Did you get the one with the 1 in block for the rear and the shocks? That's the one I have. And I have 20x9 with 33s and there is definitely room for 35s. That's what I will be purchasing soon.

I wanted the cali lean to my truck so I did not lift the rear any. Although it doesn't have much stance still.

Maybe. Checked everything. Only thing left is the three bolts on the factory strut that go into the spacer.... # fingers crossed lol

So the ball joint nut has a plastic piece inside the nut? How do you remove the nut then? Wondering for the future...

You can remove it with a wrench lol... Or heat it up for a second and it will come off easy. The nut is a nylock nut and the plastic helps to ensure the nut won't back off once installed. The nuts generally shouldn't be used again as the plastic is spread.

Saved myself the headache and had it professionally installed.. Labor to install a leveling kit is fairly inexpensive...
