These are the spacers I bought. They aren't many options for the 2wd's. Kinda wish I would have gotten a 4wd....oh well lol.

Yup, just throw the shocks on (which are really easy to install) and I think most people set them at 2.8 you will have to double check that though.

Went to Banff this past weekend, and with the level kit and the tires, no go on the underground parking. That being said its an old hotel. Long as theres 6'4" of clearance I'm good, so I imagine you'd be ok on most garages.

Oh and do I get the 5100 adj for the front and back or do I get a different series for the back. I do want a great smooth ride. The potholes here in new jersey are horrible. Thanks for the input

What tool(s) did you use to separate the ball joint and steering arm? Super cool looking by the way...

My ball joints were on super tight, the impact wrench wouldn't do it. I had to do it the old fashion way lol.....a couple of wrench's and muscle. When I got them off, I put some WD40 on them and let them soak....they went back on with no problem.

Well I just spoke to the dealership and he says even thou I'm just changing the shocks I should wait till warranty is over. It could throw off sus or if a bolt breaks that kinda stuff wouldn't be covered. Although he did hear good things about the 5100 shocks so I'll wait the 2 years and just start piling parts in my garage It was a thought tho. Thank for everybody's input
