ok so ive been hearing a "clunk" from the front end and i investigated today. first i noticed the drivers tire is kicked out and wearing on the inside. second i noticed the CST spindle is hitting the lower control arm (the gusset next to where the sway bar mounts) upon turning the wheels lock to lock. Anyone else have this issue? Is grinding a radius into that gussett my best bet?

I also notice a little clunk when driving, but nothing in the turns. Sounds almost like something might be lose. Going to try and take it in this weekend.

Yes, it is the steering stops. If you cut it, you'll get better turning radius too. I've had mine cut for a while now, with no problems.

Hey thanks! The truck looks great!

Though do you think this set up is better then going with say a CST 8" lift kit? It seems your truck is about the same height as a CST kit!

Eric :thumbsup:

The 8" kit requires cutting I believe, and has more parts to install. I would go with the 4" spindle and coilovers. Thanks for the compliments!

Give Greg at PRG a call and he can also recommend what to get.
