for 98-Current Trucks....more ground clearence. With coilover's your getting rid of torsion bars. So you ground clearence is alot higher. It has a better ride, smoother feel

Can I have a Fox and Eibach Sticker?

I'll bring up the welder and my compressor if you give me a definite date.

That trailer would be really handy instead of trying to lift the heavy, bulky welder up into the truck. Maybe I can borrow my boss's
