If you could start from scratch...

Gentlemen, good day. If you had the chance to start over with a stock truck, how would you go about your suspension upgrades?

I ask this, as I have this chance. I have to replace all my front suspension, leaf springs and shocks along with tires soon.

What would you do?

BTF kit or find a used DBR kit.

I'd love a Ranger with a Camburg Long Travel kit on it.

Not for what I do with it. But watching those long travel trucks blast through stuff sure looks fun.

Gents, I appreciate your replies. I have been quite busy with the truck, I went with stock suspension for now. But also my Jetta needed love, and the cheap motorcycle is always bugging me.

I do my initial Alignment tomorrow, and will have to do it again when I get new leaf springs in. Still not sure what route ill be going for this.
