The aftermarket is LAME. Where is Eibach and the rest of the aftermarket??? Thank you for the photos and trying to sort these issues out.
Most people that slam a truck end up doing wheels anyway. Do them at the same time, get a proper offset for the suspension and you are done.
McGs is top notch and having a kit of theirs I am VERY pleased...It isnt that they are made wrong, but you can only do so much w/ poor OEM geometry which is the real issue here.

Mine did that to!!!!! If I change the front back to the factory spindles and put the Mcgauphy's front lowering springs on would that get my wheels in or would they stick out regardless?
