More suspension travel!

Hey guys, so this Christmas I'm looking into doing some more to my suspension... maybe some better shocks and I'm also looking to add just a couple more inches of travel on my front suspension.. I don't want to go all out with a Camburg or DBR kit, but I just want a few more inches of travel.

Any ideas?

You could get a uniball upper arm, some 2.0 shocks and limit straps. Should be good to go.

You could give brandon from BTF a call 909-702-7462, let him know I sent you and he should be able to help you out.

would those upper arms work? sorry, im not too sure what the "uniball" really means.

I mean I've pretty much limited it down to what you said Alon, with the new upper arms, shocks, and limit straps.

OR

take out my shock-inside-the-coil setup with the whole coil spring socket and replace it with custom shock hoops and coil-overs..

5.5kit...10-11" travel,
brandon at BTF same concept as camburg 5.5 but uses fabtech/doeshtech spindle and modifys it for uniball and a custom upper arm..

that is pretty much it without getting a long travel kit or a mid travel kit from blitzkrieg like flomaster on the forums..

and if you dont want to fork out the cash for the 2.0 shocks, FOX makes a bolt in shock that is able to be revalved and bolts in factory locations. that is what i will be running when i get the camburg 5.5 on my truck in about a month. my front will be 10" travel and i will be limiting my rear to whatever i can get with factory locations and the FOX shocks since i dont want to cut the bed up.
