    If you’re gonna do the other work soon and don’t drive that far, I wouldn’t worry about it, just get it done once. If it may be awhile though, I’d get it done now and again later. 2 alignments are a lot cheaper than 2 tires

    So i just went on Mcgaughy's and i couldn't find anything for the 03 Yukon Denali under the category bar. I searched it manually in their site and all the prices say $0.00 and that checkout is currently unavailable. Are they fixing the website or are they not doing these ones anymore?

    So I'm still unable to do this free travel mod. My harbor freight sawsall isn't strong enough so my friend is gonna let me try a dewalt one. We'll see how that goes.

    I also can't get this sway bar figured out. I drilled the hole and moved it over 2 inches but it ends up hitting the shock in that location so I moved it back

    Yeah 2” would be too much. I didn’t measure but between 1-1.25 is what I did mine. You want to full assemble the bar on the truck with all the hardware loose and get it where it needs to sit. Then you can play with where that mount goes. You have wiggle room though, you shouldn’t need to move the mount again, just loosen it (and all the hardware) enough to push the bar back to the drivers side a little

    The thing is I can only move it from mounting on the left or right side of the sway bar endlinks. When I mount it on the left side it's stock and doesn' really bang on anything. But when I mount it on the right side which is recommended it touches the shock and a mount on the driver side

    Mount them on the right side and give it all a good shove. It’ll move. Use your foot if you need to lol

    Yup, basically. Just do it a little at first and increase the force till it moves a touch. Just needs a little persuasion
