Square tubing part is probably for where the rear suspension links attach to the body (at front of fender well).
FWIW when you do the 2" lift to the front, you will end up with a LOT of down angle on your CV shafts. This could lead to premature wear on CV joints (haven't had issues with mine yet). For this reason, it might be advantageous to install the spacers that drop the engine cradle, rear suspension cradle, driveshaft carrier, and transmission crossmember. Definitely will be needed if lifting more than 2" Dennis

Wish I had a better photo but, in person, to me it looks much better.

BTW. You weren't wrong. I will note, unless something got put on wrong, that the front end still is lower than the front end. I wonder of 2 1/2" for the front and 2" for the back would lead to a more linear look. Right now mine has a rake from back (high) to front (lower).

I think it looks good but you can see the difference.

Sorry for the multiple posts. I just wanted to note that the rear wheels are a little more forward in the rear wheel well. Not sure if that is normal or not but that is what I got.

I didn't do anything expedited. From order to delivery is was just about 3 weeks. I think it was about 1 1/2 for him to make them, a few days before they shipped, and about a week out for delivery.

I will PM you the email address I have for him. He responded to me in a day or so.

I think that is SOP. My stock '05 has about 1" of clearance to the front of the rear wheel well and about 1.75" or clearance to the rear...

Thank you for the reply. I wish I would have noted this before the lift for reference. 8)
