Suppose it depends on the intended use and how high you go. Your probably correct, castor correction is a big item. Especially if driving across the country and on your own at college. Good point, I got the SLEE original tube arms and honestly have no idea if they corrected the angle with them or not and wasn't thinking about using the OEM arms. I do know it can be a handful at times on the highway so likely not the correct castor but I could live with it and never had it checked.Is this true? Don’t intend to question you but since I’m on this very same fence about to pull the trigger on a set of tires and a dobinsons lift (1.75 vs 3inxh flexicoils) I’ve been doing some research.
I’ve read that castor is the #1 important thing to adjust, along with DS angle 2nd, and rear panhard lift bracket coming in as 3rd most important. Interested to hear why you think Panhards take precedence over castor, might just pay for my lift and not buy the plates or DC DS...
Not sure I agree on the front DC with +3 or less, I never had an issue with a 3.5" lift up front but fought rear vibration at highway speed many times until I got the upper rear arms.
Ultimately throwing on 33's is more likely a simple item to achieve over just assuming you can just throw on 35's and drive it. I would do alot of homework here before doing either honestly, You will get alot of opinion but ultimately make sure to research what is right for you.
The Panhard align your axle from side to side and also you may get rubbing at higher speeds, Possibly not an issue not to address immediately but it was important to me and addressed it fairly quick because I had more rubbing issues and didn't like the offset wheel look.
Back in 2000, there wasnt alot of options out there and I had to do it piece by piece but now a whole different story, Either way if me and a daily driver I would chose a lift and call around and ask based on budget and make sure to look at a few options. If not a daily driver you can certainly go a little at a time.
