This is a pic of the aggressive... Slammed
This is a pretty accurate statement altho the mids are a 2-3 finger in the Rear on some depending on age of the truck from what I've seen.
The extremes are about 0 fingers you have to reach under to get a finger on top of a 22" wheel and 305/35/22
As far as alignment goes from what I've seen the OEM is as follows:
-1.8 to -0.9 and mids come back to -1.8 to -2.4 in almost all cases.
A bad alignment when I tell someone to find a new shop is greater than -2.4. Their is no way with almost 800 sets of mids sold and almost all by me and serviced my be anyone should be more than -2.4 on a Mid level.
Now lets look at -2.4 out of spec (Worse case on a Mid Level)
-2.4 is -0.6 out of spec. not much at all to be honest and this is worse case remember -1.8 to 2.2 is the most common I would say by 98% of people on a mid.
A Jeep before an alignment can be -1.7 to -1.9 I've even seen sheets -2.0 before a install of a spring.
With this ^ said their are quite a few OEM jeeps no drop springs that start with the 2.0 out measurement and if someone checks their alignment before a drop they will see this too. (I've been collecting this Data)
So if a truck before alignment is say 2.0 again Very common and you do a mid you get back to a -2.1 you are -0.1 out so yes your out but not far and certainly not a number to get stuck on or worry about.
People now get their sheet and see -2.1 out of Spec in RED!!!
Well they call me freaking out saying "I gotta fix this asap" I explain to them what I'm explaining to you all here above.
Adjustable arms to fix -0.1 is costly and not needed unless you want to create an overall great handling performing truck I would pass on Arms you don't really need them.
As mentioned on my Endlink post I rather undersell someone VS oversell them. I explain what is is their buying into rather than just take their money and let them find out later that they bought into something to fix -0.01 for 600+$.
Yes big coin for a minor adjustment that just wasn't needed IMO..
Hope all my numbers are correct above haa it's early and if someone finds a mistake point it out as I'm trying to Squeeze a long post in before I start my day LOL and if anyone ha any Questions Please feel free to call me I will be more than happy to explain all this over the phone for ya 239.691.7515
