ok so i just got done baggin the front and back of my 97 ext. noma. i'm about 3.5 inches from layin frame. right now i wanna make sure everything is good before i go farther. anyway, is there any geometry problems or something else i should worry about in the front. i'm only running 225/60/16 tire. as far as the back i know my pinion angle is off but i'm gonna redo that when i notch the back.

any help is great...thanks

Just check the toe one the front wheels, shouldn't be off (unless you really f'ed up) Have an alignment (once the rear is done too), and I would keep the driving to a minimum if your pinion angle is off

just have the front alignment checked there is no adjustments on the back of our trucks. i would also look at getting some lower pro tires it will set down a little further.

if its stock then that may be true but if you have a setup with adjustable lower bars then yes there is adjustments to be made.

correction u can align the rear because they do dog leg u loosen the u bolts and shift the axle yes they are pinned but they still move if u think ur a drag racer and u do hard launches

thanks for the help, i'm running sd cups and airlift bags upfront, gen 1 4-link airbar out back. 1/2 smc valves and 5/8 line. i also have a 5 gallon and viar 450 under my bed. my pinion angle is off by like 2-4 degrees max but i have a double cardian and two piece shaft so i figure it's not that bad. it is my daily driver but i don't go far

I'm not gonna lie to you, that sounds like a sweet setup for a 16 year old, I wish my truck had all that shiz when I was 16. I hope everything works out well for you :tup:

thanks i tried to do things right the first time around, i love hittin switches on people but i don't have very much play time. i'm thinkin about an edc or dc5000 with maybe a bigger bag up front so it takes less psi to raise up, whatta ya guys think?
