    Hey man,
    I definitely recommend their coils and their quick ride kit if you’re not planning on needing to add any spring rate to the rear. Is there a reason you don’t want to run the dobinsons struts or shocks?

    The link was to their struts/shock/spring 2" kit, correct? (honestly asking to make sure I'm not screwing something up somehow ) The kit is showing everything needed for a 2" lift through them (though not a fan of them tossing me blocks vs aal, I'm not 100% against blocks either if needed)

    My bad! Yea you’re good. That’s a great kit and it keeps the cost down with the blocks in the rear. No kidding, the ride quality is unbelievable and you’ll like the added lift as well. Down the road, you can always throw their leaf springs in if you want to add more spring rate and load carrying capability.

    DM me if you want to order the kit and I can hook you up with free shipping. No worries either way.

    I’m the GM at Main Line Overland and Dobinsons is one of our best brands. I’m also running one of their suspensions on my truck too! D2541217-875A-4026-8EE4-7BBEAAE5BCB2.jpg

    Sub'd for an interesting alternative to the standard 5100 option.

    Reason I started this. Everyone seems to think 5100s are the only option for low priced suspension lifts, so been doing some digging for alternatives. Doing homework before committing. Really looking these though just wish the springs weren't the color they are.

    I think it’s great man! It’s great because it’s improves the ride and gives the truck a nice look. The quailty of their springs and struts are excellent too. I prefer the Aussie heavy duty twin tube kits over the bilstein mono tubes.

    Nice to hear. I say by middle of next week, I'll be putting in the order for these. More I read and watch videos on them, the more I like them

    I can get you the coils in Black if you’re interested. We also sell a nearly identical kit in our GTS which features Dobinsons struts and shocks in black and red coils instead. DM if you’re interested.

    Well, new toys arrived today, and they're going in tonight at 6PM. :D definitely excited, and will grab some before and after photos, and possibly some throughout the installation.

    For those of you interested in this kit, the rear blocks are Tapered, and the quality so far is top notch. Just went over everything with a fine tooth comb, and looks amazing. Excited for tonight. :D

    Suspension is on, sorry I didn't get more photos of us doing it, I ended up getting grease all over my hands and well, didn't want to get my phone dirty.

    I've only driven them for about 2 miles all highway so far. Stopped to grab food. 14 mile drive home on back roads from here, so will post up what I think of them once that trip is over. So far, extremely happy with them, and 2" lift was perfect height. (as you can see in photos. 1st photo was stock height, everything after is with lift)

    Looks nice.

    You definitely need a diff drop kit. Those CV angles are too much. $30 done and done
