The length of the actual limit straps will depend on how you mount them - people have mounted them a few different ways, which changes the actual length needed. But yes, as long as you stop the coilover from overextending, you will be fine.

When I was stock, I was planning on using something like an 8" setup, but like I said, it depends on where and how you mount them to the truck.

I would recommend that you first install the conversion, then you can look for a spot and confirm the mounting methods you would like to use, and then base the actual strap length off of that.

I can vouch, these brackets are an awesome quality and the power coat is also good. I did notice that I'll have to remove the powdercoat in the bolt holes to make em fit.

Sorry guys, the last two days were kind of crazy. I've started to pack everything up. I picked up most of the hardware, but I'm waiting on two part numbers to come in, hopefully within a day or two. I should be ready to ship by the weekend.

I still have not heard from the 4 people mentioned earlier. If I do not hear from them by Friday, I'm going to offer to those that are further down the list.

Wow. I finally had a chance to check on here, and I see a few posts. I'm not getting email updates for some reason.

I'm still waiting on the last few pieces of hardware, but everything else is ready to go. I'm going to stop by the warehouse today and see if they came in.

Still no word from the four unpaids, so as promised, I'm going down the list:

w_pinkerton
yamarider88
romagna127
aaronmcd
BA99ranger

There are four spots open. I have one powdercoated set available, and 3 raw sets.

I'll give it a few days of going in order, then I'm just going to go first come, first serve. Again, after these are gone, if there are still interested parties, I will start another run.

OK a couple of things. First, because I've been getting PMs asking the question, and I realized that the pricing is 7 pages back already, here's the pricing:

Quote:
Kit with powdercoated brackets: $290
Kit with raw brackets: B$270

Shipping:
$16 continental US
$35 Canada

Kit includes:
4 brackets (2 upper, 2 lower)
4 gussets to reinforce shock tower
2 shock tower spacers for upper mounts
8 rod end spacers (for 1/2" wide rod ends)
all hardware to install


Second, as of right now, the first 4 guys on the list I posted yesterday have first crack at scooping up the last four sets. Friday I will open it up to whoever will send payment. I've got more into this run right now than I have in payments. I don't want to sit on these. I hope people don't think I'm being harsh, but I'm not in a position right now to be in the negative for this project.

Thank you.

Aric,
You're good to go. I just heard from someone that can't do it this round. I've got either raw or powder coated. PM me if you need payment info.

You should change your sig from mods to your truck to a link to this thread and prices. Maybe the mods/admin's should make a deal with you for a contributor/vendor status.

Sounds like a lot of work on the second part when he just wants to do limited runs that don't affect his life too much, lol

What? I held back on the national holiday comment.

Yea, I agree though. Who knows though, he might actually make enough to run a small business.

Hey guys,

Sorry for a slow response. Busy weekend.

Yes, I've got updates. The rest of the hardware is in. I'll be picking it up tonight, and I will be shipping this week. Everyone will get tracking numbers for their packages.

I've still got a few sets left. I will update that shortly, but I believe I have two coated, and two uncoated available.

Thanks for your patience.

I have two powdercoated sets and two unpowdercoated still available. I'm not holding any spots at this point, so anyone who wants these, they will go to the first people to pay.

Everything is ready to go now. The people still on the list (all who have paid) will get their tracking numbers within the next 48 hours, and the packages will be on their way!

I will get the other four packed up and they will be able to ship out right away for future orders.
