    Aloha all,

    New springs are installed! It didn't take too long to install them, I was happy to get rid of the factory crap....

    New Springs, I had these made for 300 Extra LBS for later....

    New VS Factory with Fabtechs add-a-leaf

    Back sits 3" higher then the normal fabtech rear lift, stock was 27" now 30"

    I forgot to take a picture of the finished leveled out pic, Here are the specs...

    Rear to the bottom of the bumper 30"

    Front to the sway bar mount, 24 1/2

    Front stock was at 6" now its at 8"
    Back was blocks 3" add-a-leafs 1 1/2 4 1/2 now 7"

    Front sits about 1" lower in the front then the rear, witch i like it like that, I like the front being a little lower then the rear so when i put people / gear in the bed, it will then sit level...

    Comments welcome... I will make an updated video walk around later this week.....

    Sharp looking truck, I can't wait to see the finished side shot. Looks like you have quite a bit of rake though, is that what you wanted?

    Yes, from the blocks vs what i have now was 3" difference, however if you dont want it that height, just order the same springs I got at 5" and it will sit right or get what i have and adjust the front to match...

    It drives so much better, I would say it now handles like a stock truck would or a truck with a nice suspension...

    It doesn't sway anymore.... I am going to take it to sears tomorrow for a alignment, not sure if it needs it, but i just want to make sure all is well

    I was going to get these, but All-Pro wouldn't tell me if they would be higher than what i already have or not....

    I couldn't take the chance because of the shipping to Hawaii.. 390.00 bucks...

    orbit eye bushings, i would suspect this causes more "body roll" when cornering on the street?
