    measure from the top of the wheel to the outside of the fender and that sould get you good

    treat stressful situation like a dog. if you can't eat or hump it, then piss on it and walk away.

    you are right you dont have to but your rearend isnt centerd from the factory so when you lower it, it just gets worse. and ajustabil pan rod is alway a good idea.

    Yes you just want to re-centre the rear end.

    You can measure it a number of ways but mostly can tell by 'eye' if it is close or not.
