xopt1js, I live in Thunder Bay which is about 1000 miles north of you at the northern tip of lake superior! I paid 487 and some change to my door, and like i said I ordered in the afternoon on Wed and Fri morning at 11am they were here. I talked with Gordon Barr about what I wanted and he seemed very knowledgable and helpful. In fact he told me at first to just get the fronts as my truck is still new but after talking with him and telling him I tow a boat and haul a quad in the box he said the rears stiffer valving might be better for me. If you want his number just pm me I'm not sure about the rules Re. posting links or numbers. I'll let you know how I like them later once they're on and the truck realigned

Well I got the kit on today and put about 75km on it. Had it up to 140 kph and absolutly no vibration. tried 2wd auto 4wd and the only vibration i had was in the back lane from a stop with the wheels turned a bit if I spun the tires I would get a slight vibration but I think That will happen with any 4wd spinning the tires. The ride quality is I'm happy to report excellent. Just slightly firmer but in no way would I consider it harsh in fact I love it! I took a pic of the half shaft and their is now a slight angle to them but not much at all. sorry no before pic of shaft. The measurments were 36" and 38 3/4" front and rear from garage floor to fender well before and 38 1/4 and 38 3/4 after, one half inch of rake I can live with!! overall I am extremely happy with the kit. Truck is dirty because it is very slushy here last couple of days and this is after I came off the highway from testing...first pic is before kit

Looks really good, I like the new stance :rep:

Crash 11-24-2010 08:42 PM

Thank You for the rep boost deputy! You know, the raked front end bothered me from the first day I got the truck, I just wasn't sure how I was going to get rid of it. The shock kit Seemed like the proper way to fix it. I'm sure glad I did it now.
