I don't know about you but for an extra $100 or so it's not worth my time to do something that I could have fixed earlier. Any time I tear apart a front suspension I always put the bolts back to the marks on the arms from the original install.
According to Tony from BellTech the DJM 3in arms will give a 3.5in drop so that's where I got my numbers from. Whatever it is it looks good but is too low for me, lol. Tired of the clearance issues.
As far as the alignment holes placement, I'm not sure I'll be able to find where the original marks were now that I'll be putting in factory arms.
I'm learning as I go/install that's why I'm here asking questions.
