Well have a couple things to knock off the list of to do’s. Let’s start with the tie rod. The stock rod was as crooked as a Hillary[emoji23]. Sorry but I could resist. Once installed. Steering tightened up significantly. However I still need to get it aligned. The rod ends are much larger than stock, as well as the rod itself.
First off. Sorry I didn’t respond sooner. I just over looked your post. It was ok. I honestly got tired of not being able to use my windshield whippers to clean my windows and moved it to the rear. Other than that I never had any issues. Really wasn’t in my way. If the dang thing wouldn’t block the sprayers on the hood, it would still be there.
Overall the install went really smooth. Honestly removing the old parts was the toughest. Had the upper front shock bolt break off while removing. Also, had the welded nut for the bar pin snap off. Thinking it was a poor weld. Doing this on the ground was challenging. Having a lift will make this much easier.
I have to give it to you guys that do this type of work everyday. It’s tough. My fat ass was wore out when finished....and I’m still sore. Lol
Feels great now. The drive to the alignment shop was a little wonky. Honestly it drives really well. Much stiffer than the stock suspension. There is less body roll...which made me realize how horrible the stock suspension was. So far I’m really impressed with how well the Rocksports do on road. They soak up the bumps in the road like a sponge.
It will be a couple weeks before I get to flex it. Waiting on drivelines and fenders.
