Make sure you check the box of parts as soon as you get it. We received 2 left control arms the first time. Then they sent the right control arm, but with no bushings or ball joint, so they had to then send another. They were very quick to respond though.
I don't think that is a year thing. There are 3 types of control arms that come on these trucks. Mine are stamped steel, and while my tires rub them at full lock it is so little that it took me a few months of checking them before I ever even saw a mark from it. Don't sweat it so much, not a big issue unless you go crazy with tire size.
Mine rubbed slightly on the liner so I pulled them back a little with zip ties. it also rubs slightly on the frame,sway bar, and upper control arm, at full lock. Not enough to do anything though, and I have done all kinds of driving in this from towing a trailer to off roading in rock, sand, etc.
I don't know anything about your supercharger kit, but I would assume it uses an air to water intercooler setup? If so, have you verified it is full of fluid, and that it's radiator is clean and clear of debris? Is the electric water pump for that system working?
Not always, see the quote below taken from here... https://www.allstate.com/tools-and-resources/car-insurance/hit-and-run.aspx Uninsured motorist property damage coverage helps pay for repairs if your car is damaged by another driver without insurance. In some cases, it may help pay for damage after a hit-and-run. However, uninsured motorist property damage coverage isn’t available in all states. And in some states where it is available, uninsured motorist property damage does not cover hit-and-run accidents, according to the Insurance Information Institute. If you’re unsure what your policy covers, talk to your insurance agent. Uninsured motorist property damage coverage typically has a deductible.
I'm pretty confident you don't need to pull the axle out to get those bolts in. I think when the suspension is drooped all the way down with the upper separated and the shock unbolted, you can get the lower bolts in.
If you paid the dealer to install it they should be able to do it without modifying or damaging any parts or hardware. I would tell them to replace whatever they damaged, and install the lower bolts correctly. Often techs working in shops are paid a flat rate. This means they get the same amount of pay if it takes them 10 minutes, or 2 hours to install your stuff. If they can find a shortcut they can make more money. Clearly that is what happened here. I would at least ask that they replace the bolts, put them in correctly, and touch up the paint on the other parts to prevent future rust issues. I would also talk to them about some credit or a free oil change for the fact that you had to come back due to their tech being in too much of a hurry. Be sure to take photos of all the issues so you can reference them later if needed.
