You could run it without the rear shocks just to see if you'll get any vibes and then adjust the pinion angle to suit, then install the shocks to see where you stand.

I'm in the 16 to 17 degree neighborhood I believe. Once I get the tires back on I need to get a proper measurement.

True. Depending on the results of tomorrows cycling I might end up doing it that way.

Sometimes I can't help but thing that my rear axle brackets were installed on a Monday or Friday.

The Bilsteins must have a larger od than the OME's ? My shocks clear fine , though I did push the brake line in and down a bit .

Passenger side all ready to go.


I was on track to finish the drivers side until this happened. The brand new bolt decided to snap while I was installing the shock.



Not sure if I want to try and drill it out, or break the nut off completely and use a new one.

Thats entirely frustrating. Also- do you know why you had clearance issues with your rear shocks?

I forgot how pretty the Bilstein's looked new. I can't look away.

Chicks are allowed build threads here, right?

I had the same issue when I tilted my pinion up . As you rotate the pinion up , the lower shock mounts rotate farther under the axle which pushes the shock body into the lower spring perch .

Make sure you cut off more then you need. I cut and fit mine with the springs pulled but in the real world things get a lot closer. I had to go back and trim more.
