Man that really looks sharp. It makes me want to drop mine instead of just leveling out the rear.

57hemisport - do have any idea where we can get an adjustable track bar for our trucks? how does your rear axle center up after the 4" drop? here are a couple of pics to see how it centers up.

My axle did shift to the passenger side but not to much. About a 1/4". This is just with a 3" drop. It will move more with a 4" and even more with a 5" drop. To center it back to place we can do 2 things, an new panhard mount like the one supplied by mcgaughys but with more bolt holes to adjust for 2-5" of drop or an adjustable panhard bar. The problem is nobody makes one.

1/4" isn't too much but with the tires already right at the edge I'd like to center it back up when I do mine. I'm going to track something down that we can use and I'll do a quick write up when I get it figured out. thanks for the updates.

As for rims I would say the biggest without rubbing would be 24". 26" with very little rubbing. The factory tires are big 33" and they barely rub on the drivers side at full clock. Nothing major just touches the fender liner.

Im definately going with 22" with 305 45 in the near future. My first choice will be the new 22" RT(if I can find em') If not iIm going with 22" srt chrome replicas. I just hope the ride wont be too negatively affected.
