Just finished the install of a Readylift SST 2.5" leveling kit (part # 66-2515, the one with
the track bar relocation bracket and carrier bearing spacer). The job went pretty smoothly and the truck drives great and tracks straight now that I'm complete. Nothing binds, nothing is loose, drives just like it did before.
I have two questions, probably just me being anal, but some differences I "think" I noted now that the install is done. The installation is pretty simple; hard to screw anything up if you've got the springs indexed in correctly I would imagine, but just to be sure...
1. Although the kit has the track bar relocation bracket, my axle seems to be pulled about 1/4" - 1/2" to the driver's side when viewed from underneath. The gap between the spring and the frame is only about 1/2" on the passenger side, while it's right around 1" on the driver's side. You can tell that the bump stops are lined up a little bit differently on the axle now as well. When looking at the truck from the front, neither of the tires appears to "stick out" more than the other.
2. The shock and spring don't seem to line up parallel with the spring/shock mount on either side any longer. They're off by a slight angle. I seem to remember both running parallel with the vertical edges of the spring/shock mount before the kit was installed.
Anything to be concerned about?
