    What’s up everyone.

    I have been in contact with someone through messaging and he’s been offering me some deals on suspension set ups. Some of these brands I’m familiar with and some I am not. I honestly had planned to just do bilstein 5100 front and rear on stock set up because all I currently NEED is a little lift to even out the truck. I do not tow or do any crazy off roading. 95% highway and city driving. But, for $400 plus install for 5100s, I felt that was a simple set up.

    Below are some images of what they are offering me and the prices associated. Are any of these a honest good deal with the parts and brands used. Or is it something I can probably get at this deal anytime

    Icon stage 1 shocks and coils only with spanner wrench
    $1350

    Or am I just better off sticking with 5100s and staying simple for my intended use. I will not be using any wheel spacers unless I have to

    Set up is as follows
    Mamba m25 17x9 -12 offset
    Falken wildpeak 265/70/17
    (new wheels and tires arrive in week and half)

    You don’t need a lift or spacers for those tires. Not sure about the wheel measurements but the tire size is fine. 5100 lift with stock coils to level the truck is all you need and will serve your purpose flawlessly

    That’s what I thought too. I figured I was trying to be lured into a full set up without needed it right now. This is my first time ima. Truck suspension upgrade. But I’ve built on cars so there’s lots of similarities so I thought that simple set up would be enough until I go to 285s in couple years.

    Thanks!
