    He is running coil overs.
    You are running coil overs.

    These are not coil overs (notice, coil not "over" shock, those are bumps in the coil):

    That doesn't mean it isn't the frame when you jack the truck up even at the LCA you are removing all load on the UCA. It's either the UCA bushings, wheel bearings, or frame flex.

    You should start fresh man I never advise extended stock arms or plate them to death this is pretty haggard.

    This is what you should shoot for

    Coilovers imply that the spring is mounted to the shock, it appears from the pictures (to me at least) that they aren't connected but that the shock still lives inside the spring.

    :eek:I noticed the wack UCA when he posted the pic, then realized this is a homemade death trap, so many things that are wrong, just really wrong...

    Like others have stated, I would refuse a ride...with that kind of extra strain something is bending under load...wondering if the OP has wheeled this hard yet, I have my doubts about the first jump, large bump/boulder/crevasse etc...

    OMG:eek:

    Initial Coil spring suspension had the coil mounted next to the shock (ie the "not a coil over" pic). Any suspension with a coil mounted over the shock (ie stock suspension) is a "coil over" suspension. That pic can be dissieving due to the bump stops mounted inside the coil.

    Either way, I was initially just trying to be a small dick, not make this a discussion... :)

    On topic, OP i think your issue is your springs are sagging; stiffer springs should help. Im hesitant to give this advice as the REAL issue is your setup is ghetto. You ever jump this? I hope not...

    That is the sketchiest LT job I have ever seen and why would you not get proper parts for it, fabtech for coilovers seems sketchy as well

    unless youre a professional, youre not going to see if youre frame is fucked. if you havent carfaxed it, do that too. more than likely previous owner crashed it, fucked up the front end, then used the existing parts to create the mongoloid lt kit you now have. buying a proven kit probably wont help if your frame is fucked.
