Get those AirLift 1000 bags from Summit for 67 bucks. When you'll have large loads, pump some air in them. Plus, they're a help at the track too. [img]smile.gif[/img] I've got them in my car, they were REALLY easy to install...

Having extended control arms and being lowered, the driveline will rub. The airlift bags will help, but I would try to figure out how to either extend the bump stops or something.
Dont let it keep rubbing, or you will be buying a new drive shaft soon.

I agree with (toomanytoyz)Bill. I have had them in my ride for more than a year and all is good.
