yeah for now i will keep the 235's on there. i know it will look goofy. but with gas the way it is, i want to do the tires, rear axle, and regear all at once.

now its completely done!











i do have very slight vibes around 30mph so im thinking my 4* shim may be a little too much. it doesnt really sit higher in the rear either which is a surprise. all around its around 5.5" right now.

so i got to flex it out completely for the first time today and the front over compresses. so i need to add more bumpstops. my coils rub the frame and the axle on the inner C's. and my LCA's are a little long so when i flex, my tires rub the front of the flares.

Looks good, I like it with those tires actually. Yours looks surprisingly level, my 4.5 kit still has around 6" in the back after almost 3 years.
