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
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?

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?
