Stop taking pics, and put that damn lift on. Even though I do want to slap the **** out of you for going with RK.

I thought you were part of my conversation when I had problems with RK. I loved my 2.5" Max Travel, but I had some problems with customer service. All that was resolved, and they made things right.

Anyways...I can't wait to see what it looks like. Are the 37s going on this weekend as well?

RK did well by me! Walle, remember, you just didn't know what you were doing! lol. If I could go back, I may have looked into synergy a little more, but now that everthing is setup right, I love it!

Oh, and time yourself if you haven't already started installing it. I want to see if you can beat my 17 hour performance (17 straight).

I just don't like RKs arms at all. They're joints are a glorified heim joint and they use rubber bushings at one end.

WELL I LIKE RK DAMMIT! haha seriously it was the most complete 2.5" without sourcing out stuff. when it comes time to stretch everything will most likely be johnny joints, custom arms etc.

oh **** almost forgot, 37s fit without a lift! btw no rubbing as of yet, of course it is only on road till the lift comes. and from what i hear the level 8s come out to 4.25" back spacing.

got the lift in this weekend, still have to do the brake lines but other than that shes all set. pretty straight forward the rk directions are spot on, aside from the lengths they give you in the directions. i found the track bar to be way off, other than that it was great! didn't even need a coil compressor at all! with the help of a friend it took us 10 hours in total. but in that ten hours we mounted a trans in a first gen dodge, ate, and bull ****ted for a while. actual wrench time was probably around 6-7 hours. any ways here some of the pics
OH AND GUYS, YOULL SEE THEY CHANGED THE TRACK BAR MOUNT. hahah
