Norm, didn't have to trim anything, although it's pretty tight back there. I have a BMR adjustable panhard bar as well. I'm not too keen on hacking the bump stop pads and my only issue is I have to get wheels off the ground with the suspension loaded to remove wheels, not a biggie. I've been using the diff (torsen) and want to start using that spreader beam from HF but need to fab some saddles to place under the tubes first. The last tine I used it on the front it had a pretty good bow in it so I'm going to weld it and maybe even add a couple flat bars to make it a little more rigid. Now that presents another problem because it will be too wide to use on the rear axle tubes. I'll have to buy a second one, get it with one of their 20% coupons.
