    another question. bagged front end...

    am i not going to lay the front with un modded stock a arms? im running a 18" rim ( 225/40/18) skid plate is a few inches of the ground aired out. i think if i de humped the arms, and maybe cut the area above the mounting points at the frame it would go lower? or is this the point i need aftermarket a arms? im running chassis tech dom 2600's up front as well if it matters. gravity werx cups

    Your probably sitting on you tierods & inner fenders. You may need to notch the frame for that. I layed out on a 245/40/18 with stock arms.

    Yep What he said... Check to see where you are hitting first then clearance that area on both sides. Then see if you lay, if not, check to see where you are hitting now, clearance.. repeat until the engine cradle hits the ground.

    You probably get more lift than me, I can untuck the tire by 6" or so which is at full lock. It looks like a donk in the front at full lift so it normally never gets above barely untucking the tires to turn.

    I never "altered" my stock arms and I laid out fine. Do the spindles first and go from there.
