    lol, not startin anything here.

    i'm havin an odd problem. when i take turns really fast now the inside tire be it left or right squeals like a pig and the vehicle "drifts" out and doesn't stick to the road like it use too.. i haven't getten an alighnment yet because i have to replace the pitman and idler arms. any input on this problem? i can say that hefty 4x4 sway bar does a much better job 4 inches closer to the ground, almost no body roll at all.

    i hear yea on the almost non present body roll.. i just put my belltech keys in tonight. i drove it around fro a lil and i was amazed... when i drove it, it seemed fine, i will let you know if mine does the same thing, it possibly could be because of the pitman arms, or idler arms, or possibly your tire rubs. lol i dunno your the mechanic here! lol

    i'm hopin its just the arms wore out. the tires definately don't rub, the bump stops get the control arm before the tire hits anything important like the fender flares. lol

    got any pics of yours lowered?

    Layinlo ill gives u some props for sayin that lowerin a 4x4 past 3 inches it bad because to day i was drivin it down the driveway and the wheel cocked sideways and start scrapin on the fenders ..because the axle that i took out held the disc brakes to the spindle and the whole deal fell off....i just took the end of my axles and stuck them in there and they are in there solid now it s looks real cool the wheel is about 1/2 away from the wheel well and it doesnt rub and it stil rides decent

    no mines not a sealed unit the disc brakes arent connected to the spindle only the caliper so thats what was holdin it on the whole time...then we cut the end of the axle of and stuck it back in there and it held everything together
