hey folks,
I did the washer lift today.

I stacked 3 washers for a total of about 3/4 inch lift. it's great, just what I needed. I don't have a sway bar on my truck so I didn't need to disconnect that. I didn't disconnect the shock either, nor did I remove the caliper. I just got some spring compressors and used a jack under thewheel to jack it up and down to remove the parts and add the washers. it was pretty simple except I didn't have a spring compressor at first and I couldn't remove the caliper because I don't have those clips to put it back on, and for the other side my large ratchet driver broke and I temp fixed it but I'm gonna get it warrantied later.

but it's all good and it worked out perfectly, now I need an alignment pretty bad...just for camber it looks like....

thanks for the help guys.

will do, but I might leave it for a bit until I get stud extentions and add another half inch to it because I'm going to get 4x4 blocks for the rear. plus alignments are expensive and I don't want to do 2 or 3 anytime soon

how do you figure out what degree camber bushings you need to get based on your lift height? Anyone Know?

the +/- 3 degrees will work cause if you go over 2" of lift(leveling kit) you have to get lift brackets. those bushings will just let ya get it aligned better after ya lift it.

i know you have already done this lift. but if you dont like this lift down the road you can go to a junk yard and grab some e150 or f150 coils and get about 2.5 to 3 in of lift thats what i did on my 97
