I was writing all of this down on a word document so I figured I'd post it here for anyone who is interested to see. This is my current plans for my build which I plan to buy all the parts between now and christmas and then install everything over christmas break.
4” Superlift Front (K358)
- Replace any ball joints, seals, etc that need replacing
- Custom fab new tie rod end links
- stock torsion keys to replace the ready lift keys that are in now
4” skyjacker leaf springs
- Part number FR34S
- Leave 2.5” factory block and get new u-bolts the same size
- Remove shackles and sell
- Replace with OE shackles PN: 722-001 from autozone
- 33x12.5xr17 Mickey Thompson MTZ’s
- keep my 17x9 mt classic II’s 4.5 backspacing
link for custom fabbed tie rod end links
No more superlift Clunk!
This is how I have it priced out right now..
$1,600 – SL
$420 – Driveshaft
$365 – Leaf Springs
$1250 – 4 mtz’s
Shipping: $120 without tires, $90 with tires
(all above was directly from my cart at www.4wheelparts.com
$90 4 wheel alignment (estimate)
$70 mount and balance all 4 tires and wheels (estimate)
$25 custom fabbed tie rod end link (link at bottom is what I will be doing)
$35 torsion keys used off forum (hopefully getting tomorrow)
$50 miscellaneous autozone parts (tools, grease, seals, u-joints, bolts, etc)
$145 upper MOOG ball joints
$95 lower MOOG ball joints – combined $240
$60 for jacks and such unless we can rent them (only jack i have ATM is the stock ford one)
^^damn that stings haha
still considering cheaper ball joints and a cheaper alternative to the rear lift because thats a lot of moneys to blow just to have a badass truck during college lol
I'll keep posting whenever things happen but not much will be happening until a lot closer to Christmas time.
