im telling you, rustolium paint those things which ever you decide to do will just look sharp on the black truck. see the difference here:

Looks good! I'm terrible with paint as well! Haha I'm too impatient... I think I like fender flares more of a matte finish to offset the paint. Plus I'm going to bedline the bottom quarter of my truck at some point so I figure it would look good if the fender flares matched.

Haha I'll go buy some clips this weekend and paint them with bed liner just to make you happy

Haha yeah that's pretty much what I plan to do. Get rid of all the chrome, tint the windows, probably lightly tint the tail lights and brake light, buy some clear corners, and eventually black out my headlights once I do a retrofit.

Dang... Haha okay.

What is your suggestion on this? Should I jump on these while they're this good of a price?

So I plan on ordering my lift tomorrow and want to make sure I'm ordering everything needed...

Here's what I'm ordering:
5100's front and rear
eibach coils
aal
u-bolts

I know that it's recommended that I get an extended rear brake line as well as a bpv bracket. But it's going to be a while before I'm able to flex the rear, so those can wait.

Mainly the price. In the long run everything will end up coming out to be pretty much the same price, but I can't afford all of the little extras such as the bpv bracket, extended brake line, diff drop kit, and the cost of the toytec all vs. the pro comp aal...

I know the pro comp aal will ride stiffer, but I plan to switch out to a new set of springs in the future so I'm not gonna bother getting a more expensive aal...

I also could not find any good comparison as to saying which is better than the other.

Price wise, the Bilstien/eibach route is just the better option right now.

also, i have the procompl aal i like it. it was perfect before the rear shocks blew out but thats not entirely my fault lol

oh in case your curious...

certainly are more of one than the other
I can understand them being so popular due to being adjustable. It's just something about them I like though, definitely not bashing OME at all. I think they're both pretty close in reliability. Plus when looking at leaking issues, Bilstein is used by many more vehicles than OME.

Here for the past few weeks or so my power steering makes a lot more noise than normal it seems.
When the vehicle warms up or when it's warm outside it seems to quite down. Fluid levels are good also. It didn't seem to start doing it until I got the timing belt and water pump replaced....

Don't know if this helps, there is also a odd noise that sounds like maybe the bearings for the pulley are going out? I'm not sure, but you can't hear it on the video very well...
