The new front suspension components arrived today..... Note the bends in the I-beams, these are to negate camber problems at alignment time after adding lift to the front suspension. This is actually how twin I-beam suspension systems were aligned in the old days up untill someone invented the cheater bushings. The problem with cheater bushings is they only allow for a limited amount of camber and caster adjustment. Meaning if you turn the bushing add more caster, you change camber in a negative manner at the same time. You cant adust one without adversley affecting the other. Not looking forward to crawling on the ground to install this, but im sure it will be worth it when im done. P.S...... the FOX shocks have been revalved for the Chinook so im hoping they out perform the Bilstiens that are currently on it. Oh, this kit will give approximately 3 inches of front lift once installed.
