Got one endlink in at shorter sise (other followed suite) so hope all is good, does this look like a lot of preload on the sway bar though?

looks good, test drive with both windows down and take some hard turns. no clunks then youre good. Just make sure you have the end links bolted on tight onto the sway and tab.

what are your guys suggested dampening levels? I have mine at 2 clicks before 1/2 way point in front and 4 clicks before 1/2 way point in the rear. Thinking of going a bit softer

I wouldn't suggest much if any negative camber to be added considering it's really not needed in your case. If you are just make sure its very little and make sure you toe is in spec

This is all personal preference as of now I am running a little stiffer then you maybe 3 clicks from the middle setting . But that is with me in winter running winter tires and 17" winter rims. When I run my summer set ups as I told you I am basically as stiff as they can be

I did rub a bit with stock maxed out camber? Are you 3 clicks from the middle towards soft or hard?

3 clicks harder from the middle, but remeber I am used to running it alot stiffer so that feels soft to me

Your saying yopu rubbed a bit stock maxed out camber in the rear? Thats like 3.5 or so I don't see how you would need that much with your current set up considering I only ran about 2 with mine

Oh when you said you max camber I was assuming it was max stock setting camber which is about 3.5. Don't file down shit, 1.0-1.5 of negative camber in the rear will be fine and will fix the rubbing

Rears never have rubbed, he thinks my front rim is rubbing on the strutt....possibly due to un-true rim.
