    such an open ended question...you need to be more specific. Buying a kit will probably cost more, building your own is going to be very hard if you have no experience

    The it kit is better than the out kit if you do it yourself. But if you look at the up kit it is cheaper than the down kit, but only if you have them do it for you

    you need to do A LOT of research over this topic still before even thinking about deciding on even a single aspect of the build you want to put together.

    why did you pick kings? and how is it that you know the brand shock (so you must have a reason for picking that brand vs. another). what are your intentions with your truck? mounting is honestly the least of your problems. anyone can bolt on a bolt on kit.. what about the shock towers/hoops? what width do you want per side? why do you want that width increase? what are your plans for the rear? think you really have anywhere near enough information on this topic to even consider it? i certainly dont think you do.. nor does anyone else here. you should actually educate yourself on this instead of just asking what kit everyone else likes and going with that one... this is your truck and i have never met one person that was happy with a truck that they set up based off of what EVERYONE ELSE LIKED.

    Just wondering, how much it would cost to do the LT suspension kit. Going to install(?) it myself. Or is there a better kit out there? Thanks.

    What I meant was do the install myself because I'll be going with King LT shocks, and don't know the rest.

    I have been. I just would like others opinions. I just want it for when I can have some fun on the weekends. It's still my DD for now.
