    Hey guys, Sorry if this thread exists, I couldn't find it if so.

    I'm about to redo my suspension, but had some questions before I go resi's.

    Mainly, what if any issues can be expected over a regular extended CO? Lines rubbing or breaking, what is the wear expectancy? What issues have you owners experienced you didn't know you were in for? Any cons, anyone regret not going regular CO?

    I was looking for a thread with pictures of resi set ups and the ways they were mounted as well, please post here if you can.

    There are no issues. My Kings came with brackets for front and rear resis. Icon does the same as well as Fox.

    Either buy shocks with no rezzy and less performance, or go with piggyback style rezzys for the rear.

    FWIW, the hole is small and would go unnoticed if the shocks were removed. The hole location is in a no stress area.

    So I should offer this, "hey honey, I bought these cool shocks with rezzys for a heap of money so I can score bitches"

    Last mod my truck would ever see.

    Just don't tell her you spent a heap of money.... And leave off the part about the bitches.... In fact don't tell her you bought anything for your truck, I always just wait until she sees something new and asked when I got it. Then I'm just like, "Oh that? I've had that for a while..." :)
