Some Camburg, some BTF, some Bilstein, some OEM

Well I finally installed the majority of the parts i've had laying around for months in my garage!

The installed parts list:

2011 OEM headlights/corners
2006+ tails
2 regreasable lower balljoints
2 sets of inner and outer Timken wheel bearings
2 BTF uniball upper control arms with brand new uniballs and misalignments/bolts
2 Bilstein 5100's for the front
2 Bilstein 5100's for the back
2 Camburg CRS 2.5" lift coils

Not yet installed are new brake pads/rotors, OEM 2.25" lift blocks, U-bolts, top plates, and a hitch/reciever.



So without further ado :)
-------------------------------------------------
Definitely needed new balljoints! old vs new



Old stock UCA's vs BTF uniball UCA's



shocks



after much toil and labor



and the final result (ignore my friend) --> edit: Just to give some perspective the rear end already has 2" lift shackles











Unfortunately none of me hitting some rough trails to break in the coils... but I do have an aftermath shot



Headlight HID decided to stop working..... as well as my fog haha

looks good, what are the plans for the rear?

also if anyone can chime in on this, is there a difference between the 2wd and 4wd UCA?

i think it may be the width at which the uca bolts to the frame. thats the only thing i can assume. but thats torsion bar compared to the coilsprung a arm suspension. but dude the truck looks great i really like it.

Looking good man. As others have said, back needs to come up a bit. But theres nothing wrong with a bit of cali lean on a 2wd truck. I kinda like it. As long as it isn't too much

Ya like the original post says I've got 2+" OEM lift blocks ready to go, I just didn't have time to install them. Me and a buddy finished the front at 3 AM so we were way to tired to continue on the back. The coils will break in and be lower as well.

Ya I HATE this much lean. If my rear view mirror is usable, thats an acceptable amount. Right now its useless

I've actually had them since like the 20th. 4wheelparts had them even longer then that they just never called me to let me know like they said they would! I called up just to get an ETA and they were like "oh... um we have them here..." haha
