  1. The spindles on the 4x4 version have recessed pockets for the ball joint nut so that it clears the cv axle. Qwank has the belltech spindles and they have a different design but both spindles require you to trim the balljoint stud even with the nut. Here's a pic of mine so you can see what I'm talking about. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. Those spindles won't fit a 4x4. You would need to buy their 4x4 specific spindles (34204) which also come with upper control arms. Also, I don't know about their lowering struts for the front, but the spring cups like kit #34160 uses will not fit with lowering spindles. I used the spindles and 2" springs up front to and a flip kit in the rear to give e me a 4/6. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    That looks killer! I think it came out just right Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Good point about settling... Strange that adding 2" spindles only brought the truck down 1" though. Looks like you have plenty of clearance with the upper ball joint. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Sorry to hear about the cutoff wheel mishap, glad you're alright. Give the truck a few days, and drive it around some more, then measure again in a couple hundred miles, just to see if the truck settles any. Mine settled an additional inch after driving it around a while. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  7. IF your angles are out of spec, then yes, shims should fix it. But the shop will need to verify that is the actual problem first. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Check your driveline angles first. This is the most probable cause. Here's a link to some info explaining what you're looking for https://www.drivelinesnw.com/part-trouble-shooting/vibration-analysis/angle-analysis/measuring-and-correcting-angle-problems/ Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Hopefully those are clear enough for you to see. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    The only thing you need to pay close attention to is the upper ball joint. On the mcgaughys spindles, there is a recessed pocket for the nut and you have to cut the remainder of the stud even with the nut. This is to clear the large knuckle on the cv axles. I'll see if I can get a pic shortly so you can see it. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. I reused mine. Probably gonna get new ones when I install the caltracs though... Torque to yield 3 times is a bit much lol. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. And the ones on ebay are off wrecked trucks with scratches, broken tabs, cracks etc. I just can't justify almost 2k to replace perfectly good headlights just for the led blinker. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. Clicked on this thread in Tapatalk really hoping it was a for sale post lol. Snatch those headlights up or tell me where they are so I can! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. It's hard to do and have it stick, but it can be done. Just have to make sure whoever does it is really good and knows what he's doing. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Still drives like stock, if not better. Not too shabby for a half assed video shot from my phone lol Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
