Alon ! do what i am planing!.... : get new a arms, cut off stock shock tower mount and add custom shock hoops utilizing either reservoir shocks (fox/swayaway/king)with the tbars. Or add 2.5/8 coilovers removing the hole torsion bar assembly. I am no expert but i believe the only other custom work would be to add mounts on the lower a arms and add a Camburg gusset kit onto the top mounts of the upper a arms. I'm guessing this setup would create a solid midtravle 4x4 or edge truck.

lol...I already have custom upper and lower shock mounts and know alllllllllllllll about these suspensions. I have had two different lift spindles and the camburg 6.0 at one point. I need to figure out if i want to lift it again or leave it stock and drive it till i get a new truck.

If i lift it again, i will be putting some plain ol sindles with the btf arms and dual 5100 bilsteins

Alon. Are you still planning on getting these A-arms? I want a set ASAP...i'm in the process of changing my lower ball joints and tie rods right now so I figured I might as well get these A-arms and just do it right. haha.

If you're not planning on ordering soon, how much are they straight from BTF?
