Love your truck/build so far.

Glad you painted the center caps black to match.

Will also be stealing your herculiner on the rear bumper step

Okay, well I went over to my friends house today to install all of the suspension and it went fairly well. Got the drivers side tire off fine then moved to the passenger and one of the lug nuts had been cross threaded on at the tire store so the stud broke off. No biggie, just went down to autozone and picked up a new stud and some lug nuts. Then we got the front completely done with the help of some really heavy duty spring compressors rented from autozone.

Moved to the rear and got one side of the axle undone from the leaf pack. Then I went to remove the bolt in the shackle but it would not budge. I had heard of this happening but me being retarded decided not to order the new eye bolts. So I ended up putting the rear back together and installing the new shocks for now so I could at least get home. Im going to either get the bolts at the dealer tomorrow or order them from Dan at Wheelers, which ever is cheaper/more convenient. Overall a good day and maybe I can get this install done sometime this week.

And the pics:


Do you see it? lol




Luckily the nectar of the Gods helped remove the stud.


Working on the drivers side.


Does this look right? A bit less threads showing on the new strut but its tight.


Drivers side done (note, its still jacked up in the air so the CV joint looks terrible).


Stupid stuck bolt.


Try not to laugh at my exhaust install fail, it was my first time lol.




Back on the ground


How she sits today. A bit of bro lean so I need to keep the doors locked to keep the bros from getting in.


Just from the drive home, the ride is incredible compared to before. I can fly down my road now with comfort where before it was bouncing me all over the place and rattling the truck apart.

Okay, so I feel kinda stupid now that I know the bolt is connected to the shackle meaning both bolts have to come out at the same time. This is good since I should have the install done tomorrow.

Rear is done! Here are some pics:
Just starting, shocks off




This main eye bolt gave me a bit of trouble but we were able to press it out with some channel locks.




Old springs




On the ground




Back home.


The ride is great and I really like the look.

You are fine mounting them that way, I just thought they might be better this way since if water gets in the boots, it won't sit on the seal.

All the bolts were re used. Im going to re torque everything in a few days just to make sure everything is all right.

Thanks, I really felt like an idiot after having to put everything back together to drive it home when all I had to do was remove the top nut. Oh well, you have to learn somehow.

Well, I debadged her yesterday and I love the look. Will get some pics soon.

But today I went on the freeway for the first time on the new suspension and I have some driveline vibes. Looks like I need to make some carrier bearing spacers to hopefully get rid of the problem.

Dang that is a transformation. I really like the new look. I am looking at those OME coils but I really like my look at my Bilstein's set at 2.5".

Truck looks great!
