So is this going to give you any lift? or just more travel?
Not really either, just performance enhancement. It may give about 1/2" more travel, but the c/v joints can't handle any more than the stock dimensions of the travel. So, all in all, i'm just installing better shocks. I'm going to measure exactly how much travel my front will have once I have the suspension and shocks apart, but I think the 9-10" of stock travel isn't too bad and can handle some decent off-road.

There is no link. Call them, they know exactly what you will be talking about.
yea i agree , sometimes mods take a long long time to finish including getting fenders painted. rideac1 you have a cool truck and i am loving those shocks ! i hope they work well for you!
I'm excited for warm and nice weather to put everything on that I have so far. I'm still looking at long travel springs but they are pretty expensive, especially the shipping cost from Cali to Pennsylvania
sweet, this has been what I have had planned for my truck for a while, cool to see it done, I was looking at Alon's upper arms as well and I have been looking into CV's that wont bind but i have yet to find anything. then air bumps and F31 deavers.
exactly... how much advantage do you really get with $500 Fox shocks... with torsion bars?
...it will be mid-travel mostly due to long-travel rear leafs. If I make the front perform better with the stock travel or an inch or so more i'd call it more of a mid-travel or performance since it's more useful travel off-road.
A small advantage, maybe not 500$ worth. Right now I can get my truck to cycle the front travel by just pushing on the bumper a few times. Hopefully with new shocks and possibly new torsion bars it will suck the mush up more. I don't plan on actually prerunning my truck so right now the best shocks that I can put under there is what I plan on doing.
The rear is a different story if I put Deavers or other long travel springs in.
I got a set of Hella 4000's, euro beam, yesterday via Camburg. I threw them on quickly in the place where my Hella 500's were and used the same wiring for now, and they rock!
I'm waiting for it to get warm out to put all these upgrades on. I'm ordering the tires here in a few weeks, and going to get my fenders painted as soon as it gets warm enough to put them on which may be next week.
