    Installed the passenger side deaver today. Wish I had known I had to remove the driver side shock and u-bolts before I started. I was scratching my head wondering how I was going to get those perches lined up in the leaf pack...

    You don't have to remove the shock or ubolts on the driver side to install the passenger side. There is an RPG video on how to swap out the leaf springs.

    I watched it. I swear I couldn’t get those centering posts lined up till I loosened the other side. Maybe I just couldn’t get the truck high enough.

    Lucky for you they welded the plate that has the hole for the spare tire on the right side. On mine they had the plate on backwards and welded it that way. Place that installed it didn’t catch it and of course Rogue Q&A didn’t either. I had to remove the bumper to get my spare out. We drilled a new hole on the right side and used plastic on a swivel pin to cover the hole. I cannot lock the hole with a key anymore is the only drawback and two holes now in the bumper. I would agree, Rogue used to be awesome and I even gave them a great review once in the vendor section but things have changed and its spiraling down hill fast in the last year. I do not anticipate they will be around much longer and will be focusing their business to their other company, 4thetruck. I am seriously debating about taking both my Rogue bumpers off and putting on another brand.

    Put the 37’s back on. Found my driver side tie rod was very loose on the Camburg clevis. Disassembled that, used red locite and got it fixed. Cleaned all the grease from the ripped CV boot that was everywhere

    And it looks like my front diff is leaking
