    well after reading the instructions for a second time i found out the axle shock bolts are suppose to face the rear of the truck,not the ones on the xmember. :doah: so i cant use an existing hole. :doah: but what's a good tool to allign the axle mounts with the xmember mounts??

    I bet the install was pretty easy. Don't forget to cut off all that extra thread everywhere. Are you going to have to change shocks? They look too long in the pictures.

    hardest part was lining up the bottom mounts with the top.i'll probably end up buying new shox but that would be after i take it on a ramp or somthing to flex it out and see how much further it needs to go and if my drive line will clear the xmember.

    the rear end might be goin up some, im bout to switch the shackles around. this might give me an 1" but they'll probably still be too long.
