    ^What I enjoy about the WF. It's not blatantly loud and annoying.

    Anyone interested in a set of WO bench covers? I'll make a official FS thread tonight.

    Only blemish is a small burn hole on the D/S back out near the edge. Black/Charcoal coloring.

    $75 + shipping.

    I re packed mine when I did the spindles. Wasn't too tough, I'd say the worst part was getting the calipers off

    not really, I got 600lb coils when I went MT so there's really no difference, but I can't give you an exact answer because I didn't measure it xD but I know if I was stock it wouldn't have worked

    But thanks :)

    Question for everybody. Has anybody had any irregular tire wear issues after changing to a wheel with different back spacing? I started feeling steering wheel wobble around like 55-65 mph around the same time as having new wheels put on. So I took them to get rebalanced thinking this was the problem. This did not fix the problem so I took it back again and they examined the tires and showed me that I had cupping along the inside edge of my left front tire and a little on the back right tire. Is this just a coincidence that it happened the same tire as mounting new wheels? Or is it most likely because of the wheels. They are summit racing wheels 15x7 3.75 bs. Any input is appreciated.

    when you run a different offset or a different width wheel you run the risk of changing the "scrub radius" (look it up) in a way that can adversely effect tire wear.

    This is because you're changing how the weight of the truck is supported by the tire and suspension geometry. From the factory the load is going to be concentrated on the middle of the tire, but when you start changing wheel and tires dimensions, it sometimes (not always) can screw up all of the work that the engineers did and move the load of the vehicle to the outside or inside of the tire instead of the middle.

    This^

    Rear could be because of axle alignment, as for the fronts and the wobble. Did you go oversized offroad tires? If so sounds like you need to get your tires force matched and balanced staticly. As for the wear on the front, again alignment issue probably due to improper toe.

    Will be selling my Struts, have roughly 8 months of driving on them, the higher rate stock height springs, and the 1" alum spindle spacers and hardware for sale. Getting the adjustable coil overs, will not have use for these items now. See attached for any questions on where spacers go or condition of strut and coil.

    100+ shipping for the struts
    150+ shipping for the springs
    120+ shipped for the spacers

    Items will be coming from Tempe, Az 85281 if you want to calc your shipping cost. I am willing to part items out. PM if interested.

    No those are DJM drop arms, Granted I could have done a better job as I had to do quite a bit of grinding to get the new balljoints to fit. :(

    The worn out rubber piece is my upper ball joint right? The cover for it anyway. Is there a good place to get these? Oreilly wants $13 for one brand and around $70 for moog brand I don't understand why there is such an extreme difference in price.:confused:
