    The CV's angles are not bad at all, surprisingly. I have a diff drop kit and was planning on putting it in but I'm having second thoughts. I guess it cant hurt??

    Thanks for the compliments guys, I think it turned out good. Only thing left to do is a new, longer rear brake line, much needed.

    Had to do a small amount of trimming to the plastic lower bumper valence as well as hammer the pinch weld behind the front tires. No big deal and looks good with the 285s

    Also, noticed quite a few posts from people looking for a write up on the 5100/AAL install, so I took quite a few pics while doing the work. Planning on throwing a little write up together, even though the lift is fairly simple install. Only advice, if you question the install, get help from another buddy. I completed the lift myself, start to finish including compressing the coils (with a cheapo compressor from knechts). So, it can all be done andy actually a pretty simple install.
