    Not yet. I'm holding off on getting my wheels widened right now. Leaning towards the toyo drag radials. Let me know how yours handle the corners when you get some miles on them

    Yeah anyone know if adjusting about 4to rockers could cause erratic idle issues? Every stop light i went to it stalled out and it never did it before i went to the machinist... @84Ttop @Sharad @RacEoHolic330

    If they aren't adjusted properly then all sorts of bad things could happen. Just checking compression could tell you if you have some rocker adjusted too tight. What else did the guy change and why did he only bad just a few of them?

    I'm running 17x9 03/04 chrome Terminator wheels, 255/40/17 up front and 275/40/17 out back. No rubbing.

    Just a thought

    Uhm it's been on the trailer because I've been to lazy I found I definitely have a bad lifter though and that's where the ticking is coming from it just sucks because I read after I had the machinist re do the rockers and he never used a torque wrench so I'm kinda upset about the situation now but I need to get that one lifter replaced but I'm gonna go ahead and replace all of them

    Yeah I read not none to good really but I'm livid about it but he's not doing anything about it typical with an engine builder he blamed me on it saying that I didn't break it in right but I remember him telling me he did that prior to handing it over to me
