Final Checks & Adjustments :056:

Post Installation Warnings: Once the vehicle is lowered to the ground, check all parts which have rubber or urethane components to insure proper torque.

Torque wheels to factory specs. Move vehicle backwards and forwards a short distance to allow suspension components to adjust. Turn the front wheels completely left then right and verify adequate tire, wheel, brake line, and ABS wire clearance. Test and inspect steering, brake and suspension components for tightness and proper operation. Inspect brakes hoses and ABS lines for adequate slack at full extension.

Failure to perform the post inspection checks may result in vehicle component damage and/or personal injury or death to driver
and/or passengers. Test drive vehicle and re-check the torque of all fasteners and re-torque wheels on vehicle. Readjust headlamps.

Vehicle Handling Warning: Vehicles with larger tires and wheels will handle differently than stock vehicles. Take time to familiarize yourself with the handling of your vehicle.
