    I just had the drop kit installed and have rubbing like a mofo, Falken 295/35/24. It seems it's on the front wheel well (drivers side) and sounds/appears to be hitting my front sway bar on passenger side. Any good fixes?

    Tony, nice ride! I'm running the bell tech 3-4 rear spring (5305?) with shock extenders and the 1" spacers under the springs. I want it another inch lower in the rear so I am planning on removing the spacer this weekend. The question that you could help me with is should I shorten the auto ride sensor link some more? Do you have a rule of thumb for their length? The lower you go the shorter the link correct? My compressor doesn't seem to run much and holds air fine; doesn't leak down overnight. BTW my front was lowered with bell tech 2" dropped spindles too. Rides rough in the front but I think the shocks are shot, 70K miles and leaking. Thanks for the help. Randy

    with the cromoly control arms and front/swaybar with the custom endlinks i never have stability problems in the rain.. plus 16 inch 6 piston brakes in front make this truck stop just as good as my ctsv.
