    For the stage 1 kit can you swap out the standard travel CO's for the extended travel CO's since they are the same price?

    It's no problem, for anything custom you want to do give me a call at 503-822-1111 ext. 1 and I can modify any stage kit to your liking.

    The Stage 2 kit - do these rear leaf springs work with the TSB? Do i need a differential drop kit since it's a 4x4? Another stupid question - these are adjustable height? I'm running 265/75/16 now and only want a 1-2 inch lift until I get 285's.

    What is the TSB?

    From our experience diff drops are not necessary, the angle on the cv shafts isn't great enough to prematurely wear them out.

    The front coilovers can be adjusted from 0 - 3" of lift. You will need to purchase the spanner wrench if you want to adjust your coilovers.

    Another dumb question - free bump..

    They recommend 285/75R16, has anyone had issues running 17 inch wheels? What would be the recommended backspacing and tire size for that setup?

    I had the rear TSB done - 4 leaf springs instead of 3. So my rear is already about 1.75 inches higher than my front.

    Do you offer free shipping to Vancouver, Canada? I have a box in Washington State but I entered my normal adress by mistake it it seemed to still be free. If that's the case I will order it to my home adress instead.

    Also is there an option for the Extreme Weather coating?

    Thanks!

    What's your order number? We will cover up to $50 in shipping into Canada if you would like to have it shipped there. Otherwise I can ship it to your address in WA.

    For IVD coating I can add that to your order. It is an extra $100 for the option.

    I would suggest going with a different spring all together. We like using the OME springs in the rear and you can remove the 3rd leaf to drop the ride height down from 2.75" of lift to about 2" so the rake isn't as drastic.

    I'm pretty sure it is an extra 10% off from the site (which is 10% list, and great to begin with)

    Edit: It worked
