Looks badass! Wow! Those remote resi coilovers are sick. Personally I think it looks better being higher in the front, it looks meaner. After I get the $ to buy new non sagging tbars my truck will sit like that, slightly higher in the front.

Your having problems bleeding the breaks? Maybe you should buy some speed bleeders, they might help.

it looks good, i thought it was going to take you longer to get it done but seems like you busted *** and figured it all out props to you man!

how much did this swap cost you? and total time wise?
I am not really sure. its 1" lower than before at least. I have no idea on cost. Time? Never kept track, 50+ hours? then again i get side tracked.

I have over 1200 in shocks alone to give you an idea. Honestly I have no clue how much I spent this time around, have not been keeping track.

thanks for the comments guys.

i drove it today, MUCH better, no death wobble, no bump steer. I dont have my steering stabilizer on either. I think I finally nailed a good suspension on my truck.

the springs are stiff but they are starting to breakin and move. the ride is amazing compared to the old.

Looks good zach. I'm glad to hear you don't have the death wobble any more. How fast have your run the truck with the new setup? Did it stay nice and stable?
