    I was looking for the exact on the fronts.............if you dont mind:)? Measure from the center of the hub on the rim to the bottom of the fender on both sides. I want to see your lift numbers using the toyec 3/4" top plate. I am getting spacers and really need to be exact to get the proper stance. Thankyou

    if you could do the rear too cool.....not so concerned about rear but it would help.

    i think the truck rides better with the new parts, tho i havnt banged around off road with it yet. i have steering wheel shaking but i believe thats from a crummy balancing job on the old tires w/ new rims. well see if the they're still there after a legitimate balance job when the new tires go on... also, when i slowly take off, there's a small vibe, im pretty sure its the carrier bearing angle tho. when i lifted my f250 6"s, i dropped the carrier on that thing and it went away. i ordered the drop bracket kit just didnt feel like messing with it...(easiest part of the whole job) ill keep yall posted on what goes on...

    Ok ya..........at 2" rear lift your gonna want the CB drop prob. Im prob gonna grab axel shims as well so if I have(which i will i think) a take off shudder or vibe im gonna install them. You didnt do a diff drop either huh? Im still on the fence although it seems that its not necessary is the concensus.

    Def keep us posted.

    This is the same spacer you used and the longer studs right? I have 885s and 5100s already. This is all I need right?
