when you get your 32's , let me know how they fit. i was thinking going 32's but the 31's were free. so for now i will run the 31's. . thinking about picking up the rough country lift, so i can get the control arms, and possibly tuck a 33 under there with some trimming.

they are cranked up pretty far. probably a few turns left on the bolt. but not much.

the add a leaf took about 10 minutes to install at work with a lift and air tools, but i also replaced the u-bolts while i was back there. i figured why not considering a local spring shop made up all 4 for about 20 bucks . the body lift i did at home in the drive way and pretty much spent all day , but i took my time, and enjoyed some beverages, but wasnt that hard. next step i think is going to be the rough country kit. but probably not till spring.

had a little bit of rubbing when i leaving my gf's apartment building parking lot this evening from the RF. pretty sure it was rubbing on the backside of the fender. hoping the steelies i ordered have the right backspacing so this wont happen.

Not only did I do 2 inch BL and Add A leafs, I also made my own shackles for another inch and put in ball joint spacers up front
