It looks like your camber is off (wheels lean in at the top)

I have the mcg spindles, and it increased my front track width by about 1-1.25" or .5-.6" on each side. I posted exactly what it was in another thread but can't remember now.

here are before/after pics of my truck. It's slightly different angles, but I asked my gf to snap some pics when she took it down to the shop to have the kit installed.

Good eye, I explain that in another post but its exactly one degree negative on both sides (intentional) if I didnt do that my factory tires would have smashed my fenders. Its not my everyday driver so tire wear is not an issue altho I have not seen any abnormal wear...

When you go lower than the spindle drop 2 inches the control arms are both at a different angle than stock on my application the 2 additional inches of drop in the front pulled the wheels in a little.. I anticipated this but had a backup plan if I couldnt get the wheels pulled in my plan was to slot the upper control arm mounts and adjust the lower arms in as much as they would go. But my alignment guy here at the dealership was able to make it work.. P.S. I have been running Mcgaughys spindles for years now.. This is my second set..

Back to original topic. Everyone that has/will be getting a BT kit, call them up and ask what's up with the panhard relocator?

back to the original topic, I emailed belltech regarding the panhard and a technical advisor replied me with that they are testing the relocator brackets as we speak. That they will be ready for individual purchase and included in the kits in the next coming months.

The must have git with McGaughey's and asked about it lol I have the Belltech kit and love it but I bought the Spohn Performance adjustable panhard bar and you can definitely tell it made a difference. That weird bounce going over the bridge is gone and the tires fit in the fenders right

I just received my 964sp kit a few days back for my 2012 RT from Jegs and it came complete with end links minus the pan hard bracket so I E-mailed BT and they were suppose to have shipped the bracket heading to my house as of today so I estimate it getting to my door step by Tuesday next week I will keep you guys posted on the status of the bracket and take before pics before it goes on my truck.
