Guys, sorry about the b/o. We have sold so many of these kits it is unreal. But good news is I had shocks come in yest and they are packing today to ship. Shipping said we had enough to cover all the backorders. So the wait wasnt as bad as expected.

*Begins to drool on desk.* Best news at work all day.

Rough Country gets a big shiny star sticker for be up front honest about the back order and making good on expected delivery times.

Quadratec and Parts America... Bah! Still waiting to see if they get back to me before I ask them to credit me instead of waiting.

3 bolts on each side.. loosen them all but don't remove them. do one side at a time, remove bolt add the spacer and use the longer bolts supplied. others do the mml kit (motor mount lift) so they don't lose that clearance by dropping the case. i've i ever get to doing the mml then i can easily remove the spacers.

I ordered my 3.25 a week and a half ago and just read Jeff's reply that the back ordered shocks came in. Now why can't all of the other companies just be that honest? I had an air conditioning parts company swear to me that my order was "just going out" for a week, and still nothing. I talked to a different person later at the same company and they said the parts were back ordered... for another month. I called their corporate office and raised hell. I buy A LOT from them, so they ended up kissing my a$$. Thanks for being up front Jeff. Looking forward to receiving my lift.

I just received my kit and since I've never done this before I've decided to have a shop do the work. The question I have is how do you tell if the axle is slightly off center after the install as some people have reported? I do plan on having the alignment checked afterwards.
Thanks,

Thanks,
Measure from the edge of the rim to the edge of the flare on each side. The two measurements should be nearly identical.

I received ship notification earlier. I should also have a few things arriving tomorrow from Quadratec. *Drools~*

First rather involved build I will be doing.

Did you give them your email address?
The notification I got was that basically there is a package that has a pre-made UPS label on it. It may not even have physically left their warehouse yet.
