Did I lower my front shock tower too much? Its no biggie-I can still use the stock position. I lowered it like 3mm!!!

My top set of camber link holes are perfectly in line with the stock bottom set of holes.

Just wanted to know as I dont have an actual dimension to go off of.
Ray it's perfect!! Roll it, it's where we have ours!

The bearing in the one-way is a 12x18 , and the diff. is a 10x15.

No. This shipment will not include the Carpet Spec Kits.

Ray,

The shock tower looks perfect. You can't use the lower holes now remember.

Well-yes-but a twist of the shock collar and you should be right back-up for ride height. As for leaning in the shocks a bit -you are right. But with four positions to choose form-you should be ok.

Perfect! Depending on what tire size you run, you might need to trim the shock end down an 1/8" or use AE spring retainers....

You also want to make sure some of the tower still stays in the slots on the bulkheads, will keep the tower from possibly flexing...
