    I'm not worried about the body mount holding up... By "hope fore the best", I meant rubbing. ;)

    so got the icons installed and the manual said to use the stock bolts for the bottom mount but i know for a fact it needs to be a size bigger bolt because the heim is slightly bigger in diam. i'll get to that soon. she still leans a little to the driver side, which is really odd but oh well. i need to make a spanner wrench and try to lift them slightly more to level it all out.


    these spacers were 2.75" when i put them on in '09. now they are down to 2".

    found a pretty decent deal on chevy 17" wheels. all 4 for $100. they are 7.5" wide and have a bs of 5.5" from what i've read. opinions on this for my 37"s? i've got 1.25" wheel spacers to add to this as well to get it a little more further from the axle but will the 4.25" BS be enough?

    No way I see that working... :eek: Steering would be insanely limited and you might even rub the UCA if not be very close to it... You want a minimum of 3.0 BS on 8" wide wheel if you don't want to eat the frame. And you gotta test fit or verify the bore on those wheels... Most chev wheel bores are much smaller than our bores.

    i knew about the bore sizes being smaller, that's where my wheel spacers would fix it :D my current wheels are 7.5" wide but idk the BS. i could not be lazy and measure. dangit i'm doing everything i can to not break down and buy a set new.
    i'm torn between a new gun and wheels haha
