Recently purchased a 2005 Sport 4.0 Auto with a factory D44. Quite happy with it so far after a few mild trail runs.
I'm trying to get a handle on what's been changed from stock so far. The PO or, more likely, the dealer I bought from painted all the suspension components black. Springs, shocks (including boots), just about everything. I've managed to remove enough paint to see the Rough Country logo on the shocks. With the 32" tires I think maybe it's the 2.5" spring lift, but with a few extras. It may be a little bit taller of a lift as there's still quite a bit of room above the 32s.
I was hoping some of you guys could take a look and tell me a little bit about what I've got here. I think the lower control arms are aftermarket, but not adjustable?
I believe it's a drop pitman arm? (I know, I've read here that may not be a good thing) No bump steer issue I've noticed, but the zerk at the bottom of the arm does barely contact the tie rod during flex.
Any specific measurement I can take to confirm that it's the 2.5" kit?
Do you think I could go to 33s? Maybe if I add a 1" BL?
Any other thoughts, observations, comments are welcome.
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the valuable info I've learned from lurking here the past few weeks.
