I posted the pics of the brackets on the previous page last week. They're not powdercoated yet, but they're done.

I will be making them in small quantities, but they won't go out of production, per se. For the most part, I'll make them to order, but the way I usually make my parts is that if I get an order for one, I'll make two or three, and keep the others around for future orders.

Alright. Got the brackets installed this afternoon, and everything is right on them. Very happy with the fitment. Unfortunately, I need shorter springs. I'll save these ones for lift. I installed the shocks for now without the springs, but I was still able to make sure the springs will fit in there. The shorter rod ends are exactly the right size.

It was too dark by the time I got everything in to snap pics, but I'll get a couple tomorrow so you guys can see how they fit.

Very good news!

What length springs did you try using?

I just read 13 pages of this thread and 14 pages of the other recommended thread. There was almost 2 hours.

I didnt see a Parts list(for everything needed). Or a ball park price. I realize difference coil-overs cost different money.

I need to do something to the front of my 04. The #1 T-bars cant take the added weight of my snow plow

you'll need a higher spring rate. i think someone here went with 800 lb springs to keep up the steel front bumper.

parts will vary somewhat based on your needs but cost could easily be $1200

LOL. I don't know why, since I knew better, but I had ordered 12" springs. They were easy to mount up to the shocks I got, but the problem became when I tried getting them installed. I will not be able to set them at a reasonable ride height. I already ordered the 10s, and I'll just put the 12s away for a later time when I go for lift. The 10s should work well with a ride height setting equivalent to a full TB crank.

Hopefully the new springs will be here by the weekend. The funny thing is that I actually noticed a slightly better ride quality with just the shocks in. I don't know if it was that my old ones were so worn, or that the better valving was able to tame the TBs a little, but I can't wait to get the coil springs on now!

Yeah, I did the same thing....I have both 12" & 10" springs sitting here too (luckily they are not too much $$$).

I figure it should make it easier for me to decide to install a Superlift in the future! Little mind games! I can hear it now…well I ALREADY have these springs just sitting here..soooo lol

Glad to hear it's all coming together for you!

OK guys! Official pricing is in, and here's the deal:

Brackets in black powdercoat, gussets, grade 8 zinc plated hardware, and spacers: $270
Brackets without powdercoat, gussets, grade 8 zinc plated hardware, and spacers: $250
Upgrade to grade 18-8 stainless steel hardware: add $10


All pricing is without shipping. I expect to be able to fit them comfortably in a medium flat rate USPS box, which means shipping anywhere in the continental US would be about $11, and $28 to Canada. PM me if you need a shipping quote outside of that area.

Anticipated shipping time on these is mid-late December for the first run.
(with a little luck, they could be under the tree )

Oh hot damn... I gotta see how my finances are these next couple paychecks. My ol' lady won't like it, but if I pitch her with the "it'll ride 110% better", she might just go for it, lol. My money anyway... biotch, haha.

Let me get the commitment from all involved in production on turn around time, then I'll post an open/close time on the run.

Side note: tracking number on the new springs puts them here Wednesday or Thursday.

LOL. I mean the people doing work on them. I have one person cutting all the pieces, another welding them, and another powdercoating. I need to get commitments from them on a turn around time. I know the powdercoating is less than a week turn around, but the cutting and welding is where I want to make sure I'm set.

I'll keep you guys updated. Don't worry.
