    So I put a Total Chaos kit on front of truck and only had money to buy the coilovers and not the bypass shocks yet. Finally sold old lift kit so I have some funds now. Should I buy the bypass shocks and strengthen up the front end some more or save the money to by a leaf spring under kit for tye rear? I'm looking into the DMZ set up. What do you think?

    I would personally finish the front first given the options.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. Hate not finishing I started. I just know I won't get a chunk of money like this for awhile.

    IMO, front more important. I'd rather have a solid front end and a stock rear end than a half assed front and rear.

    Good point. I'm thinking strengthening up mounting points for both UCA anf LCA, as well as shock towers to keep the camber from going out due to suspension. Any other points u think I should look into for a prerunner type of truck?

    Cr250Jumper is running just coil overs up front and has his sua started and seems to be getting good results with it. Being you now have the bypasses you can take some time to plan out the rear...as we discussed over lunch :wink:
