    When the time comes I’d love to, I just ordered a new front bumper and with the holidays the budget is kinda lean right now.

    Are the uppers specifically for this kit or are they compatible with other set ups?

    There are two different uppers in existence. The ones on my truck have stock geometry because the caster is changed with the lower arm and there is also an upper available with increased caster if you are running the stock lower mounting location

    The lower kit works with any aftermarket uppers as there is more than enough range in the lower mounts to get the correct caster

    I am not looking to run 35's or 40's on my daily pool truck. I'll stick with my 33's, just looking at options for replacing the uppers to improve my caster at the moment. I'll worry about the lowers when they need serviced or break.

    Just get the caster adjusted upper replacement and be done... they will definitely help you get to superior quicker to pick up tabs :)

    Thanks for that, I’m going to start tearing into the rear next week and I’ll see what will fit. I’m guessing I might have to poke through the bed to fit 14” if I want the axle to bump out on the frame

    You'll have to play with it. SUA will change all variables. It'll be interesting to see what you come up with.

    Shooting for 15-16” of travel with 6-7” shackles, low ride height and having the axle bump out on the frame is the plan

    Yup, cus you get the extra uptravel of the leafpack thickness potential.... but then for OP's use, SUA might not be ideal due to extra stuff hanging down.

    The only thing hanging down will be the thickness of the springs. I will build custom spring plate cradles and use grade 8 bolts instead of u bolts so nothing is hanging down
