Well, correct me if I'm wrong, (it only makes sense).... if they're stock length, the wheel travel is going to be the same!

Taken from the webpage at ChaosFab.com:

Many customers do not want to install fiberglass fenders or increase the track width with a long travel system, but they crave the aftermarket performance benefits of increased dampening with dual shock capability and the added strength of the lower uniball conversion.


Makes sense to me, they're just heavier duty.

sounds like just a more rugged set of arms with just an inch more travel over stock...

at $1600, you are halfway to long travel and at least 30 to 40 percent more travel...

if you got the money, then its a cool way to improve performance on a stock looking rig...

i just heard of them and wanted to know what you guys think thanks it sounds like it would just be better to go with the long travel after you buy the lower ones and the upper control arms.

Depends on how you use your truck and what your budget is. These will work with whatever coilovers you currently have while the long-travel requires longer coilovers. Also, the non-All Pro LT kits require fiberglass fenders.

You're 4wd so you'll also need longer front axles, which will run you about $500-$600 plus labor to install them in your existing CVs.

Lots to consider when going LT beyond the cost of the kit itself.

I called TC about these when I first saw them a few weeks back and they told me absolutely no more travel than stock lca's. The two benefits are the option for a second shock and the lower uniball conversion. I have never heard of any issues with the stock lca's or the stock ball joints so these seem a little pricey for the main benefit being, having the option to run a second shock. If you need a second shock, you might as well go long travel. They do look nice though.........
