    If you have stock shackles and bolts in the front springs, you've probably pushed them to their limits. My old stock shackles parallelogramed on my after some nonsense like that once.

    I did that once, and I'd say it just depends on how it landed...

    Yeah, I saw your avatar and it reminded me of what my truck used to look like. It was unintentional on my part though. The front fenders were new replacements (black primer) and the rear half of the truck i had just grafted on before that pic was taken. The rear half was a very dark metallic blue.

    Shortly before that pic I had been running 35 x 12.5 x 16.5's on stock steel rims with hubcaps. With that combo it looked even more like a 'department' truck. :haha:

    Not long after that pic I killed the passenger door, and the replacement I found was baby blue. That was all the incentive I needed to paint the whole thing flat black.

    Ok

    Well I cleaned the truck up real good today and overlooked what I could see and it everything seems to be alright.:waytogo:

    It still drives fine, I really don't notice anything different while driving or hear any wierd noises so hopefully all is good

    Also I needed an alignment but today it seemed to drive a little straighter than before....hmmmm...:D
