Very good point. Here's a question I haven't asked anyone yet. I have a adjustable Track Bar and it's been relocated already, do I have to relocate it even more again? Or just adjust it?

They need to run parallel for proper steering geometry, hope this helps!

Looks excellent, did you end up shaving the fenders? If so how did it go? I just bumped up to 315/75R16/10's so I'll be shaving them as well most likely. I got 1.5 hub centric spacer's as well just incase. If I do shave I'll take lots of pics during it to show, and I'm probably going to cut vertically then fold the fenders in ward. Anyone got any advice for that?

Yeah I trimmed the front a few years back, just cut relives about 1" deep across the while arch and folded the cuts back. Went smooth but looks like crap
But hey my first body work experience went pretty good!

But I plan on cutting more and doing a much better job.
