    Really, this is a vague question. best for what and what is your definition of "suspension system''? Just shocks, or things like UCAs and even mid travel kits? I'll need some clarification and i think there needs to be more systems added to the poll before i vote too.....

    thats not really a fair comparison as pro comp makes mid grade stuff for both the front and the back

    if you want the BEST suspension system...you need to first decide if youre going to be doing on road, trail riding, crawling, or desert running...

    from there one "top notch" kit is going to be awesome but another one may suck depending on the application

    I have full OME setup and love it. I couldn't be happier with the way the truck rides, other then the vibrations I have to work out, and it will pack a hell of a lot more then stock. The rear springs flex really good as well.

    Walker Evans Racing suspension is SHIT. Don't waste your money.

    I had WER coils/shocks for about a year..and that's about how long they lasted.

    Shock bodies were rusted, they ate shock heims (I put 3 full sets on them in just a year's time) they rattled, and the coils don't clear the swaybar like advertised. Plus, I had a hell of a time just getting the right shock hats for them. I ordered the tall, they sent me the shorts, I called to explain, they sent me another set of shorts. I called again and finally got a tall set...that they charged me for twice.

    Their a-arms are good, Rear springs are OK. They give good flex and don't sag a great deal, but the finish on them is shit too. I have to paint then about once a month to keep the rust in check.

    My advice...Buy a full OME setup or go full retard and put Icons or Fox's under it with Alcans or Deavers out back. Anything else is a waste of time, money, effort and frustration.

    I have voted allpro, but allpro is a vendor. The setup I'm looking at is Fox 2.0 front and new leafs with fox resi in the back.
