Looking good did u use the same camber bushings?

or change em out for the 2 deg ones.....

oh ya u might want to lose the d35 knuckles and out in favor of 44 knuckles and outers

d35 are infamous for bearing issues with real tires on em...

i got the axle off jakerngr and im pretty sure thy are different camber bushings... but he had a 2'' coil spacer... i just have not done that yet.

02-09-2007, 05:46 PM

Holy cripes, that's a big explorer. There was one in town for sale at a local dealer....it must had a 3" body and 6" Susp.....on 33's with stock rims, it looked pretty gross.
