    Or, just leave the drain plug on and drop a hose down in there to pump the fluid out through the fill hole.

    I switched to working on my bicycle tonight. Its getting more miles lately anyways.

    I'll keep hitting it with PB blaster along with occasional hammer wacks. Sleep on it and try again in a day or two.

    I was running 3 before the arms. Less and it felt squirrelly. @assassin10000 gave me the specs for the shop and called it. Said caster would be 4-6. It feels good. I haven’t got it up to speed yet though.

    if i can get 3.5 and zero camber i'd be in heaven. at 3 degrees ive got .7 degrees of camber. i cant adjust it out. i believe this is the limit of the access/reg cab lift height

    oof. thats alot of caster. probably more than im after. but going off what i see i think 3.5 is easily attainable for me with the cams almost centered.

    What upper arms are you running? I feel like the Camburg ones build a lot in, but I may be remembering wrong.

    It’s funny, I had the tires practically skipping when I put the things in. But the caster before and after alignment is pretty close to the same. I guess that’s fairly built in. Last alignment and before these lowers, I forgot to tell them to get to 3 deg so they put it at 1.5-2. Super loose on the highway.

    2.7-3 has been my sweet spot. 2.6 and bellow i rub and she gets a little loose. i think 3.5 is the best spot for me.

    I'll have to get back to you on that, not much drive time yet. Steering goes a bit tighter radius, I've never been one to hold lock, so it feels the same to me except it will go a little farther than I expect on a tight turn.

    Basically any rub? That’s all I’m worried about. I don’t like using my frame as a steering stop. It just leads to rust lol
