    SPC and moog joints have as much articulation as uniball and the SPC specifically allow for increased alignment options over the others, your limiting factor is shock length. Uniballs were built for racing and as such require more maintenance than that your typical ball joint. Whether people do it or not is up to them, but they do require more service and there are many complaints about them squeaking. SPC and Moog joints will outlast any uniball and are highly considered for their endurance.

    Reservoirs increase oil capacity and separate gas which significantly helps with heat efficiency allowing you to run faster and longer. You may not need reservoirs but I would rather have them and not need them, then blow a shock or have shock fade.

    NP. I help where I can.

    I believe the BFG guy at the expo said they were making tires for heavier trucks like duallys..the old bfg’s supposedly weren’t holding up to the heavier weight and loads so they made some changes to adapt to people wanting to run them on their 250’s and 350’s so they would last as they are supposed too..

    Thanks, that's very useful. I'm guessing that I should just stick with the lighter tread being that my truck isn't half the weight of a 350?

    C’s are ok all around..If you are going to be on rocks often or difficult trails I would run E’s.E’s are heavy and will suck up a little more gas also..

    A little more research and you would see you can get the same lift from @HeadStrong Off-Road for less. :wink:

    Besides the front and rear shocks themselves, what other pieces would comprise "a full King 2.5 lift kit with Dakar leaf springs"? What other add-on pieces are required to make it all work well?
