How much of the bump stop do I need to cut off the rear? Using a single 8mm spacer to put me around 31.5~ at the front, plan to be around the same at the rear.

Need some more help, got them installed with a 8mm spacer on each side. Driver side sits @ 31.5, passenger side sits @ 30.5 and when I went to test drive it I hit a small bump and it made a loud ass noise.

I still didn't bring the back down but that shouldn't effect it should it? Both sides at the back are sitting at 33"

the rear will affect the heights on the front a bit...

lowering the drivers rear will raise the pass front a little

lowering the pass rear will raise the drivers front a little...

you might have to play with it a lil bit to get it dead on... i wouldnt change spacers just yet... get it leveled out...

the front will never be dead on... im about 1/8'' off side to side in front... and dead on in the rear...

This is how mine is as well. I have tried and tried to get it equal front and rear. I have the rear even and still sit lower on one of the front.

im going to play around with mine tonight a bit... try to raise the pass rear about 1/4 inch to put more air in the bag to pre load the thing and keep it from twisting up so hard on launch.

Thanks for the help guys, I'm going to give this another shot tomorrow.

I'm also going to need an alignment really bad, front wheels are caving in at the top pretty bad.

After a few hours I finally got this pig to lower. I guess I had them turned TOO MUCH. Sitting @ 30.5 in the back right now, going to try to get it to 31.5.

Front is sitting at about 30.75, why is it so low? IIRC 1 8mm spacer should put me 31.25 to 31.5. Should I add another spacer so I can have the truck properly aligned?

That's where mine sits with the 8mm spacers, except 30.75 passenger 31 driver.
You AWD? I hope I can get a proper alignment like this.
