Any word from the shop? Or have you not taken it in yet?

When you relocated the rear spring buckets and did the rear outboard did the rear rise up? Since installing the Savvy 4" I noticed the rear sits a bit low.

Nope it stays the same. Mine never sat that low in the rear, and I'm running the same springs.

I will see what Gerald thinks. I have seen a number of threads on the Savvy 4" rear sitting low. Even the front seems a bit lower than yours.

This was the same day I installed the springs and they have settled a little.

This is when mine first went on. I think it was at 5" or so with the HD springs.

I picked up my Modular Under Armor from Gerald last night and completely spaced on asking him about the springs. I will just wait and see what Blaine thinks when he does the rear outboard.

So I'm battling a pretty sketchy DW. I get it at about 60+ on the freeway when I hit a bump. Pulled the steering off last weekend and found a shot TRE. Ordered one up from savvy, about to head to the shop to replace it. Hopefully that's what it is.

Took 2 1/2 hours to get the damn seized tie rod end out. BFH, BFWrench, breaker bars, torches, pb blaster, and some muscle finally got it out. I blame it on the one time we crossed a dry salt lake bed that wasn't so dry. I put in the new TRE (with anti seize) and popped the other out and put anti seize on it also. Drives better now, no death wobble.

Awesome man, stoked it worked out. And really glad the tre didn't snap off lol. Ps your last welding on the tubes came out good. Keep practicing when you come by.
