Sweet! I really want those tips more than anything lol. Hate my slp tips, duals is just a plus.

Looks like the lowest point is still the drivers side pipe off the header.

I went ahead and used all the clamps and hardware included in the kit. I may end up changing a couple for better sealing but again I am overall very pleased. It installed very nice with little headache, at least no more than any other automotive project! Like others have said, there are no instructions and although it is not hard, a simple page or pictures of hanger orientation would help save time. I feel like the system is as tight to the underside as it will get. I was fortunate to have friends that own a lift, so adjustment was not too bad, but I could see it being a bit more of a pain doing it on jack stands. Very pleased!
First time uploading pics pics but I will give it a shot.

they posted without my text,,, pics are above
Great photos, thanks for the update!

For what itís worth, the speed engineering panhard relocation bar has all the needed parts, but again, no instructions. So FYI, one bracket goes to the inside of the factory mount while one will have to fit outside. Also you have to drill out one of the factory holes to enlarge it. Just thought this might help someone else. Pics above..

I installed the UMI Panhard Bar and Relocated Body Brace and the instructions were very good! Same goes for the Rear Lower Control Arms.

Thanks again for the tip, you did a very nice job with your install. I'll be ecstatic if I get mine leveled and aligned like you did.

@03sssnake , Just curious, I was behind a c5 vette (frc or z06) one day at the drag strip, actually ran him one time. But it sounded rediculous. Cam sounded hyper if that makes sense, not Lopey, quick pops. Thing ran 123mph with a crap 60, I had him till the 1/8th in a car that ran 13.2's then he blew by me, BUT point of the story, it sounded amazing. Ive been curious how a fbody with true duals compares to a c5 corvette with exhaust sound wise, Ive never heard either knowingly, Any input?

that was something I noticed straight away on start up, the sound has changed quite a bit. I have 243 heads and an Futral F13 cam and the lope seems to pop quicker. WOT sounds completely different, it's loud AF, sounds incredible.. I wouldn't say like a corvette, but does not have the usual fbody sound either.

some small leaks, not a fan of the supplied clamps, got some of them to seal good, but just fighting the others near the axle and rear. I am going to replace them all with this lap joint style clamp (amazon link)..FWIW I have used these before and they seal pretty good.
