The first quote that came back today was for $268, but they said they needed me to ship them my springs as a reference.

Nope, no odd noise at all. Only bottomed out on my exhaust on a nasty bump. Other than that, the 2 hour ride home was smooth.

I don't think I can go that route. I need to retain proper clearance for my dorky stock 15" wheels so I can use them as snow tires this winter. I don't think the spindle spacer kit would fit with stock wheels.

My drop coils were sent in a usps flate rate box. You should be able to do the smae with the stock ones? I wouldnt mind getting a spring thats stiffer then stock but not as stiff as these xii coils.

Well, my first feedback is that RoadMaster sure didn't take into consideration how close the driver's side shock comes to the rear leaf. I can't get the stupid RoadMaster bracket to not rub hard against the shock on the driver's side. I thought maybe it was because I have Blistein shocks and they're fatter than stock, but even the stock shocks have the same issue.

I'm considering grinding off part of the bracket for some clearance or sending the kit back

Do you have any pics? The qa1s are pretty skinny compared to the stock shocks.

That must be how jmarquez808 got this to work since he has QA1s. No worky for me no matter what I do

The bracket is rubbing on the shock just below the red stripe.







Using the 3rd bracket hole instead of the end to try and pull the bracket forward to where it won't rub. Unfortunately, the rubbing would stop if I could use the 4th hole, but then the bolt on the rod through the spring hits the back of the blocks and can't be pulled forward any more.

Some good news (for me, anyway)...

I contacted RoadMaster support for my rubbing issue. They're going to swap my current end brackets with the older, "Gen 2" brackets that won't have any rubbing issue. The "kit" that includes the older bracket is part #1350 and looks like this:



I'll have to pay shipping, but that's about it. If you decide to order the kit and have the same rubbing issue that I do, you should contact "Nolan" at RoadMaster at either nolan@activesuspension.com or 800-398-5036.

At least they are working with you, I hope the new brackets work for you.
