Yep, not cheap but I they were great with responding via telephone to all my questions. I was concerned about the polyurethane bushings but at least these bushings can be replaced at $2.50 each and there is zirk fittings on the heads to grease with.

Do you have any good or bad experience with the product?

Have a look at my build. I installed the full set with panhard bar as well when I did my lowering kit. Simple to install, and setting the pinion angle is dead easy now, so no matter if you lift or lower you can make the changes.

So a good thing I ordered the "pinion angle guide" tool?

Should I get it rear aligned after I swap them out? Any suggestions on the swap out? I figure jack up, jack stand at frame, drop rear axle with jack under dif and swap one at a time.

You won't need to realign the rear, the joys of a solid rear axle, the rotors are pretty much forced to stay at the same angle of attack. Now, unless you install them with very different lengths on your control arms, then you'd need to realign.

I used a lift myself, but that method will work just fine. You'll notice the axle will shift sideways when you drop the panhard bar, but start with the same length and when you reinstall it should keep everything in line. Just check your wheel gaps when you're done and your side to side fender/tire edge gap and make any adjustments from there.

Thanks!

Per Spohn, a 6" needs about 1" and a 4" needs 3/4" so I figure I will likely be adding 1/2" for the 2 1/2" rear pucks I have.
