    I am perfectly happy with my lift of 885 springs, 5100s at zero and 265 tires. I have 10k miles on it, drives great, no vibes and handles perfectly, no reason at all to change a thing.

    So why in the hell did I just pull the trigger on 887 springs and SPC UCAs?!?!?!

    Fucking truck.... it's a damn money pit, worse than the other four before it.

    Are you talking about the 885 springs? Let me think on it for a bit. If I hate the bump up they might be going back on but I'll let you know.

    Yeah, I know that and we are probably around the same age - it was a joke son.....

    Still one of my favorite quotes from way back when:



    Good luck with the lift, eventually I will be doing something similar and might be hitting you up for advice


    Cheers

    Do NOT go down this road, you'll hate yourself. It's definitely the road to diminished returns!

    It's like being a parts junkie.

    Merry Christmas to you too Mark! I'll let you know how it works out!

    That pigeon toed look up front was starting to bother me even though the truck drives fine. That's what generated the UCAs and since I was poking around, why not add another 1/2 inch up front so BOOM, 887 springs went in the cart also.

    Going to look good, just put in the ocd console organizer, going to put the pro grill in after Christmas, waiting on the longer wiring harness which should be in on Wednesday. I'm doing the clazzios with the heated seats but that depends if Mrs. Santa says I have been good we did my son's clazzio install, super easy.

    You'll enjoy the Clazzios, I did them two years ago and they still look new.
