What happened to your lower strut clevis? Looks damaged in the picture.
Thanks for all the input. When I save up some money I might get the longer BWoody links. As of right now, since the links r pretty pricey I'm just gonna rock stock til something goes wrong. If I'm dropping some serious money soon it'll be on some upper control arms so I can get it aligned before my tires start wearing funny.
On another note, I will definitely be changing the UCA for the JBAs with uniball joint in them. This is something that will give in after considerable wheeling. also, I noticed when the truck is lifted on hoist, the UCA drops and touches the bracket that the UCA is mounted to, and the strut lower cup touches the wheel knuckle (both marked with red arrows in below pic). This is what I believe is causing a slight 'clank' noise when I go over a steep speedbump quickly (when the wheel travels down the bump (maximum articulation on the suspension). The JBAs should change these angles and move the knuckle away from the strut, and hopefully clear the mount bracket, also relieving the angle on the joint.
IMO, sway bars are needed for on-road driving, well at least on the highways where I live .. I wouldn't want to be driving on these interchanges without a sway link!!
I would expect both BB and OME to change the location of the strut plate, but it seems in this case perhaps more so? where does the strut plate sit in relation to the wheel knuckle when jacked up, would be interested to see a photo of that ... I will be going down the OME route much later, but for the purpose of the wheeling I am intending to do (Sand dunes), it is not necessary at all. Once the truck is no longer a daily driver it will probably get an SL lift for the rocks
