Can someone take a pic showing where the rear uppers mount to the frame vs. where the rear lowers mount to the frame?

One pic that shows both the upper and lower in the same pic would be ideal.

It uses an adjustable A-arm similar to IROs. The adjustment is at the axle. The other side mounts in the stock location.

The lowers mount a few inches rear of the tranny cross member. IIRC from the install instructions.

Thanks, I also looked at some more pics of the kit.

The rear lowers are considerably longer than the uppers.

I wonder how much pinion angle change there is throughout the suspension travel?

Yeah, they are. It is almost identical to IROs rear setup, though.

Just finished the front end of the lift today. Only problem I'm having is my exhaust is rattling on the crossmember. Anyone else had this problem?

i have a different lift but had this issue with my new TC belly skid I just installed. I just went and got some exhaust wrap and that took care of the rattling..you may need to just check for any sagging in your exhaust though because I would imagine it would be designed to clear the muffler.

It's not touching anywhere while sitting still but when I drive it it's obnoxious. I'll get some wrap tomorrow and see if that takes care of it.

yeah, i had about an 1/8'' clearance. usually sitting it was ok, but any bumps made it rattle like crazy for a few seconds...the wrap did the trick for me though, just kind of a pain to work in there
