I did scribe as instructed, but instead of cutting the sleeves rearward, I cut them (1/16") forward of the scribe marks, since it didn't really matter with the older design of these bushings (I also marked them L and R), so as long as they don't contact the rack bushings once installed (correct?).
Upon reinstalling the rack I noticed the driver's side sits a little forward than the passenger side. So I think I need to cut these sleeves exactly the same height (the amount of 1/16" was done so from my scribe marks)...common sense I guess
As a note, I took a feeler gauge between the rack and the k-member (stock) and it was snug at the passenger side with .024 but the driver's side with .047 still had a little room.
Of course, I come with pictures for your viewing pleasure! Any suggestions and opinions would be appreciated.
Well I still have some more material I can cut from those sleeves. As of right now they are not sitting flush with the k-member nor are they exactly the same height either. I guess those are my areas of improvement for right now.
