That's what I'm running with my 37s I just thought it seems a little high. I hope it will go down when I go to 40s

I want to run the swamped m16 since that's what I'm running now and it lasts forever on the road and is great in the mud but I'm gonna have to ditch the 18s and going to 20s or 17s if I want to go to the 40

No not yet. I switched to the fabtech lift because my spindle lift was arough ride. But I should by spring time. Quick question how are you clearing your 37s? I'm having a little trouble with my 2.5 inch coils with the 6 inch drop down bracket. I put a .5 inch top plate spacer on but my upper a arm was completely maxed out.

don't cut it just spend 10 minutes with the hammer and you're done.

Try it when you are frustrated. Once you bend it a little it gets easier. I originally tried it with a rubber mallet to preserve the paint but it went no where. I had to use a decent sized hammer. A hammer for nails probably won't cut it.


Here's mine and I'm not a big guy by any means.

no problem. I could imagine the other way would be harder and this way closes the gap some to. Also it helps to remove the tire so you can get a bigger swing.
