    Leaning.....

    I don't get it. My driver side is about 3/4 of an inch to 7/8 of an inch lower than the passenger side. Could it be my shocks? If so, can I just replace the shocks and keep the springs? Would Konis be ok? They are adjustable, so does that mean I can raise it a little to get clearance on my tires? I'm putting 275/35/18 on the rear, 245/40/18 up front. I don't want to roll my fender but I may have to. Also, I have negative camber on both sides in the rear...is that bad?

    The Konis are pretty good it will make it ride stiffer I can tell you that.
    On the leaning issue I've also heard of some getting springs installed upside down also and even not seated in the pocket correct.
    The tire issue I would NOT roll the lip but take a grinder and grind down the lip half way to gain clearence it will be needed for the 275's. Just feather the grinder back and forth so you don't create a bunch of heat in one spot.
    The negative camber is due to the IRS and yes it is normal.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Thanks for all the info. But I was wondering I'm going with the Pedders Drag Springs, should I go with the Pedders Big Bore Shocks or stick with the Konis?
