I've been working through the expected creaks and rattles and this past weekend I noticed a couple of clearance issues while installing longer SS braided brake lines.
The jounce shocks are not playing nice with the u-bolt flip kit I installed. The way things line up is just slightly off and the jounce are hitting the u-bolts. I'm going to pull the mounting plates, have some steel welded to the frame to reinforce everything, and will drill and re-mount the jounce shocks 1" farther forward and that issue will be fixed.
Slightly more complicated is that the driver's side rear shock contacts the rear disc brake caliper when the axle articulates. I'll probably have to grind off the bottom shock mounts and move them inward 2 inches, providing the shock bodies don't then contact the truck frame.
Once I get those issues worked out I'll be ready for some airtime!
