I didn't mean the hassle of doing the work. I meant the effects of it on ride quality.

Andrew, I'm sure you're going through a lot, but taking pictures would probably take 5 minutes TOPS... just turn the wheel all the way one way, and snap a few. Come on man, people are frothing at the bit here =P

OK, so what your saying is, they did the spindle flip on your truck and you had 20" KMC's on it and it rode really nice. Then, three days later they did the spindle flip on your truck and had all kinds of problems. As long as I'm understanding you correctly, you totally contradicted yourself. How were you riding on your newly lowered explorer and everything was perfect with the ride one day and then three days later it was in the shop to get lowered with problems?

One thing would solve this debate other than pictures.. a name and number of the shop that did the work.

I think Doug is on to something here. If we call them and tell them that there are 25 guys here that want to have them do the work up and all.

andrew... do you understand how badly people want pictures? Is it really that big of a deal to go out and take ONE picture? I'm just asking for one... 20 would be ideal, but I could live with just ONE!!!! =P

If you can't take a pic, just post the number of the shop. That shouldn't be hard.

Hey don't get mad at me. You (andrew) started started a snowball effect and disturbed the herd. Hell, it even has me intrigued. And since you won't help us out, then we're trying to help out one another.

-Justin

PS - What would happen if you shortened the lower arm? Would that throw the suspension geometry out of whack? And like Hartman said (I think it was Hartman), why not just bend the bottom arm flat, then re-harden the steel? Or you could weld on a peice underneath to strengthen it back up?
