About damn time!! lol You'll like the way the rear doesn't hop so much. When I get some time I'll go down to the off-road shop and have a relocation bracket fabbed for the panhard bar to correct the wheels sticking out. McG won't sell just the bracket from their kit .

I just bought and installed the BellTech 2/4 drop on a 2011 QuadCab 2WD, went to go get an alignment and the tech said he could not get the front even close to stock. States that the upper control arm is maxed out and there is no room to adjust. The upper control arm looks like it is going up at about a 30 degree angle. This kit is a pain to install (I think at least). I have called BellTech (KW suspension) they are looking into it and will get back to me...
The over all appearance looks good and level but a little lower than I wanted. At this point I wish I would have gone with a different kit. I would stay away from this kit. I did get the rear sway bar links in my kit.

Quick update, the techs at BellTech (KW) have a truck coming in to do some more R&D on (I don't know the time frame). Took my truck to another place that does alignments only, they got my camber very close to factory. Took my truck back to CHRISTIAN BROTHERS (They were supposed to refund my money since they didn't do really anything to correct my alignment, they said since it is still off just a little they won't refund my money. Don't ever go here they are worthless!!) they stated since my camber was -0.1 degree off they wont refund my money even though they were not able to correct any of my alignment issues and that now my toe is off and that will cause me worse tire wear than what they did. What a headache! Truck feels better, nice and straight driving a little stiffer when driving and hitting potholes/small bumps. Overall I am pretty happy with the kit, I will just have to see how my tires wear and go from there.

Sorry to hear about your experience with Christian Brothers shop, sounds like they're a bunch of idiots who want your money and are making shit up to make you feel bad or something. Tire wear is pretty good, tires are wearing evenly for the most part. I only say most part because the hard tire wear on the edges of the front tires, its all my fault lol I have a bad habit of attacking corners
