    Experience is credibility. Helping others get to experience the same thing is beyond.

    Does ADS offer the first valve adjustment free like King? I am thinking I won’t need the clickers but I also don’t want to shoot myself in the foot not spending the extra $500

    I've been looking at these & billies for my 3rd gen. I don't want to go more than an 1" in front and 1/2" in the back. I have stock sized tires but get a little rub believe it or not with my scs Ray10 wheels, but I have some armor underneath and Mobtown sliders. I really want to improve the ride of my truck more than anything while eliminating the rub I currently have. I'm only a weekend wheeler and mostly do trails or washboard roads. What are some thoughts on a setup for this? I've had my truck almost 3 years and just can't find any real info on a set up like this. ADS looks like good stuff though.

    Ya, I've been reading about 8112's for the front and 5160's for the rear maybe to save some coin, but not really a whole lot of info on that mismatch :)

    Honestly that’s probably the setup I “should have gone”, only problem with the 5160’s is that they have basically stock exstension


    I may sell my ADS after first service. Maybe.

    I think I owe it to ADS to put these through what I can find.

    Ran through the whole install yesterday and everything went pretty smooth. Noticed the difference immediately after leaving the driveway. Going to let the setup settle, make a few adjustments, and then will test it out on some trails in a few weeks. 56901912805__55F61713-6150-49D2-B980-7599622BD038.jpg

    Your resi hose seems to bend weird...maybe you put the resi brackets on backwards (see attached) Looks good otherwise. :thumbsup:

    Yours looks fine IMO. I think ADS strategically places the stickers to face outwards.

    Hmm interesting. Looks like your hoses are actually shorter? Both brackets were the same so they could only face that direction.

    Yeah it was hard to keep the ADS sticker showing. The hose tension made it want to flip it all the way around.

    I did loosen the hose mount ever so slightly (like 1/8”) and then resigned after config. I’m not sure why they would make mine shorter. I ordered them in November

    Maybe they use a different length hose for clicker applications? Beats me haha.

    Possibly. Who knows.

    Good looking setup either way. What’s better is it will take a beatin’

    one has clickers with fittings vs the non clickers so the hose bend is different. Same on KINGs

    I tried using a punch but had issues aligning it. It's difficult to explain but after maybe two turns the adjustment holes end up in weird positions where I can't access them because my UCA gets in the way, or my frame mount. I need something with the curved tool, thinking of getting the ADS took but is there another coil's tool that might work better?

    Truth. That wrench is a bitch when you get past a point where it no longer fits during a turn
