      Thanks man. Which ones dont you like? I have some changes in the works. The Reiger lip is sold, coming off right now. I am going to experiment with a few looks up front. Got the OEM lip on order, so will see if I like that look better.

R front is also a possiblity at some point.

      No. I asked my shop about that ahead of time. They said that comes from guys installing without proper torque specs. No noises for me.
