All the parts should be arriving within the week and since I'm over seas right now I just need to find a reputable shop to install the kit for me since I'd rather not mess it up! Any East coaster's have any recommendations?
Glad to hear you got a better deal. I was just going to order a few things from Bag Riders, ill keep Rali in mind when I call. To be honest, if you installed coilovers and have a little DIY in yah, you could install the whole kit yourself. It would save you ALOT of money. Biggest thing is running wires and airlines and knowing what to tap into.

Yeah I talked with Rali through email then Taylor on the phone, both cool dudes. Ive installed a lot of coilovers so installing the struts aren't a worry, the electrical is what is going to be tricky for me so, we'll see when I get home from Afghan!

Electrical is not as tricky as you think. But, best of luck out there, stay safe and a safe return home. Thank you for serving our country.

Before and after picture of my hammering efforts, made a big difference but not quite where I want to be. sorry for the crappy first pic.

I hope not, if anything I'll have a shop install it and I'll ask if I can stand by and watch (without being that annoying customer) ! Thank you, less than 2 months left!

So here is how we sit now...added the Megan rear camber arms and set them to full negative, added the SPC front ball joints and set them to full negative...cut the front bumper tab off, trimmed some of the excess metal around that bracket, and trimmed some of the rear bumper...then I lowered the air bag perch another 2 inches (still have 2.25 inches lower to go ) and you can see the results...

Only issue now is the front doesn't go nearly as low as the rear, which is to be expected, but just not by this much...the front UCA is hitting the top of the inner fender well, and I know others are having the same issue, so now I get to join that club

Here are some iphone pics from yesterday...

looking good quick , welcome to the club! Im going to tackle that bumper tab today or tomorrow. I think thats whats stopping my fronts to drop a little more since I hammered out the fenderwell. Whats your front specs on the wheels? just wondering if I should go 215 in the front instead of the 225

^^ I guess we are doing our front backwords, lol...I did the bumper tab and then trimmed some of the excess metal under the front bumper corner bracket to provide extra clearance if needed, as I thought it was this keeping me from dropping more in the front...then to my surprise, it dropped maybe another 1/4 inch and then the UCA hit the top of the fender. At least I don't have to hear the rubbing anymore, I even put the stocks back on and can drive down all the way without rubbing...I just can't turn, lol

To answer your question, I am running a 19x9.5 +22 in the front with a 225 tire...but the tire is not my issue now, it is the UCA, which is my next battle...

got a question for the peeps running air for winter.. cuz that's what I want to do once I pick up a set.

I'm going to use 18s (the oem F sport rims) for winter and my 19s for summer. Guys see anything I should put into consideration for this setup?
