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?

Something else to consider...long travel rear isn't as expensive as front and mid travel front can keep up with rear lt...just a thought

so ive been doing some reading, and came to the conclusion that caster can have a big effect on bump steer. usually positive caster is associated with toe out (i think?), and negative caster is the other way around? or is it opposite?

You got it right. Don't over think it. Max it out one way and go for a drive. Max it out the other way and do it again. You will find out what works for your driving style. Obviously, toe is adjustable with your tie rods.

Thanks for the heads up Landon, I ended up pulling the trigger on four 3" 5-point ProArmor harnesses.

good call, ProArmor restraints are really comfortable. I was back and forth between them and Mastercrafts. Ended up going 3x3 Mastercraft with the QSR shoulder straps to match my seats.
