    As soon as I grow a money tree the mods will be coming
    If I'm not mistaken that is a hefty price difference!

    well it depends how much preload you put on them, being a 4x4 and having to worry about CV angles, i probably wouldnt go over 2.5-3". at that point i would consider some aftermarket UCAs to keep your alignment in check. also remember that the more preload you put on the coilovers(the higher you go) the worst the ride will be. i had my SAW coilovers set at about 2.5" and it was pretty squirly but not too bad. now that i have camburg spindles i took all the preload out and they right so much nicer! stay at around 2.5" :cool:

    Not the best photo but its all I have right now. Icon suspension with the Icon AAL and LR UCA. I love it. I have it set at the Icon factory specs up front. Rubs a little with the 285's in reverse but nothing big. Pay the money up front so you don't have to mess with it later. DownSouth is place to go too.
