Let's see pics of the entire truck with the new front and rear lift
I do know it’s possible to adjust height wise I just have yet to have any time to do so.
So question with fox shocks pn BDS88302073....
What’s the highest setting they can achieve and still perform well?
Say I’m currently running a ProComp 6” lift kit with bilstein 5100s at .7”...........roughly how much higher could I set these in comparison? To my current setup.
My main goals are:
1) more ride height
2) better performance
3)get rid of the current top hat spacer most 6” lifts come with
I guess 2&3 kinda go together though.
Not sure about ride height yet. I’ll be playing with the heights soon and will post back here. I do know they offer better performance, and yes they do get rid of the spacer up front. I was surprised about how big that spacer actually is when they pulled it out to put the coilovers on.
If thats with the 5” rear coils then the fox coilover must have given you about 7-1/2” lift in front, looks great
I have not yet had the 5” coil kit installed yet. This is still with the stock springs and rear spacer.
I will get that done in a few weeks. This next week will be replacing at least the end links, sway bar, and panhard bar. I sent replacement compression struts and the hellwig sway bar to core 4x4 and they are coating them to match their house color.
One thing I’m pondering still is if it’s worth while to get a new tire and wheel setup. I was looking at the AEV rims which actually have a positive offset and are 18x8.5. Advertised to “perfectly fit a 35x12.5 tire underneath a 6” lifted ram”.
My current setup is 17x9 with 35” tires but I’m having to run a 2” spacer to clear the knuckle up front. Shame on me for not checking before buying rims.
Your lift actually says 18” is smallest and requires 5” backspace or less, the AEV is 5.23 so you still might need a small spacer
Oh damn. Wouldn’t want that mistake twice. I’ll have to make some phone calls and see. Know anyway around that?
another small spacer to push the wheel out
What size tire are you going to put on them, 18x8.5 is a narrow wheel and could be too narrow for the tire recommendations
