Hmm..Other than measuring i'm not sure. They do all come with the hole for the speed sensor. If you want, tomorrow I could measure the distance from the spindle snout to the brake caliper bracket holes on my buddies stock '98 spindles.

I could feel a little difference after I installed my underdrive crank pulley and overdrive alt pulley, in my opinion they are worth the money and I think others would agree.

I don't have any updates yet I still need to get my wheels and tires I'm going to be installing my spindles and putting my truck back to stock with shackles in the back, hopefully within a week. Then I will install my bodylift when I get my wheels and tires.

Nice wheels!!! I can't imagine why I would say that though... :D my 15x10's are wonderful. Make sure you keep a coat of wax on them, even though they are clearcoated, it's a thin layer and sitting water, salt, etc... can eat away. Mine are a little over a year old and are chipping in spots because I didn't maintain them.

Thanks, your truck helped me decide on them, I really wanted to go with the 15x10s but Im a stepside and they would stick out too far. Thanks for the heads up on the wax.

This morning went good, this afternoon I ran into a problem.

My rear leaf spring bolts are seized in my bushings, I got them out but my bushings are not in good shape so I ordered poly ones, so Im at a stand still.

Here are some pics from this morning.











Shocks Are in now, I put them in after the pics

Tires should be here Thursday , so they will be going on next weekend with the body lift

Updated pics

The rear is still lower than the front, I would have thought it would be closer to level?
I left my lift shackles in from my lowering kit, Ill have to check tomorrow, but I think my shocks are holding the rear down, but Im not sure, they are stock length shocks. If they are holding it down, I think Im going to get some 4wd length shocks.







Here is a picture of my truck next to a 04 FX4, at a dealer down the road

I got my tires mounted on my wheels today, I also test fitted them on my truck to just see what they looked like, they fit with no rubbing right now, but I think it still need the 3 inch body lift to look right. there is not enough room in the fenders. Ill post pictures tomorrow.

Sweet too bad I missed this thread earlier but you seemed to have made the right decisions without my advice. Everything you are doing I have on my truck pretty much. I also have 4wd shocks and my truck sits level so you may want to change that.

Great minds think alike. You have the tires I just got and the wheels I used to have.

Looks awesome!
