Installed the same kit on my 07 , your CVS are angled way too much, as for spindles contacting the spring, did you put the strut extensions on the right way? My spindles don't look curved like yours are.

Definitely put the bilsteins down and then try that. That should fix your cv angle and hopefully the shuddering.. As for the knuckle hitting the spring, mine doesnt come close, and I double checked, my knuckle is curved like yours. Id check to make sure you put the the strut extensions that go on the top of your strut the right way. They are slanted, and should only be installed the right way.

Talked with Marty and Dany over at RCX and they both said drop the bilsteins down too. I think this is causing me to contact the springs because it is pulling the upper arm all the way down. And once I get an alignment I think this will give me more clearance from the spring too.

Thanks for the help guys I owe ya! And special thanks to Andrew over at Bullys.. im he's tired of my crap haha
I'll keep ya posted on the results!!

Worked on my truck last night and adjusted my struts. Drove her this morning and.... she rides like black beauty haha so lesson to everybody else plan on buying new lower control arms and don't crank your Bilsteins all the way. Get tires on Monday and will start a new thread. Thanks to every one who helped me out!!

Zach, that's amazing!
What did you set them too?

As for maxing the Bilsteins, I rarely recommend it as Some trucks can handle it and some can't.
I'd always set them to the middle or second highest setting

But once again, glad it worked out

Can't wait to see the wheels on
