At home you can do it with boards. It is a little bit trickier to get to the bolts, but it is doable and it works.

(2) 2x12x36
(4) 2x12x12

You will be able to drive up in steps and the wheels will be evenly loaded. In the shop and at home we have these boards cover in truck bedliner. You can keep them clean and they don't slip. You can use 8 or 10" boards to cut costs, but you get the idea.

Timing the bushes is the difference between doing a half axxed job and doing it right.

All of the shops that I've dealt with here don't want a customers input on anything.

And I suppose it must be a pain when a know it all customer tries to tell you how to do your stuff, but it sucks when they just 'tune you out' as a potential pain in theri ass, when there are times when we might know something.

You can tell the difference afterwards, it removes that "spring board" feel!!



:thumbsup:

I"m gonna do it on mine, but I'll just use my wood ramps here at home to tighten them before I go to the alignment shop. IF I find a shop that can do an alignment. They've all run from it in the past.

OK

Fronts 64.8 CM

Rears 66.5 CM

And they are exactly the same on both sides.. I did not adjust the ride height at all.. They are set as they came from the factory.

Not that it affects ride height, but, we put the preload on the rears at 5mm and about 3 mm up front. I shot some video of how to set the preload on the rears, same process as the fronts.


Alignment,

Jerry Hamm here in Jax has a real good Corvette/Camaro Tech named Mike.

After I asked him to time the bushings he said no problem. In fact he said... I'm glad you asked me to do that it makes perfect sense....

I didn't ask him for any custom alignment, especially since I'm about to drive 4K miles here in a couple weeks... But they're gonna take care of me.

:thumbsup:
