Installed these shocks yesterday. Got em revalved by Sonny at Downsouth. I didn't change the ride height just left em where they were at from the previous owner. I had 5100's at 2.5" previously and from fender to top of tire I measured 6.8 on passenger side and 6.5" on driver side. With the SAWS i'm about 7.8 on passenger side and 7.6 on driver side. I didn't put the sway bar back on and the truck rides okay.
Took the truck off road a little and noticed it clunked when I'd hit small bumps. Even speed bumps at low speeds make the truck feel like a rock. My best guess is that theres too much pre load on the spring and the truck doesn't have anymore down travel so I'm hearing the "clunk" of the shock fully extending.
What measurements do you guys roll at? I know most do 3", but how the hell do I know my truck is up 3"? I'm gonna back off the spring by approximately .5" and go from there.
