I haven't called yet, I might leave it... the stiffer shock up front sorta helps balance out the rear. And she'll be offroad soon!

adjusted the caster a bit. it's between 3.5-4.5 according to my little app on my phone still need to play with the draglink and remeasure my toe but I think the toe is pretty good. The brake steer decreased with the caster adjustment as well. weird.
anyways, moar pictures



And I promise some wheeling pics soon! just gotta get bumpstops, coil retainers, my spare wheel mounted in my spare tire, and some recovery gear cuz mine is worn out

Dude I had the grinder out last night to trim just so I could turn, and I just about chopped my fenders off and halved my rear bumper and yeah, that rear sway bar is tiny. I doubt it will do much. My old rig had no sway bars and I loved it. It was a bit different than this, but still...

Sounds good to me black04wj! I lack a welder is my only problem for the tank tuck... and adavis I would, but from what I've experienced with my other vehicles they like a little backpressure from the muffler, especially for bottom end torque. With 2 precats and a main cat I might have enough backpressure anyways tho... gotta get a muffler to keep her legal tho

BLACK04WJ Did you have the actual install tool or did you just use the method with two wrenches? Small update also, the issue is with my brakes somewhere. Gonna tear down and clean all my calipers, and bleed all the old fluid out. Trans fluid change will probably happen sunday, along with swapping and warrantying a cv I just replaced february that puked its guts. Might also need new front driveshaft u joint ( getting some speed related squeeking noise) but I'll replace the cv first to see if that does it. Gonna try to find some scrap 2x6 to make bumpstops out of saturday or monday, and get my coil retainers installed, and heater core bypassed in there somewhere. Always something that needs to be done!

That's the method I'll probably use then, did you order yours or is there somewhere local that carries them?
