It all went together really well. Did it by myself in 6 hours...
Install for the spacers was a breeze. The Ball joint took a bit of thinking...used a breaker bar to apply pressure to the fitting then wacked the arm a couple times and right apart. With the Deavers the biggest pain is in the clamping..I used 2 threaded and 2 bar clamps and it went together real easy. 2 Jacks are a must! There is still a stock amount of rake that I'm not thrilled with, but the look is 100% better...
Gotta find some UCA's now...speed bumps suck!
After pics only..we all know what they look like stock!

Man I am planning on doing the same thing to my LWB cc except with the prg 3" spacer up front. Looks great.

What size tires are you running with that?

I would recommend you get the UCA's as well with the 3" spacers unless you like the sound of metal clunking

Yea! that reminds me...
I replaced the factory Bumpstop with that cone shaped one but there were also 2 "Button" type bump stops in the box that PRG sent...where the heck does that thing go?

It goes on the underside of the upper A arm and helps cushion the impact if/when the A arm contacts the coil bucket. You can do a search on here, but its pretty straight foreward to install. You just need to enlarge a preexisting outer most hole in the arm and slide in the bump stop and secure with the nut. However, the nut can be a biatch and you have to get creative to get it on. It would have probably been easier to do it when everything is apart :)

How do you like the tires? I almost went with those but I couldnt tear myself away from the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, plust they were in stock.

Just had a 500 mile journey from Boise to the Nevada Desert.
No noise except on a few sections of fresh asphalt.
They offer a pleasent ride, not to stiff.
I got hooked into a few ruts on the highway and that was concerning..
Over the dust and brush of the desert it was like being on pavement.
There was a bed of thick gravel on the job site that I had to be in 4wd last time (on stockers) but this time in/out in 2wd no effort.
Duratracs are still on my top of the list but were 250 more and I do more highway than off road so I compromised....

Na,do it right. Just get coilovers. That would be cheaper then adding a spacer and a control arm. Plus you would be actually improving your suspension travel.

You can have coilovers made for stock control arm ones made for after-market control arm. The ones made for after-market control get even more travel.
