    Okay so, coming this fall I will be upgrading the suspension on my truck. Here's what I'm planning on running.

    For the Front:
    2.5 King Coilovers w/res
    TC UCA's
    For the Rear:
    All pro 3in leafs and u bolt kit with timbren bumpstops
    2.5 Kings w/res

    Couple questions, do I need anything else or can I call it a day? Will I need extended break lines? Any other recommendations or much appreciated since I am a complete newbie at this stuff and need as much help and feedback as possible.
    Thanks

    bigger tires on stock rims with spacers, or just new rims and tires! i dont think any brake line extensions are necessary... but pics of the finished product will be required :)

    sounds like a good setup. if you have the extra money, i suggest buying a set of tc 3.5" spindles, that way you can leave your coilovers at stock height and have a smooth ride.... oh, and you dont need extended brake-lines.

    Great, I didn't think you needed extended brake lines, just wanted to make sure. I'll look into to those spindles and see what the cost is like. Keep the info coming guy.

    Are you 4x4?

    And you dont need the brake lines in the rear but you can if you want. What you do is just take of the bolt holding the bracket to the axel and bend it back to give you a few more inches of play.

    Look a little more into the timbrens and make sure its what you want. some have mentioned that you dont get your money's worth, but thats not what all reviews mention. Maybe get an idea of their performance and see if that fits what your looking for, if not spend the cash on something else.

    Just an idea.

    Another question, if were to install this myself with help of friends who know what there doing, how much time am I looking at to get everything set up? I'm guessing it can get done in a day?

    Even though spindles are out, it would be best to get extended brake lines with them.
