    How much lift do you have? I Don't know any shops around here that are competent. That was only shop nearby I have had positive experiences with. But with the original owner not running it anymore idk where else to go so was thinking the cams so that there's no excuses for it can't be done when I take it to another. It's got about an 1/8th inch of adjustment left as it is now.

    If you’re asking me, it’s a 6” ProComp.

    Sum Toe In (degrees): .1° ± .2°

    The spohn control arms and panhard bar finally got here today. One thing I got to say is they did an excessive job packaging and wrapping them. Took over 30 minutes to cut it all off. Which is a good thing most things I've ordered lately were barely wrapped and protected. The skyjacker c50r springs, rough country 6-7 inch lift rear shocks and crown extended stainless brake lines came last week so after I get motor back together I can spend a afternoon changing rear suspension.

    Finally got rear suspension mostly done skyjacker c50r springs and spohn control arms and panhard on. just gotta do brake lines still. It got dark on me so will have to wait till tomorrow to get lift measurements and finished pictures. It gets it annual undercoating tomorrow morning. I also got to get washers to put on control arm and panhard bolts. It seems to weave more now so definitely gotta put front sway bar on. Hopefully that will be good enough if not I will probably get hellwig sways soon. Definitely a lot more suspension travel with the spohn control arms. Original control arms barely allowed enough down travel to get c25r springs on and off new control arms can let axle droop enough for the c50r to have alot of room to go in. The rear sway bar links stops suspension droop before shocks or panhard. I want to figure out how to measure how much travel it has now.

    @87carl I guess the 2007 Jeep JK front sway bar links will fit the back of our tahoes so if you are still running factory rear sway bar links I would look into getting some JK links made for like 4 inches of lift.
