I realize this is the LT thread... and I have different goals than many of you (I don't want to huck my truck), but you folks seem more knowledgeable than other threads, so.... Anyone have any suggestions for a good place to start with valving for a 1st gen?

Currently have MT with ex travel kings in the front (with whatever the stock king 1st gen valving is) and 600lb coils, expo leafs in the rear with whatever the stock icon 1st gen valving is for icon 2.0rr. The icon's are slightly too short, and I am planning to replace those with billy 12" short body 7100's RR. Currently only armor is sliders. Shell + sleep platform + tools / etc = ~300-400 or so permanently in the rear. Hope to add a swingout rear in the near future. Had been thinking about going 255/70? Looking for "all-around" valving. Truck is my DD.

On a related note: Anyone have a link or suggestions for how to get valving dialed? I'm new to this

Rebuilding the back of a tundra for a customer. Had to cut all the original bed cage off cause the shocks bottomed before the bumps, shocks hit the frame, and was only cycling 16" on a 64" kit.

You could have just done 5" drop shock mounts off the bottom of the axle lol.

No valving is the same, drive it hard and through some of your regular shit then determine if it's too soft or too stiff and go from there, unfortunately valving is trial and error for everyone,wish I had an answer for you but you are the only one to determine it oh and btw try to have your normal ride weight in it while you do this.

Well I am buying new rear shocks, as the icon's are slightly too short for my leafs (allpro expos). I am planning to get billy 7100's (12" short body). It's really the starting point for the valving with those that I am hoping to get input on. 255/70 Is what I was thinking.... Or were you saying that IS a good starting point?
