    ran the suspension for a year on my 96, am up grading now. comes with new upper and lower ball joints. can use stock spindle or lift spindle. coilover is adjustable to provide 4" of lift (i believe) everything is 100% bolt on. located in san diego, 775$

    includes uca's, lca's, coilovers, and new upper and lower ball joints.

    Ok this is almost exactly what I've been looking for, but I have a couple questions.

    What size wheels/tires are you running in that pic?

    I see that it says 4"of lift, but how much wider does it kick out the wheels in front? Can stock fenders be utilized or do you have to do fiberglass/flare the stock fenders? (can't tell from the angle of your pic what yours looks like from straight on)

    I have the exact same truck as you, and I've been SEARCHING my ass off for a setup that wasnt either a ghettofabulous block lift, or a 10 grand total chaos build. Very interested in buying, and I have that much cash, and I'm close enough to pick it up myself or meet halfway. (ventura, LA area)

    PM me your phone number, I'll contact you tomorrow with a few other questions i have about the kit.

    Looks like he's running flared fenders in that pic. Hard to tell. I'm sure you could run this setup with stock fenders as long as you weren't hitting anything to hard and your tires weren't too big.

    Do you know of anywhere else I could look for a setup like this? I'm in no position to buy right now but I will be later on. Just wanting to keep an eye out for something.

    Also, what are you running for the rear? What would compliment the front well?

    stay away from the AAL. they lift a bit but make the ride rough. if your rear leafs havent flattened out yet, you could just run a shackle to lift a bit, and maintain the factory ride.

    I'm not worried about lift. I just want better performance and smoother ride over rougher stuff. Whatever lift I get with the components I add will be enough for me.

    whats nice is with the lca being set up fro a coilover, down the road you can convert the coil bucket to accept a traditional coilover. then the sky is the limit as far as ride comfort. tune it to your needs.

    i am running the exact same kit and really like it and have had a blast beating the shit out of my truck and very little issues thus far.
    To the fella above who asked about where to find this kit... you won't! Downey went under and i don't think anybody else makes anything similar.

    Great kit, good price, GLWS.


    cept where did your limit/bump pads go?
