FINALLY Coilovers COMPLETE

Hells yeah!!! Finally finished my coilovers.... Truck rides WAY better than it did with bars. Fronts higher to but it will probably settle. No torsion bars + coilovers = MOAR GROUND CLEARANCE lol... Im happy with the truck now. Just waiting on my winch bumper to come in then ordering a winch and i should be set for awhile... on with the pics, these are all aftermath. didnt take any build pics sorry.

best place I've found is on the frame in front of the shock tower gusset and on the LCA where the sway bar bolts up

Sweet. Those short coils look like they would bind really bad, but I guess there isn't enough suspension travel to worry about that anyway. lol
Are the factory bumpstops still there? I would definitely make sure that you get it strapped asap.

The factory bump stops had to be cut off... coils hit too bad. So im going to research some bumpstops and proper lenght limit straps soon... since i want to hit the trails ASAP lol. I dont think the coils will bind at all like you said there isnt that much travel anyway. But 14" coils instead of 12s would have been better, but the 14s didnt come in the rate i needed so 12s it is lol

I havent seen him on here for awhile so idk if he's around. And i think he stopped making the brackets. His user name is Shadow905 but like i said i dont think hes on here anymore.

He's on Facebook. I talked to him a few weeks ago about making some and he said he could make them for $200.

the LCA's are a tad steep but once the coils settle and the weight of the winch bumper and winch are on it will be ok.

Total cost was around around 600... the coil-overs are 207 a pop so theres 417 bucks right there lol
