    did you loosen the alignment cams? that will let the control arm freely drop all the way down. be sure to mark their clocking with a sharpie before you do so you can roughly get it back in alignment when tightening back up.

    Been smacking it with a rubber deadblow hammer and its budged a fingernail thickness. It doesn't spin out it just pushes right?

    Put the nut back on and hit it with a metal hammer. It has added shock value. Do you have weight off the shock?

    You have an impact wrench? Spin it from the head side to break it free. If not put the nut back on upside down almost flush with bolt and wack with mini sledge.

    Getting ready to do shock relocate as well. So, with 3.5 BS you were rubbing when stuffed? So, with 0.75 boras added, you are now essentially 2.75 BS?

    Yeah with the 35s on 3.5" BS I rub the shock body when fully stuffed. And yep, with the .75" Bora spacers I guess I'm technically at 2.75" BS now.

    If you have any scraps of 2x4 or some other wood laying around use that as a buffer for the sledge and wail away.

    Stupid question, but are you at full droop or is your jack lifting up the LCA?

    Jacked the front end up and found the driver’s side bearings are bad. Called Detroit Axle for a warranty claim. They told me it would be $45 to ship the new hub assembly to me. That’s the cost for a “lifetime warranty” replacement. It cost me $150 14 months ago for both sides. I had to replace the passenger side in Sept. it cost $10 for shipping 3 months ago. I would not recommend Detroit Axle for anything! Both sides went out in 14 months and now they are trying to charge me 3/4 the price for a new order for just the shipping. Hell no! AVOID Detroit Axle at all cost everyone! Rant over!!

    Hey guys. I have a quick question for both of you. I am currently running 275/70/17 on stock suspension and the TRD SEMA wheels (-21 mm offset). I was getting some rubbing with this set up but trimmed a bit of the wheel well and managed to get none afterwards. I am thinking about going to 285/70/17 tires (can get a really good deal on this size only) and was probably going to do a cab mount chop. Do you think I will run into any issues? Do either of you have new UCA to correct camber? Is that necessary in your experience to run the 33" tires. Any tips for me before I screw anything up or get in over my head?

    FYI, I was ready to upgrade the suspension but had some extraordinary expenses pop up so I am putting it off for now. But I need new tires asap so I figure I will get the tires I really want now and upgrade the suspension when I can.
