    Hi all,

    new to this forum but I'm getting pretty confused the more I look into suspension. I need to throw new suspension all around my truck and I don't know what to buy. so far ive got fox 2.0 front and rear and an icon add a leaf for the rear but I'm unsure if I'm missing parts. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome!

    Depends what all you need on your truck, maintenance wise.

    I say this because what falls under maintenance sometimes, tends to blow people away.

    For instance, are your upper and lower control arm bushings up to snuff? Sway bar end links? Upper and lower ball joints? Steering rack bushings?

    Seeing as how you're going to pull your leaf pack, make sure you've got bushings to replace for those shackles if they're old. It's imparative that you get yourself a new set of u-bolts as well for your leaf pack since you don't want to reuse them.

    Hope this starts to steer you in the right direction.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Spend time reading through the first Generation Section!

    Just what is your end game What are we working on year, mileage and drive train. Where the Truck has lived ?

    Frame inspected in good shape?

    This plays into account on all your maintenance..

    Start with the Lower Ball Joints !

    Good Luck!

    truck is clean, just needs to add suspension all the way around because I haven't gotten to that yet, im assuming I need front/ rear shocks add a leaf in the back diff drop kit... just don't know if im missing anything. I want to keep my UCA's because they are still good, ball joints we're recently replaced.

    It really depends how much you want to throw into it. Recently installed the complete OME setup from Wheeler's and am very happy. If you want to get an idea of everything you might need - I'd look at that kit and piece together from there.

    Also replaced hardware/bushings where I could as well. Added some cost but one of those things that's worth it in my opinion.
