    I made the same move about 6 months ago. never looked back. SAWs are saweeet! didnt get the UCAs but if i had the $$ I would have. I have the 5125s in the rear which are basically the 5100s and they are awsome too. good decisions bud

    haha I would love a Toytec Ultimate lift, but I really can't spend 1000 bucks on a lift....I want Billys in the front with either AAL or Blocks in the rear, but with AAL im going to have to buy new shocks too..That still adds up to be 339+80. Still a lot of money for a high schooler..haha.

    True, True... I was the same. got the spacer lift not wanting to wait. And then saved up for what I got now.

    This is true. i got my SAW 2.5's for 450 and my deaver j59 for 500 brand new, guy never installed them. you just got to keep a good eye out for things and you'll find it sooner than you think.

    and a lil secret... spring time is a great time to hunt for bargains as tax return season is when most are upgrading to long travel and dumping their mid travel setups for cheap...

    only hard part is finding folks who are willing to ship...

    no im not going to bother to sell them, ill probly just throw them in the garbage, thats where they belong lol. with the frost fuckin the road all up it makes for such an uncomfortable ride that i dont even like drivin my truck. It feels as if theres no suspension there at all,they dont soak up a single bump.
