I have spidertrax 1.25" in the rear, it just doesn't look like it in the pics. The front and rear tires stick out from the fenders pretty evenly.

That's sad that people have to steal suspension components these days

The AP kit I purchased was powder coated black by the original owner. It is very discrete. I like it.

Looks awesome dude.
If you had to take a guess, how much lift did you get from this? Much higher than a 3" lift?

thanks bud!

Probably around 3.5" maybe a little more than that, I didn't want to preload the coils to much and have it ride like shit. I wanted to still have plenty of downtravel too.

I have almost 2.25" of thread showing on the drivers coil and right at 2" on the passenger side. Hope that helps.

I just had that exact same problem with my LCA's going onto a 2012 double cab. They're working on getting me new ones. Seems pretty messed up that this is a recurring issue.

Also just spent an hour or so slamming my birfield on a pipe trying to release the axle. The only thing I accomplished was making a huge mess. I'm glad I found this thread, learned about cutting them out and got the part number/name for the new clips I'll likely have to purchase.

No drive line shop around here wants to touch the things.

Yea that's pretty concerning. They need to fix their jig, it's obviousley a little off and the heat from welding shouldnt be distorting them that much. Since I got my replacement arms, I haven't had any issues.

On a positive note, I'm glad this thread helped you out. If you have a napa machine shop close, I would suggest checking to see if they can press the axle shaft out of the birf for ya.

Good luck with the replacement arms!
