Mid Travel Questions

Hey everyone, I have decided to go mid travel with my truck and wanted to get some opinions on the parts I am looking to buy. My buget is tight but I can go a little over the full amount for these parts. I plan on going LT, but not on this truck..... Thats for my future ride .

Here is the list:
All-Pro's Bilstein Coilover Kit 699.99
Total Chaos Upper Control Arms (Already purchased used for 300.00)
5125 Series Blistein for the rear. 79ea
"Expedition" Heavy Duty Rear Leaf Springs (Pair) - 3" lift 399.99

I'm moving back to San Diego were I can use my truck off-road more, but it is still my truck for day to day driving so its not strictly for off-road. If there is anything better close to those prices, or if I am missing anything imprtant please let me know. Thanks!

Since this isn't a LT build you may get more info in the standard 1st Gen Section or Suspension sub-forum

I thought about that, but arn't most mid travel kits smaller versions of a LT? I havn't seen much mid travel info on here and when I do it usually turns into a LT.

I would only call extended travel coilovers a midtravel kit. Those billys are still within the stock travel range.

I would get some coilovers such as King, Icon, or Fox because paired with the total chaos uca's you can gain a bit more travel.

Thanks guys, Looks like the Icon would be a good step up and worth the extra cash. I am going to need spacers with this as well it looks like.
