My estimate of 1200 per corner up front is looking to be pretty good.

Some where in that time frame. We will see. I am in no rush now that I have a DD, so when it gets done it gets done. I may not even do it this winter. I am not really sure at this point.

Dang your truck spends a lot of time under the knife. Looks like it's coming along nicely. I weighed my truck recently and it was about 4400-4500.

After talking to Andrew and using the Billavista calc for spring rates, I am going to go with the following.

14" Sway Away Coilovers 2.0" body
Dual Rate kit
12" 250lb/in tender eibach coil
16" 350lb/in main eibach coil

I want to call poly performance at lunch to see what they think and maybe order them today.
