The front is stock travel coilovers but I have the lift spindles... The rear is a custom 5" leaf pack and of course the extended rear shocks... 12"

Yeah, it was really strange to find that those springs had a mismatched bushing on them. It was a brand new bushing so it had to have been replaced at some point. It was smaller than the stock bolt. Maybe something your installer did?

We figured something out but we had to take a bushing from another aftermarket shackle and shave down some metal. Luckily, my fabricator guy was able to make me a custom bushing. It was extra work, but we got them on and they ride nicely!

Do you have any pics of the front or rear stance? How do the 315 tires do with the 7.5" wide rims ?

I'm thinking of using B.A.M.F.'s rear shock relocation kit to do my rear LT. You put Custom 5" Deaver leaf pack, that seems like a lot of lift, how much lift are you running up front? And I also see you are running just smooth body shocks with resi, do you think you would upgrade to a bypass shock later on or would these do the job? Also did you do anything else to the rear set up, shackles, relocate front spring hangers?

Your truck is awesome!

Just wondering what your front lift is at and if you have and rub with those tires and fenders?

I'm going for a similar setup

Shane--Questions for you--we have similar setups with the exception of you 5" leaf pack, the fiberglass replacement parts, and the shock relocation. Did you have to trim anywhere to accomodate the 315s? I'm thinking with fiberglass and a similar rear suspension setup I could make the jump as well...Nice rig btw

EDIT: looks like you changed out your spindles too--what size do you have on there?

Thanks for all the comments guys! Sorry for the extremely late response to many but I haven't been on the site for a little while. The rear shocks are actually 12" shocks as the 14's I was going to be running ended up being too long.

As for my rear setup, It's the BAMF shock relocation buckets modified for the 2.5" Kings, the Deaver pack is custom 5" lift because i'm running the lift spindles in the front and I didn't want the back squatting a whole lot.

The tires in the front do rub on the cab mount (I did do the chop) but might need to cut it back a little more. It also rubs on the driver side fiberglass bumper cap but not by much.

And the tires are 315/75/16

If you guys have any other questions, let me know!

SHane

I'm still a little confused about the spindles. When I look at the Maxtrac site everything listed is 2WD. Your truck is TX PRO TRD Offroad 4X4 isn't it? If not then I guess I wasn't aware of 2WD TX models
