    Hey new to the forum but have browsed these forums since I have bought my truck and finally have some questions I cant find answers to. Im wanting to go with a mid travel setup front and rear because I cant justify ths cost of lt for where I live. Problem im having is, is it possible to have a low sitting truck with mid travel if you use stock spindles with gussets up front and is it possible to get some rear leafs like deavers with increased travel and low lift if none at all. Im trying to go with the corr or torx truck look if its possible. Any help is appreciated.

    For the front you would just need to have the coilovers set at 0 but make sure there is still tension on the coil. As for the rear, I'm not sure, add a leaf will lift you the least amount most likely. With all this said, you won't be able to run any larger tires and generally a new coilover is going to lift you no matter what.....So you could go for a leveled truck look? Or get a new deaver pack and have your coilovers cranked less so you get the rear end higher..

    King 10" coilovers w/ resi. 3.5" over long travel kit. Factory spindles w/ ALLPRO gussets. Total Chaos tower gussets. Energy Poly cab mounts and steering rack mounts. Glassworks fenders and bedsides. Home fabbed bed cage. King 2.5x16 bypass shocks in the rear. DMZ long travel rear end. Race radio (2meter). Removed secondary carbon air filter. Exhaust dumped before the axle / no muffler. Phram fresh air cabin filter. K&N replacement filter, After market stereo, Grillcraft grill, custom fabled roof rack with 7" HID's, PRP race seats.
    Just do coilovers up front set to 0" of preload (so she sits stock) and do nothing to the rear. The shocks are the limiting factor in the rear if you are using bolt in aftermarket shocks or stock bilsteins. A deaver pack would only give you a cushier ride, but no extra travel seeing as you won't have a bed cage with longer shocks. All the aftermarket leaf packs add atleast an inch of lift.
