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.
