That cheap? That's pretty good. I assumed they would be more. I bought my springs with the lift from MudSlanger

How do you determine what bump stop you will need?

You can use 6.5" on a stock height?

Also what is the best weight spring for a stock height truck.

I actually have Strange Engineering shocks, and the shocks I have are 5.5" travel, not 6.5". The recommended spring height on them is 12", and I have the 10" cranked all the way, so a 12" should be a better match.


Current List:
SteelDirigible - Powdercoated
RLong31 - Powdercoated
Brandon22685 - Powdercoated - paid
FFBill - Raw
Jatha05 - Raw - paid
bigmoon - Powdercoated - paid


Currently on track for the middle of May on raw kits, end of May for powdercoated.

Also, since I had the request, and I looked into it, I'll open the powdercoating up to other basic colors if anyone wants. It's an extra $20 for a color other than semigloss black, because it will have to be done by itself instead of with a batch.

Does anyone have pictures of relocating the brake lines and bump stops to accommodate the coil over upgrade?

If it's cool, I'd prefer to wait a bit to pay, but if you are needing the money to get the run moving I can send it. I'm just trying to space out my purchases is all.

OK guys, the stock is in, and the parts are being cut.

I'm having 10 sets made this round. There are currently 7 people on the list with 4 paid.
If the set runs out and there are still people wanting, I'll start round 5, but for now, there are 3 sets being made that are unspoken for. If you want in, get on the list!

I'll keep the thread updated on production progress.

What size limit straps did you stock guys go with? I searched and a post in here came up with "depends where you mount to". I'm assuming around 10" or is that too short since my coils are 10"?

Edit: I found these. http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...p-p-30918.html

Anyone have experience with them?

I have had great luck ordering from poly performance. I am running 10 in straps on my superlifted set up. Again it depends on how you mount your straps

They are not required but the make mounting and adjusting a lot easier. Here's all the parts I used.

10in straps are plenty for superlift 8in for stock

http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/Poly-Performance-No-Label-Quad-Wrapped-Ultra-Strength-Limit-Strap-p-30918.html

get these, with the clevis and clevis mounting sleeve with tabs.

they come with weld on tabs but if you want to be fancy, you can get these too

One question for anyone to answer, does it come with the gussets? and if not, how much to add them to the order (if possible)

Yes, it says earlier in this thread the kit consists of gussets for the shock tower, upper and lower mounts and hardware to install.

Exactly - People need to read a little here.




Just because I'm a good guy (Yes, it counts if I say it myself!) I'll go back like one entire page just to 'bump' this info for others:

$17 US
$46 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--like Fox)
All hardware to install--grade 8 zinc plated
I would suggest people send ME00Stepside a PM to make sure he knows you’re serious and to arrange payment.

Thanks Logan.

FYI guys, 8 out of 10 spoken for, 4 paid.

I should have the brackets within the next couple of weeks, and another week or so to pick them up from the powdercoat shop.

Hardware will be ordered as soon as I have the brackets, so everything should be ready to go within a few weeks.
