thanks for the intel, i was wonderin how was your setup right before your lt build?taknitezX2 said:i got both from a previous owner, although they were un-used, but new they run you bout 1200 for the coilovers and 600ish for the bumps.
thats cool were you able to jump with it? are your new coilovers 10" long?taknitezX2 said:that last thing i had goin was a procomp lift spindle with a 2.5''x10'' king smoothy shock with custom hoops.
i can biuld the enginecage/shock tower and im pretty confident i can build my own tuffer lower a arms, but the shocks i would need a coilover and a resi right, how long are your coilovers?taknitezX2 said:Hey Hey, Froaders got u goin in the right direction.
Now on a more serious note, if ur just looking to jump...well...ur an idiot. good way to give ur expo a short life, just drive it off a cliff. Moreso, what the other guy said is not quite right. Upgrading you shock will be good offroad, but it wont help u "Jump". neither will adding a resi. all they do is hold large amounts of nitrogen, and as the shock is working, IE. doing long, fast runs through the desert, they keep the shock cool, and working optimally without heating up and fading. They do nothing to help bottoming out, thats called valving which is a whole nother topic. just a brief FYI for ya. there is some good info on www.dezertrangers.com , just dont ask gay "newbie" questions. use the search or you will be stoned. also the classifieds at www.racedesert.com have many good parts.
hey,,,i was leaning towards a 4x4 conversion sas, but may not be necessary, since i live closer to jumps than rocks to crawl. so i am back to the idea of long traveling my 2wd a-arm expotaknitezX2 said:not that i dont trust your fab skill, but design of a suspension part is very complex. what exactly are you looking to do with your truck. what is your budget and what are you goals ur looking to get performance wise. PM me please, to keep the thread from clogging up. thanks.
i was wonderin how long are your coilovers, and could you ask have your fabricater make some lowers on the side?/how muchtaknitezX2 said:got the front limit straps mounted today, bumper painted, and lights rewired. its just about locked and loaded.
kool is the national 13 leaf pack just as good as deavers? and if your shock hoop is in yet are you sealing the hole with somethin where the shocks go thru?taknitezX2 said:rear limit straps now mounted. yeah. 15'' front bump/straped, 14'' rear bump/strap.
