Really appreciate it man! Looking over all of these build threads on here helped me make all these decisions. So happy with how it turned out. And I was originally going to stay stock wheels but once my buddy showed I thought they would finish the whole build off well

Here is how I did my pinch weld mod the night before I got my tires I left the mold on and did not cut it and when I put my tires on I realized I need to cut. I still rub in very hard turns. I will need to cut off more of the mold and grind down the pinch weld whenever I get a chance

Also took my sway bars off today. Was a pain in the *** to get off. Took them off because of a very annoying squeaking noise whenever I drive and because they are stock sway bars. I still have the squeaking noise and a knocking sound now. I'm going to take it to the dealership to have them look at it. Only front right side. Possibly my wheel bearings.

Did you actually take your sway bar off? Or just the links? That would definitely explain your noises if the bar is still on without the links.

really considering getting some bwoody sway bars after reading up about them on a forum I found on here. What size extension do you think I should get for the new swaybars? 3" all around (front and rear)?

If you have no links on your sway bar at either end while driving it, is it possible your sway bar is now hanging down making contact with other components? You should have it tied up to the body/chassis somehow or remove the bar completely if you wish to continue to drive it. Hope you get it figured out.

Just got back from the dealership. Turns out I forgot to put the grease fitting on the drivers side upper a arm..... I remember forgetting to do it to. Got charged 80 for the diagnosis. Really irritated that I forgot to do it. Still makes the squeaking noise but that will go away soon once the grease settles. Probably going to buy some of those new sway bar links soon.

Should I order longer sway bars for the rear as well or just keep them stock?

So the grease fittings didn't fix the squeaking. It took too long to get the grease fitting on and it dried out the ball joint even with all the grease on it. Got a new ball joint and I'm going to install it today as well as the rest of the lights. And I think I'm going to just ride with out sway bars. Don't really think I need them.

if youre interested in Bwoody links I will have a set of greasable links for sale shortly. front and rear, maybe have 1500mi on them. I hear youll be fine with stock length front and rear if youre lifted- at least that's what bwoody told me last time I talked to them
