Thumbs up Re: 17 inch wheels

Well to be honest about the wheels. 17" wheels are the odd balls now days. Not to say they don't look good but finding good tires for them sucks. They just don't make that many tires that look good and handle the performance we all want.
I think you will be much happier with 18" are 20" wheels and tires. No worries at all with disc brakes either.
As far as the front hubs it's a 30 minute fix for them.

It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
