    yank out #184. where #185 fits into is where you would notch DOWN for more drop.

    ok thanks again no problem. only problem is couldnt get the tools. my moms stupid dog aparently heard me comen.LOL and instead of just going out to the shop and unlocking it my dad only locked the freaken small door knob lock instead of the deadbolt.... AWWWWWWWWW...LOL so looks like ill have to go out thier after all. unless my work has a good cuter and torch wrench but i highly doubt it. maybe ill just say i got plans and cannt stay. or maybe i wont and just try again tomorow and hope he locks it like he usualy does. but next time im definatly taken the other spare key for the botom lock and geting a copy made.
    the back end definatly jumps around more and feels diferent. not sure until i do both sides.LOL then ill just loosen the bolts and see how much of a drop i get. but with just the 3inch drop in back its realy not that much diferent but if you know how high it sits stock.LOL i took a picture with it before with a piece of tape over the fender whell where the top of the tire is. ill take the new pictures tomorow and post them.

    tho im simply gonna drop the tbar screws right now and see how much i like it. and if i want more ill notch it. how much more will it drop with the notch?

    dang i thought people said i would only get like a inch with the Tbar screws.LOL now its actualy a inch lower than the rear. tho it looks good. i like it. tho i might just put the screws back in alittle bit to make it even. MAYBE. we'll see.LOL rides alittle ruffer but its a good sacrifice for lowered.LOL mainly i think its the rear bump stops hiting. and im kinda skeard of cuting it and it hiting realy hard.......

    I know what you mean, when I took mine all the way out my tire was about an inch away from the fender.

    It lookd damn cool, but my camber was WAY off and I didnt feel like paying for an alignment, so I screwed em back in half way...haha

    I'll have to take some pix after I do some body work, my truck is embarassing

    Jesses truck has negitive camber hah

    You have hail damage too? My truck is about totaled because of it. We got a killer tornado about 2 years ago and my truck was left outside...So I guess that speaks for itself.

    I'm putting on new fenders soon
    hopefully 4 new doors
    a hood
    and some rockerpannel bondo work

    Thats funny, because my alternator just burnt out 2. 3rd one this year...haha

    well mines not that bad not sure what it went thru before i got it.LOL but some realy good sized hail took it out..... but im gonna just bondo it all up and paint the thing. most of the hood im gonna cover up with a hood scoop and bondo in the joints to make it look made on thier. that will hide ALOT of damage. but the hood/roof is gonna probably take the longest the doors are just minor with stupid people hiting the doors like always and acouple hard impacts from the hail that even cracked the paint on the top rail of the back doors! its just gonna take time.....
    and now that ive droped the truck i feel so big!!!!!LOL i can see the roof fully. i measured 29inches to the fender well in front and 30 in the rear. my dad hates it and keeps saying its ruining the trucks 4x4. but in the winter if i realy want a high ride ill simply swap the block and put the Tbar screws in all the way.

    and next thing im gonna do thats realy cheap is paint the vent guards to match close enough. im so short on cash right now its realy not funny. im gonna go take a shower and go give some blood for somemore cash. my paycheck was only 253 and my half of rent is 280.....LOL this time i get 33 bucks which should help me out ALOT. plus im trying to sell some old stereo equipment that im not usen right now. you interested in a cheap good amp? works perfect selling realy low thru ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ory=18796&rd=1 ive also got a 0.5 farad capacitor ill sell for 20bucks shiped in the usa.

    well ive got another question. quite odd for me.
    the rear drivers side sits at 29, passenger back sits at 29.5
    the front drivers side site at about 28.5 with the torsion bar screw still in quite a bit. and the passenger side sits at 29.5 with the torsion bar screw completly out...... im frustrated........ id like to get it to match.
    what could be the problem? could my shocks be worn out on the lower side? springs be weak? what would you recomend doing so i can level it up all the way around? or should i leave the front end down another inch since ive got a huge stereo in the back weighing it down......

    check your tire pressure. that will make a little difference in ride hight
