When you turn them down, you only turn them down enough, just for the DOM to slip over it I presume?

yes, you want to make it as snug as a fit as you can..... if you decide to turn them down the way zabeard did, you want to turn them down a few inches like he did for strength

For what it costs for one of those super lift things and all the plastic body lifts.. and how they look..

I don't know much about offroading or 4wd setups, but from the amount of strength and usefulness a Solid axle offers over the whimpy factory and super-kit setups.. It only makes sense.

Evan..

Going with coils Like Beard? Something tells me you 2 have been gabbin about this and its a conspiracy

are the rafters in your garage open. If so through a strap around one of the rafters and then wrap a strap around the axle and use your highlift as a hoist.
