you probably want to shorten them up some....you want your tire to be closer to the door side of the wheel well opening anyways

That's what I thought. I hate the thought of having to take everything apart, but oh well. Thanks.

all you have to do it is unbolt the arm from one point and adjust it, then bolt it back up

yes, shorten lower arms and then adjust the upper arms (front) and a-arm (rear) to get your angles back to where you want them.....i was just saying its not that hard. you dont have to "take it all back apart"

I appreciate it. I think this is the last little tweak I need to make to this kit. New wheels and tires went in this morning.

New duratracs and race line wheels? So are the wheels and tires in the picture not going to be the ones you use.

The fact that I saw grade 5 bolts on the instuctions scared me away from this kit. I might save up more and buy the IRO kit.

Just go buy some grade 8 from the hardware store. Cheaper than buying another kit. This thing is awesome!

I think what he was getting at is if they cheaped out on hardware, what else did they cheap out on?

From what I can tell from my kit, they didn't cheap out on anything. It looks like RC has finally gotten their stuff together. This kit is a beast. And I can't speak for the other guys that have installed it, but I'm extremely happy with it.
