I found out how much I need to trim

Went to go mess around and kind of got myself in a bind for a moment then got it flexed out.

climbed the hill then backed into this situation. just a little high centered

No don't rub up front and don't rub on the driver side rear. Just the passenger side rear.

yeah I don't know why. No swaybars, new shocks, #1 t-bars, and a lot of weight on the front end to compress it I guess.
