did you crank both bolts all they way in? one is longer than the other so it would be uneven if you did. keep an eye on your balljoints too wtih a full crank

first you should never bottom the bolts against the keys, now you have no down travel and are pulling the upper balljoints out of there sockets.
second you need to loosen the upper arm to frame bolts (2 on each side) "before" adjusting ride height, then tighten after adjustment is made with truck on the ground.

I'm not bashing you for that. We already proved both rights / wrongs from totally different perspectives of this Mod.

Seriously? I mean, I agree with you on most aspects of where your coming from. I am not going to completely dissagree because honestly I have not tried what you have said needs to be done. When I cage this truck and buy a new one I will definately try exactly how you do it.
