    I shaved the bump down. but the problem is that if you go lower then 4.5 in then you lose travel for the upper ball joint witch made the upper a arms crack

    that makes so much sense.....it's kinda like notching the crossmember but not adjustable.......are you worried about that bolt being so close to the bottom of the crossmember at all?? did you have to reinforce it at all?? i also noticed that you chopped out a little piece in the front of the crossmember.......was that so you could get the bolt in??

    edit.....nvm that's just like a skid plate piece or something

    Nope, its actually if anything, stronger down at the very bottom, because if you notice, there is a lip, and the lip makes it alot stronger.

    As for the cutout, you guessed it, that was the only way i could get to it.

    To adjust it, measure drill the holes and set the truck down, if its not level, jack it up and get a file and file some of the high side out, do that a few times, get it good, send it in to get an alighnment and bam, your done.

    MY trucks been lowered 5 inches for ever and i dont have any tire wear.

    ok, so u gotta drill new holes an inch or so lower than the original key, then u gotta install GRADE 8 or higher bolts in the new hole, so the key can rest on it? can u take it back up to stock height if u want or are you screwed after you do that? could u do it without hacking up your crossmember???

    that way is not adjustable. however if you make a mount that goes on the bottom of the xmember you can put threads in it to lift it back up. If you trust your welds
