    I've got about 60k on my 884's with small Toytec spacer and 1" block in the rear. The stock Billies have about 67k on them. I just purchased brand new Leeper coilovers from PTaco88 in the classifieds and am thinking about diving in and upgrading the rest of the suspension. I'm budget conscious but not thats not the end game.

    I am fairly happy with the ride of my truck but am optimistic of improved on and offroad performance.
    In addition to the coilovers I am currently planning on getting:

    - Camburg "Ball-Joint" UCA
    - Wheeler's 1.5" Lift 3 Leaf Progressive Add A Leaf Kit
    - IVD Remote Reservoir Rear Shock Set

    I really don't think I would maximize the additional cost of the Uni-Ball and don't have trust in the Built-Right arms for the price.

    I chose that add-a-leaf cause I really don't want my rear much higher than it is now, and the offroading I do is more of the high speed fire roads and stuff -so I am looking for something not too stiff and that can soak up dips etc

    As for the shocks, I am wondering if there are any other resi shocks out there to consider, I would really like to find something where the resi is piggy-backed. I like the looks of the Bilstein 5150 but my understanding is they only work with the 6" lift? Think its safe to say the FOX's are more than I want to spend.

    Haven't really seen much in the way of reviews for these parts. Anyone have feedback on these? Anyone go a different route in my shoes?

    Thinking wheelers is where I plan to purcahse it all from. Any specific peeps I should try and get in contact with there? Any forum discounts I should be aware of?

    Long post, thanks for reading

    The Fox's are the same price as the IVD rear resi's. I would go with TC UCA's too, but I am biased. I would also go with the u-bolt flip from All Pro.

    Oh wow, I was looking at them back in summer and it was 500 for the pair, they might have been on sale. and I think you can get the 5150's in any size you want, you just have to get pin to eyelet adapter like this one from TC.
