6" with RCD 4.5" kit.

cross posting because i am a whore.



question for all you suspension savvy guys...

I have the 6" procomp kit with the 6" COs.

looking at the kit, it keeps the CV angles EXACTLY stock... now the 3" guys, when they crank their COs a bit, they get a higher CV angle, but is still manageable upto about 2.5" i believe.

I have been looking at my kit, I dont think i need a full 6" drop bracket to run my 6" lift.

My question is this, Can i run these RCD 4.5" Brackets and still use my 6" COs to be sitting at 6" of lift, only with my bracket only dropped 4.5"??

My Lower Control arms would be mounted 1.5" higher, creating a bit more CV angle, but nothing too extreme, and I would have higher GC up front.

what do you professionals think about this idea? furthermore, would it be possible to even mount these RCD brackets after having the PC brackets on for so long?

yeah, that was my plan .. find a set of axles.. build them over some time, then start assembling all the parts necesary, and then once EVERYTHING is together, take it up to the best fab guy i can find and get er done.. but we are talking about 1 yr plus here

definatly, I figure i will sas after a bit. my problem is, I have this new truck i am not about to half ass a SAS job, I would end up spending all kinds of money there, i cringe at the thought lol...

But in the mean time, I would like to know what some of you think as far as this working or not. that is, using the RDC 4" brackets with my 6" COs.. thus gaining extra GC and keeping my height.

You know what, I was thinking of something along the same lines of what you're asking here. I'd use some OME coil springs on the Bilsteins that come with the RCD kit, but I dont see why it wouldn't work just by adding the shocks off your existing kit. The added ground clearance would be worth it for sure.

i guess the point is moot at this point, called RCD and asked it theyd sell just the brackets and they were not down

I have been looking for a long time for some brackets with no luck. Seems like you always have to buy the whole kit.

Bring your truck back to Bob and get the solid axle. Rent a car for the week or two while yours is tied up and you're set.

You should see the custom 4-link he did on a guy's Jeep. Sick stuff!
