tell her not only does it ride better, the handling and safety of the truck increases tremendously. no BS on that because the first test drive i went on after i put mine on, i could tell a HUGE difference in handling. it was absolutely amazing. im sure mudslanger will chime in and say the same thing.


tell her to call me and ill sell her the dream on you getting coilovers.

As soon as there is a confirmed fit and use, I will step up for both the Shock Mounts and the Strut Mounts, maybe struts too if HD enough; larger OD than RCD Bars (looks and support for sliding on, if necessary).

I know SuperLift didn't use the struts but I like the idea of the extra support for the lower cross member.

So as stated above put me on both lists and as soon as the parts are confirm fit I will order the SuperLift Kit too.

the support bars im making right now. already making a set of those for someone else with a superlift. the brackets will be made to fit on the stock transmission crossmember and the superlift crossmember. they will bolt to both so no welding will be needed.


if any of you stock guys are wanting them, ill have to come up with a different bracket for the stock crossmember and a different bar because it will more than likely be a bit different length. If there is any interest in the stock bars, let me know and ill see what i can come up with.

If the price is good i may get an order and hold on to them for the future. Sounds like a great investment! (for future coil conversion)

You did say it looked like the Shock Mounts will stay around the $110 area (give or take); how about the Strut Bar Mounts/Bars, where we going on them ?

NOW I am getting excited ,
