Its all good. I don't have any because I figured everyone knew what they looked like.

Now does anyone have any tips on adjusting them?

Even set to stock they just improved everything. My axle feels like it wants to stay under my truck now. The only problem that I had is I got up close and personal with my leaves and noticed that they are flat. Time for new ones.

I don't doubt it, up here on the steep mountain roads my backend goes all over the place on some of the sharp switch-backs. I need to get a set of these sometime. How hard was the install?

It was so easy. I don't know why I didn't install them earlier.

No adjustments needed. As long as you installed per the supplied instructions you should be good to go.

Loved mine on the 99'. As I'm switching the 8.8 out for a 9" I'll soon have them under the 07. Seems like the 07 is way more squirrely then the '99 ever was. Not sure why... just feels that way I guess.

Personally i would rather fork over for the long link ones instead and do the dual shock setup that always is a good idea too.
