Pre-loading your shocks that much will make it ride harsh. My fox coils are jacked way up and its a pretty rough ride right now until I get some weight on them.
Hahahaha.. blonde moment apparently. Thanks for the catch.

Or how about shackles? Could I use shackles to lift the rear on an 11? are they any better the blocks?

The main reason I was thinking about this set up was I can get the spindle and adjt. billies and all for $1600.00. (Installed is an extra $525) The guys over at Desert Rat are recommending it. I guess they have it on a few of there rides and say it works well.
Does anyone sell just the DB? Or is it only sold in the Expensive kits?

I do want a smoother ride so...I still want good shocks like the coil over billies 5100, but maybe I can find a DB somewhere and have them install the same set up with out the spindles. Would that system work well? As far as the back going to stick with the add a leaf and 2" block. Not going to spend the dough for a new leaf if I don't plan on doing much wheeling.

Ahh so much to think about.
Let me know.

Patrick has wheeled it, but nothin too crazy.. people swap suspension all the time. It's built to last. For example.. Chas who posted above me swapped his set up into another members truck and it works great.

For 1600 go with a DB lift.. and forget installation.. we can do it..

Did you go to desert rat off baseline? Oliver (08pretaco) works there, you can talk to him about what your best option is.

I'd recommend either Pat's setup.. and save a ton of money.. or get a DB through desert rat. Regardless, DB is gonna be your best bet for your 6"

Lol. For sure man. Nothin planned really, might even be doin some work on the truck actually. I personally don't like the DB lifts, and try to persuade people out of them, BUT, its their truck and If they want a 6" kit then go or It. It's what makes you happy ya know. who knows, maybe you'll like the 3" on my truck lol

I still have a bunch of beer from new years.. so I'm in. Maybe we can get Patrick over and check his out!

Dont have DR install them, listen to the people on here and we can all help install it. Most people here (myself included) have done fully suspension installs. I did mine with the help of some guys on here it it works great. There are a few do it yourself places in Phoenix to do it.

I would seriously listen to the advice people give on here vice listening to desert rat. They are usually going to sell you there "sponsorsed" kits that have the biggest profit margin on parts and installation for them. Block spacers and AAL's are so cheap for them and they charge a bunch to install them.

Happy Friday...shit I need a beer. Is it wrong to want a beer at 10:45am?

Anyways. I see what you all are saying about the DB lifts. I agree. I found this guy with the same set up I am looking for. Except mine is a longed. Should look pretty sick>

See some of you Sat.
