    Yep, BMFH & pound the pinch welds over, and as far as hitting the inside frame rail you'll have to live with it....

    if this won't get rid of the rubbing you have 3 choices
    1. get smaller tires
    2. cut and weld
    3. more lift

    Do a diff drop, that'll help & didn't you have some extra goodie on there throwing your cv's into a batshit angle ??


    Anything over 3" with IFS you'll need a drop bracket, you really need to SAS (so do I )

    You need a good spanner wrench & some guys jack up the front to take some weight off to adjust, make sure threads are clean too i reckon...
