    Lots to come at some point. Hopefully soon.
    Okay so right now all I have done is the TSB. I ordered some 265/75/16 BFGs that are sitting in my garage:yay:and I should be getting the 5100s on Monday. My question is how is this gonna work with the alignment. If I install the tires now and 5100s next week then will I be paying for 2 alignments? Im also gonna rattle can my wheels after they install the BFG's however will that then affect the new alignment/balance?

    paint doesn't affect alignment unless you do like 100 coats...than maybe it will...lol

    don't pay for balance and alignment 2...that's my suggestion...save the money and use it for another mod...

    Got alot I want to do but we'll see, that's what the forum is for...
    I would wait until both are completed then do the alignment, it wouldn't kill your tires to be out for one week unless you are doing 1000 miles in that time frame. I did my lift, then 10 days later the tires, 2 days later my alignment. Always rotate your tires to prolong life. Painting your wheels shouldn't affect your balance.
