    My plan is to keep the sway bar. This is my daily driver and I have a long commute.

    I have a shop that will align the truck to whatever I want.

    Since you got everything 2nd hand ( and had it all rebuilt) , did you buy sway bar relocate brackets? They are basically blocks that will drop the sway bar mounting points like an inch.

    Ah, didnt know. thats cool. ADS sends them separately

    @crashdb, drop your IFS skid the day before you do the install. Will save you some headache. With my skids the sway bar was a bitch to work around with it on. Ymmv

    Does ADS automatically include them when you order coilovers with resis or do I need to ask for them?

    I ordered my fronts from headstrong. They came with them. So from ADS, I'd ask them if they supply them. They came with those and resi mounts. I'd also look into buying a spare set of coil wrenches from them. I keep a pair in the truck and a pair at home.

    Your rear wont come with resi mounts, I bought some from accutune that are made by fox, that come with self tapping screws.

    Shit. My garage is done. I just want three more runs of 240v. Makes it easier because there's no upper level.

    Ever just sit around at work researching alternative methods of emergency brakes?

    I'm debating whether I should ask my landlord about adding a 240v outlet vs just getting a 120v welder to learn on

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Not emergency brakes, but researching _________.

    Si. I looked at that option and other things. There'd be some fab work for any option as far as I can tell. Maybe in the future....

    That's a great idea! I'm fairly sure my dryer is electric. I'd need an extension cable probably twice as long though

    Definitely possible! Just more expensive since you’ll need thicker wire.
