I know most recommend setting coilovers to 2.0-2.5". What I would like to know is for those of you running coilovers set to 3" how is the ride quality onroad and offroad and what brand coilovers ya using? Was it waaayyy worse set at 3" than say set at 2.0-2.5"
I still have the Revtek for now and still trying to figure out my final plan for a 'real' lift will be. As of now it's looking like ICON RR coils and ICON RR rear shocks.
For whatever reason my truck bone stock brand new off the lot had about 2.5" of factory rake. I have the Revtek which gives me 3" lift front and 1.5" rear, so I know have 1" of rake.
The front gap with 265's looks fine and the rear gap looks fine but I don't the 1" of rake.
I want coilovers for sure. I know they are not really designed specifically to lift the truck but more so for better offroad abilty but what I am trying to figure is if there is a brand of coilovers that will be less harsh than other brands set at 3" of lift. If I can stay at 3" of lift, I can back the rear down from 1.5" of lift to 1" of lift and get rid of 1/2" of the rake, which i would be fine with.
Originally I wanted it totally level front and rear but think 1/2" rake would be fine with me.
If I set the coils to 2.5" and a 1" rear lift, I would be back to having 1" of rake and would look worse than it does now because front and rear would both be 1/2" lower and would make the front gap stand out worse. I know I'm really splitting hairs here.
The other option is say fock it put the rear back to stock height and set the coils to 2" of lift which would give me the 1/2" of rake. But then I would be loosing all rear lift.
Or lastly I could set the coils to 2.5" and have it totally leveled out but have no rear lift at all.
Somebody tell me there are coilovers that are descent set at 3" LOL. I'm not too worried about how they do onroad but more worried about how bad they could be at 3" offroad.
I have a feeling the only thing that's goona work best is to set them at 2.0 or 2.5 and leave the ass end stock height.
