    Nice trucks! And welcome to the forum I'm sure there will be good times ahead for your summit. If there is anything you need to know you will find your answer on here. Also when you see words replaced with **** it means they are a banned word and need to be changed by the edit option.. Just giving you a heads up

    EDIT: Why did you go with pink rate springs instead of the double orange?

    It will require you to adjust the preload collars(rings) on the shocks.
    You will lose some flex though.
    The shorter springs are intended for the progressive rockers. 90mm travel
    Stockers are 120 mm travel.

    I don't believe the 5451R will fit on the short sides (left front and right rear) of the differentials. I think for best performance you should use the stock shafts anyway.

    Since the EASY-OFF Fume-Free oven cleaner is banned in the EU, I'm sure the nasty EASY-OFF Heavy Duty Oven Cleaner Aerosol Spray would be banned as well.
    Must be the inclusion of Butane, Monoethanolamine, Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether, Sodium Hydroxide, and/or Diethanolamine. See HERE.
    It seems we Americans have a sort of Third-World approach to our cleaning products.

    Not sure if this will make your oven cleaner work. Soak the rim in some bleach for 1/2 - 1 hour. Bleach is just a watered down version of what is used to strip chrome off. Chrome is actually a clear protective layer. After you do this compare one rim with another the one you just stripped should have a off color sorta yellowish. Then try the oven cleaner once the hard layer of chrome is gone the nickle layer is soft and should strip off.
    Here are some more ideas. http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Chrome-Plating
