    And had to raise front like inch. So front sway bar wont hit all speed bumbs etc. And its not even close, how low KW says you can lower it.
    But the rear end.... started to work again with that stuck lower shock bolt... nothing moves its solid. 6ft cheater bar, Big Milwaukee M18, heat, etc...
    Well time for angle grinder, die grinder and big ass crowbar.

    My dad and I figured out that the factory axle is about 3/4" too short, even at stock ride height. That's why these cars eat through inner boots. At stock height, the axle is at almost full extension, it should be at half or less than that. If it was longer then all of our lowered issues would likely be gone.

    Just get the lifetime Warranty axles from Advance. with the 25% off coupon.
    They are local = no wait, and they have no problem swapping used for new. Only had to replace the passenger 1 x in 2 years.
    they are not that hard to pop out and back in.
