Finally got this installed, so far so good. A small clunk feel in the steering wheel on certain bumps, unsure what that is. I’m definitely going to be upgrading to full coilovers as soon as something I want comes out. Or MAYBE teraflex shocks set on like 1”. This is the full kit, the angles don’t seem too bad to me. The CV joint on the inside isn’t ideal though, it’s almost like there’s just too much boot there and it’s crunching up. That being said I definitely wouldn’t go any further with it.

Front fender is 46 1/4 and rear is about 45 7/8, it sits pretty level to me. Maybe slightly higher in the front.

Initial Driving impressions: it drives surprisingly good for this type of setup. But anyone who thinks this drives same or better than stock needs to re evaluate a stock truck. There doesn’t seem to be a huge power loss, at least in normal acceleration so that’s a plus. The 3.92s help for sure there. Little bouncy over bumps, your normal crappy shock and preload spacer feel. Tires seems pretty good on the initial run, I don’t even know what psi they are at so should be better once I air down.

Came out pretty awesome I think! I’ll have to clean it and get some better pictures.

Glad I get to be the first to say that is badass!

This looks fantastic! A little high in the front for my preferences but looks good man.

Thanks guys! I think the driveway is throwing it off, the driveway has a decent grade to it. I’ll have to take one on actual flat ground

Just realized no one greased the upper ball joint, which is mostly my fault lol. At least I haven’t driven it that far ha. Going to get a grease gun it seems! Most likely the cause of metal bump sensation over bumps

Edit: nope. But I found my wheel liner bolt had come loose at the bottom where we trimmed it, and I had a dust cover rubbing the rotor. Last time I drove it, still had the banging feeling but I’ve since fixed these two things so we shall see. Going back to the shop tomorrow anyways.

Figured out my issue. The new crossmember Bolt was hitting the CV axle. But just barely when the diff flexed. Cut it off on the end like a thread or so and now it seems solid.

Edit: Looking at the instructions, I think the bolt should have gone the other way now. Which would make sense...

And another photo to show the level-ness

Did you end up going 35”/20”? I’m pretty heavily leaning towards a 6” kit since no one is putting out a 4” yet. Torn on 35” vs 37”.

Its in my signature, 325/50 (34.8x13) and 22x12. I would stick with 35s, what Size wheel are you looking to run? Width not diameter.

Sorry, don’t see signatures on Tapatalk. I was leaning 20 or 22x12 with a 13.5” wide tire.

35s all the way, you won’t be able to run 37s without hacking the back fenders up. You’ll want at least 6” IMO, if not 7 with 12 wides. I meant to take a photo of the trimming and clearance but I didn’t think about it. I can if you want to see.

Here’s the trimming photos, or lack there of. I took the mudflap off and then trimmed the bottom of the liner, but didn’t cut any sheet metal.

Where my finger is, there was a little tab that held the mudflat clip. Have to hammer that back up in there. But you can see with a 37 it would be real close. You might be able to get away with some Minor cutting and just not turning the wheel too far. If I went 37s I’d run a 10 wide just to make life more enjoyable.

Here’s what it looked like pre modification. One with mudflap. One without.

After seeing it parked all over town, I think it has a slight lean but it’s not too bad. Kind of depends on what you think level is because some look at hood to tailgate and some look at fender to fender. I like the stance though
