    I got some knockoff weather mats off of Amazon for 20 bucks, they're pretty generic and you may have to trim them some to fit but they get the job done. Mine have held up well and they see a lot of dirt.

    Lol. I have to leave that to the car wash guys. I'm kind of a clean freak so I can't clean the truck it takes me forever. Way too detailed about it.

    Holy hell, didn't give that part a thought about the CAT? @Nicklovin Nick, there should be 2x O2 sensors B1S1 and B1S2 (bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 1 sensor 2... before and after the CAT, respectively), which code did it say it was?

    Help please! Lol hi guys...soooooo I got my new kings and I installed them on my truck. The came with a 2 inch lift setting on them. It was a struggle to get them on. I had to pry down the lower control arm to get the lower bolt in. I tried to adjust them and I can't get to the holes in the coil over because the upper control arm is blocking them. I'm concerned I'm going to drive to work tomorrow and something is going to happen. Has anyone put coil overs like mine on stock control arms? Any suggestions? Am I just being a pussy? Lol. I called 4 wheel parts and they told me 400 to adjust them. Totally rape. Can you please help me?

    I have install king co's on a 1st gen with stock uca's. King says their coilovers aren't meant to be adjusted on the truck. It's a bitch. I've adjusted them but had to make two wrenches with varying angled handles to get a full rotation out of the upper collar.. are you trying to lower the front?

    I want $100 per wheel. I'd prefer to sell the one in the box first, just mounted a tire on the other one in case I need another full size spare

    Yeah I'm trying to drop the front to either 1 inch or stock height. I drove it up and down the street and it seemed ok but I just don't want to get on the freeway and have a failure

    Being honest, I have no experience with coil overs and it just seems like the ball joints are pressed kind of tight. Maybe I'm just freaking out for no reason

    Jack the front up from the frame and check your clearances around everything(it will need to be jacked up like this to adjust the c/o's well. You don't want to adjust the spring under the trucks weight. Too much risk of the coil carrier jumping the threads). If you have clearance your good. It will also probable settle .5-1 inch. I want to say your 100% good, but am hesitant as I can't be their to visually inspect the rest of your install, but if everything is correctly installed then you are 100% good with the amount of lift it has. Even if you lowered the spring it won't shorten your coil stroke any, so the extended length of the shock will still be the same and pose the same issues with over extending things at full driop
