    Hello Folks, I finished my MAF SR install. All works fine and the suspension up front has improved as expected. However, I have started to notice my front drive shaft has extend out to far and is causing my joints to bind. How do I go around solving this issue? Spacers on the u-joint housings? ... any ideas.
    Thanks Rique

    Do you have any pics? I will be doing this next week when I receive my brake lines. Does it bind only when flexing or all the time when the hubs are locked in?

    hi, no pics yet but there is a post under my name with many SR pics. Do a search on my posts and you will find. It binds up hill in 3rd. Nothing to bad but still needs attention. Rique
