$1000 To "YOUR" Front End

Lets say someone will buy you $1,000 bucks worth of front end suspension. I know I want Coil Overs SO bad! and some Uni Ball uca's but of what money I don't use they'll give me. (I LOVE MY grand parents!!! last few trucks it was the was 1st thing to break so they'll buy a new one so it can't )

- -Post pic's of YOUR front end AND SAY what is it and you happy or not-
- I got a 1st gen but want to know some if brands are shit off road/ can feel cracks in the driveway compared to others. ya know the specks of em all-

- - I want some feed back of what to get...
- Looking for: Total lift of give or take 3" to the front end. I do play offroad mainly mud, typical dirt/ rock roads and your occasional rivers/ lakes and snow. I don't want to fully drop the diff. like cut and weld shit like some kits, though I do have a spacer kit that has the 8" bolts and spacers rather just use that.

Skip the spacer lifts, go straight for some coilovers. My spacer lift isnt cutting it for me and now i'm having to do it over with better stuff. At least go for some OME coil springs on their shocks if you dont want to fork out the 1000 for a pair of real coilovers. Maybe get some SAW coilovers as they're a tad cheaper at around $750.

I got a spacer lift. It works for me but the ride can be a little "harsh". If I had the money at the time I'd have got either the Toytec ultimate kit, or the Icon c/o's. It seems that a lot of people start with spacers then upgrade.

So is that a complete package or just the rear?

that is the complete package. Front struts & rear replacement springs. Your factory springs swap to the skyjacker front struts thats why it may not look like the complete package, heres a pic of the difference in size

I got Bilstein 5100's to start. I had the front ones set to 2.5" and then had a add-a-leaf in the rear for 1.5" of lift. I just recently got the Toytec coilover kit that coverts the Bilstein 5100's to adjustable coilovers ($430). I also upgraded my UCAs to the Camburg ball-joint based UCAs ($360 to my door). I would have went with Total Chaos or even the Camburg uni-ball UCAs, but since I was only looking to fix my front end alignment issues I decided to save some money and go with the better priced ball-joint based UCAs. Have a look at my signature for all the mods.
