    Finally got my truck aligned after suspension install yesterday. Was messing around with the suspension and noticed a clunk under max down travel. I assume this is normal as i believe the shock is bottoming out internally, however would like to confirm. Thoughts? See description in video for more details.

    I does wonders for melting dirt stains off of the rubber even without agitating with a brush.

    Mine doesn't do that. I don't think your truck is getting max down travel in that video.

    Part #2407 Firestone Ride Rite Springs - $390
    Labor for install - $160

    Another option is Air Lift. They cost less and I've heard they are fine. The reason I went with the Ride Rite was that they mount above the axle, and that made the most sense to me. You can go with two air lines or a "T" configuration. I'd recommend two air lines to give you more control.

    I used this spray paint. I think I did like 3 coats of paint. It came out really nice.

    I have such a hard time deciding to like these types of posts or not. I mean I like reading other people's stories but I don't like when other people's stuff fails so... online life is just so damn hard. Lmao

    Ah ha! Yes, I heard something about the Metra lacking the metal brackets that the Scosche has, but if you an easily repurpose the OEM ones, that seems sensible.

    So, is it a matter of screw off brackets from ORM and screw them on to existing holes on Metra, or is this a PITA to do?

    Edit: just re read that post, sounds like simple R&R. Thanks for the tip!

    Low 30s. I think it might be vibration too honestly. It’s very intermittent, but I only see it when it’s cold. I may have to go back and double check my connections.

    I have an e-Rapta one. Kind of on the cheaper side on Amazon, so that could explain my issues too. This one:

    Me too, and I have a hard time liking the crash posts I hate to even see those...

    Good luck with the scan.
    Get a cheap bluetooth ob2 off Amazon/ebay and check codes and other functions etc yourself at home with your phone.

    Saves me from driving over to my brothers and borrowing his scan tool
