Great post, although it went right over my head in some respects as to how you did it, it was/is a good write up.
I have used the Willy G option at the local dealership here when I was getting resistance to fixing my warped rotors.

i have the same concerns about the dealership. the service writers could care less about prompt courtious service and the kids working in the shop do not have enough foresight not to pierce their ears with giant hoops that look more like deer whistles than jewelry. yeah - i'll put my life in your hands
Deer whistles. Thats a good one.

Wish I lived closer to you, I'd damn sure commission you to do the same to mine. That is if you would take it on.

WOW....................................Thanks

That's what it takes, but I guarantee ya, you'll love the results!

And I did take pics, but they came out crap so I'll take some of the install and re-alignment with my good camera when the kit comes in.....if you want to see the man himself, head on over to Glide Pro Stability..... and I am NOT affiliated with them in any way shape or form, other than soon to be a happy and satisfied customer! As I said, I'm already ecstatic that I don't have to carry around that two pound sack of *^%# any more!!!
Did you ever get your Glide Pro kit installed? What about the pics? I can't seem to grasp the concept of where to put the standoffs and what the lasers are doing. How did you get the front axle to 90*?

Explain it to me like I'm a 9 year old.....lol

Watched the video. Good stuff. Plan on doing the procedure soon. Does anybody know if their stabilizer parts are needed/ make a difference on the new frames. ? ;
