i wouldnt think you would have to notch the control arms on 17s. are you sure the bag isnt holding you up? is it compressed all the way?

you got drop spindles? mine lays just fine on 17" escalades with 40 serise tiers. i even had my wheelwells. no notching dont to my LCA's

should i raise the bag brackets? because the bags are all the way compressed and its not laying and my fender is all cut out it seems like my controll arms are banging on the frame let me know what you guys think

yeah, if you cant layout and your LCA's are on the frame then you need go go buy some DROP SPINLES.

im thinking i have them because i have no camber on those wheels let me know if i should still buy some or how i can tell whats the difference with the stock ones

you can notch the lowers and have the balljoint angle flat meaning that its level from the bushings out to the balljoint and you should be able to lay a large wheel on stock spindles.
