It went good had to fab up some pipe from work to help get the bushing housing out but everything went together a lot better than it came apart which was nice.

I have rancho 9000 rear shocks and love them but the rancho struts I had were absolute junk, over sprung and under damped. In my opinion stick with stock replacement struts or jump up to a coilover from fox, fabtech , king or other reputable company . I put dirt logics and uca's on in my driveway in two hours with little trouble. The ride offroad is worth it in my opinion.

Where'd you get your dirt logics from? I tried looking them up on their website, but couldn't really find them.

I don't remember what site because I've ordered from so many people, fabtech doesn't make stock length coilovers so you have to be 6" higher though.

The entry level fox 2.0 coilovers look really nice and can be used to level your truck. They are the most cost effective ones on the market.
