    :headbang:Nice fixing to start ordering now. I think I may go with the 2" aal since I seen your measurements. And plus I haul a bout and trailer alot so I don't wanna be sagging when I pull it.

    Nice truck, mine's nearly the same!

    Lil - My billy kit is on the way, been reading a lot about how on many first gens the rear's are meant to be shaft-down as the reverse of that causes the shock body to rub the leaf/may not even be able to install. If memory serves, this isn't an issue on second gens, and the shock itself will still function normally.

    *edit and there's also debate about the benefits of shaft down as while yes it will see more road debris, the shaft is stronger then the body so having the body higher up, away from rocks etc. helps keep it clear of dents and dings. Also, debris will have a tougher time sticking to the seal area due to our friend gravity.

    OP, you do know that many accidents happen in dealer lots every day. There is a certain money amount that is set to where if it doesnt exceed that amount it is never put on history and the dealers are usually hush hush about it.

    Also, I forgot that the 1st gens had the difference with the rear billes. Oh well mine are boot up but thats just me. I've always though that the boot goes up and thats for any make. My dad's F150 is the same and so is my bro but thats also Ford so IDK :D

    Anyways, Nice Truck. GET TIRES!!!! :D
