ok so i just finished swapping in a 8.8. i used the axle shims that came with my 4 inch rough country lift... i figured i would keep them on for some odd reason. i may have welded the spring perches at too much of an angle and my pinion angle may be off. let me know what you guys think. its a spring under lift... i get barely any axle wrap when taking off from a dead stop how it is set up now. its about the same as before when i had the dana 35 in. i also have a 1 inch transfer case drop on.. im thinking about taking it off and see if it helps any. let me know what you guys think.
