If Bell Tech has added a panhard bracket to their kit it would be the winner, hands down! If you have money to burn, go with the McGaughy's kit and some good shocks, as they already supply a panhard bracket with their kit (just no shocks). That being said, you could get the BT kit, and fab (or have fabbed for you) a panhard bracket relatively easily/inexpensively. This is probably the route I'll be taking, and I am still trying to convince Bell Tech to add the bracket to the kit!
As far as wheel/tire choices go, any SRT 22"x10" wheel (OE or replica) will rub slightly at full lock, lowered or not, I have SRT's w/ no drop (yet), and they rub the swaybar when fully turned. If you want NO rubbing at all, you will have to go with a narrower width/ different offset wheel than the SRT's.
I have a 4x4, and after some reading, see that I can run the 2wd kits, just cant use the aftermarket spindles. I would like to do a 2/4 drop. If the only spot it rubs is full lock thats fine, I never go full lock anyways as that puts a crap load of pressure on your p/s pump. Looking to go the way of sport/performance with my truck, make it a bit of a handler, which sounds silly but its my truck and Ill do what I want!
