    i ordered some zero rates on sat. they should be here tomorrow. with the zero-rates i should have 7" of lift. The reason why i bought this is because i dont want to have to trim the fenders. i currently have a 6" lifted suburban and some 37x13.5r18 nitto mud grapplers that are having a hard time fitting with 4.5" of bs. so....
    should i only use the the zero-rates to lift the truck? i.e. no moving of the axle forward or backward

    should i use them to lift it and move the front axle forward and keep the rear the same?

    or any other type of set up.... i also have a three inch body lift i might put on... i was going to put it on this weekend but i had some diffuculties with me rig.. damn dual shock mounts.:o so any input would be great... also, im getting my driveshafts lengthened this sat. so what should i have to measure. the front is already about 2" to short for the transfer case... the rear is sticking out of the transfer case about 3.5" so any input on driveshaft lengthening would be great.

    also for pinion angle... would this mess it up alot or a little.... do i need a t-case drop kit for a better angle?:confused: :confused:

    move the front axle forward

    remove the dual shocks

    is the rear a flip? if it is push the axle back itll recenter it in the wheel well.

    As for angles go to home depot and get an angle finder.

    the d shaft shop will tell you how to measure for em.
