My truck goes in on the 11th to Solo for the 19" kit and spring under...I'll start a build thread when it happens.

The arms are 4.5" over and I think the spindles add another 1-2" per side.

Is that WMS to WMS or outside of tire to outside of tire? If tires, what size are they and what are the specs on your wheels, wheel spacers, etc? haha Also is that measurement with the arms pretty close to flat or do they have some angle to them?

Sorry for so many questions, there are just so many variables and you seem to be several inches narrower than a lot of guys running narrower LT kits.

Outside of 35x12.5 tires with pro comp 7089 rims 17x9 with 4.5 bs, no wheel spacers. My lower arms are probably 1.5" higher at the inner frame pivot points than at the outer point. Upper arms are pretty much flat.

I'm guess your backspacing is the difference. A 9" wheel with 4.5" BS splits the wheel in two, so assuming your tires is also split down the middle at the WMS, you can subtract 12.5" from the 88" giving you a WMS to WMS of about 75.5". Let's say you gain about 0.5" when the lowers are flat (since the WMS is closer to the lowers than the uppers) so a WMS to WMS of about 76". That is about 11" wider than OEM which gives you +5.5" over per side so you gained about +1" over per side from the spindles.
