Default What do you guys think of this A Arm angle?

The first picture is how it sits now,
The second is how i want it to sit,
And the third is how bad ass my truck would look if i could achieve this!

You guys think thats too extreme? Im pretty sure stock keys wont crank enough for me, but i dont know for sure because one of the bolts is busted, and i went to ford...they didnt have it so i did some searching and STL posted what type of bolt is needed in some thread on here and i went and got it from AA parts but it doesnt look near long enough compared to the other one. And either way i cant get a drill to go through it. But thats besides the point.

The way it measures now from ground to center flare in front is 34 1/4. Rear is 37. So i need 2 3/4 inches of lift in the front. In the picture its 37 all around. If i got keys and cranked to that what would happen? My front end would fall out in a year right?

How much more down travel is there? Are your CV's binding yet? Turn the steering wheel and spin the wheel, see if it makes any noise.

Also, There is no need to keep bumping your thread if there are no responses in 2 hours. Please be patient and people will respond.

Sorry, i was just going off how many people viewed it. And i just had it jacked up to the height id like it to be at, i dont know if i will be able to spin the wheels with it like that cause theyre still touching i believe. How can i check the down travel?
