    Just finished my lift and tire install. It looks like I will now need a rear lift. I was hoping to just level the truck since I have the TSB rear. Any suggestions on rear lifts?

    Also the All Pro instructions for the coilovers say to pre-load at 3.2" and 3.5" for 3" of lift. This is NOT correct!!!!! I set mine at 3" and had 4" of lift and NO give whatsoever. I now have it at 2" of pre-load and still needs to come down another 1". Any suggestions on adjusting the pre-load while on the truck is appreciated as I am having a tough time.

    Lift:
    -Walker Evans 2.5" Coilovers
    -All Pro Offroad UCA's

    Tires:
    -BF Goodrich All Terrain 265/75 r16

    I am looking at the Toytec or All Pro AAL. Do you know if I need longer U-Bolts from the Toytec AAL? I am also unsure if I will need axle shims and/or a carrier bearing drop.

    Thanks!! The install was free as I did it myself. The coilovers were around $900 and the UCA's were about $550. I don't remember the exact prices but I purchased them during the All Pro group but around September 2010.

    I will keep you posted. So far all I can say is they are super stiff but that's because I have too much preload.

    i've been running my front 2.0 WE COs for over 2 years and the 2.0 rears for almost the same.

    they will be replaced.

    ride like a tank and the coils are too close for my comfort. the 2.5s "appear" to be a better build. the way the 2.0 COs attach to the upper strut mount is flimsy and looks like a cheap way to make a shock work for a different vehicles use. i plan on rebuilding them for now, but they will get replaced.

    Good to know, maybe I'll go for the Fox 2.0''. Are you still happy with your UCA's?

    i've got the original AP 1" UCAs and they will get replaced too. they dont bring the alignment back enough caster and just personal preference. all of my AP stuff will get replaced except for maybe the rear diff skid and the rear leafs/u bolt flip.
