Thanks! I appreciate it. Can't wait to get started after work today.

I set mine to the instructions also and did my best guess on the track bar. It drove pretty good to the alignment shop but a lot better after. When the rain stops Ill try to go measure what they are set at now. My alignment shop did recommend 1 degree balljoints though?

14 hrs later I am finished. Love everything about this kit...except those stupid flag nuts!! I broke every one in the rear. Ended up welding the brackets in. Would've done the same to the front if it didn't make getting to the transmission impossible.

No. Thought about it, but the springs and shocks are too short for it.

Haha! Now that I re-read it, that does sound funny. Let me re-phrase; the 2.2 shocks are too short to support the additional height.

No, not yet. It's been raining here and I refuse to take this thing offroading through the mud anymore after all the dirt I encountered underneath my rig that I thought I'd cleaned out.
