    if the compressor is on the spring square it can't come off. did my 5100s on the taco, tundra, and even my camry when I swapped struts . ...guess it's the idea behind it? I'm more afraid of air hoses popping off the fittings...that shit is terrifying lol

    Not yet. I think they shipped from Magnuson to the vendor earlier this week. Before it ships to me I need to change my shipping address to my office so my wife doesn't intercept it.

    lol, I started doing that as well (shipping to where I work). I'm more worried about neighbor's stealing shit but I guess in some ways, a wife could be more of a threat...

    I would rather have someone steal it. At least then you can get an insurance claim.

    Very valid point. I've had a 150psi air line pop off a Chicago fitting in front of me before. Scary AF.

    sittin' pretty :headbang:

    I need an alignment as my tires are a bit toe'd in and more-so on the driver's side visually, but driving home 30 miles on the freeway from Jason's shop tonight my truck drove as straight as an arrow lol. Actually felt better than it did before, feels like it wants to wander less...but I assume that's got less to do with the alignment and more to do with the better UCAs.

    It didn't, unfortunately. Still have the turning pops/clunks. But this at least ruled out the most worrisome part of the equation, that my ball joints might be the cause. I wanted to upgrade my UCAs anyhow and the leaking lower BJ's were replaced under my extended warranty so it didn't really cost me much in the long run to rule these things out. May be looking at steering bushings or wheel bearings next, but I'm done worrying about it for awhile. Not so urgently anyhow.

    Much better than before when it was 1.75" higher in the rear, little less than one now.

    Think I'm going to be selling my front bumper in early January. Just throwing it out there in case one of the homie's is interested. Dezert Toy Fabrication Type C bumper fits 2012-15.

    Your truck would look sick with 35's. I'm probably only going to go slightly bigger than stock when I do, still do too much commuting in my truck to take a huge MPG hit.

    I don't really care about MPG's so big ass tires for me. Also planning on a new front bumper and winch. Hopefully my Prinsu rack shows up by Christmas too.
