    As they are the only ones I have ever owned, yes. I figured if I was spending the money I might as well spend a bit extra for TC. I had heard that they were less prone to squeeking and the uniball was bit higher quality. They sure seem to be made well.

    Looking good. You might want to get the Axel Relocation plates for the rear, If you notice your tires hitting the fenders.

    good to know. i currently still have the stock sizse (265/70/16) but i was planning on doing a similiar drop and going up to that size. its not that much difference which is good since i would be buying tires later than the lift since i just bought these 4k miles ago.

    Nice work and thanks for the write up. Very helpful as I am about to embark of the same work myself on my '03 only with a set of Donahoe's up front.

    I have been going back and forth about an AAL or leaf pack in the back. How did you decide? I was planning on asking Wheeler's for an opinion as well.

    I figured that my old leaves were pretty beat and AAL's would just be a patch, and if I was gonna spend the money, I might as well spend all of the money.
