    I honestly don't know. It doesn't seem like it from the ride quality.

    Any time.

    I notice now my front lip hits when going through dips or up slight inclines. I feel like a tuner car having to go at an angle to clear inclines or dips, haha.

    I think you're on to something with the wheel/tire combo. Unfortunately I don't plan to go any bigger than 18s at this time. Current stockers will be on for a while until I get my suspension squared the I'm planning on 18s

    I didn't think so, about the alignment. But thought I'd ask.

    I will check my shocks this weekend to be sure about the length.


    Thanks for the info, I'll check mine this weekend and see what they come out to be and go from there.


    Thanks a bunch
    I appreciate everyone's help

    If you don't have shock extenders in the rear you need some. The front fenders you can roll the inside lip pretty easy with a hammer just be careful not to do it so you see it on the outside.

    Yes sir, I do have the extenders. Though I'm not too fond of the DJM style. I'd prefer the Bell Tech but they are not compatible with the DJM link relocating kit.

    Can I use the ole baseball bat method?

    Does the inner liner move easily? I've never really looked at how they come out.

    The plastic liner comes out easy but the fender lip isn't like the older trucks. I used a small sledge hammer to gain a little more room.

    I have to get a picture next to my wife's Charger. It sits as low if not lower than hers :)

    I'm not affected by speed bumps but, certain spots of my route to work, I have to slow to almost a stop because my front valance will scrape. I think I'm going to have to trim it down some before it gets ripped off.
    I'll be back tomorrow with some more shots of it :)

    Here's a few shots.
    Didn't have a can for that popular shot so I used my 16' fatmax. Its just at 3-3/4" off the ground :)
    I think I'll have to go coil-overs out back to level it out. But, that'll have to wait as I'm in the beginning stages of redoing my rear all together. Coil-overs are in the plans though.

    It's been a long hard debate in the wheels department for me, haha.
    I'm going to end up with two sets because my end goal is to have this on an autocross course. That set will be 18s and I'd like to stick with 20s for daily use and store the 17s for back up. Even though I really like the Z28 reps. Not sure I'll be able to swing the big boys with this drop.

    I just don't know my friend, that's why I'm rockin the stockers :)
