    I'll let you know when I put the Chevys on. FYI 10" travel + an extended brake line would help with my mix n match leaf pack. But I ran stock shocks and brake line ok, down side was the shocks were my limiting factor at droop and my brake line was tight.

    Hey Gian I just went out and flexed my leaves and found out if you have extended bump stops you can get by with stock length stuff.

    That should be about it. Tires might rub at full stuff (mine did).

    Yeah about the BPV. I made a longer bracket that helped out. I might even be willing to make another. :D
