Default Suspension Update

Well got my new belltech street performance shocks on and installed my Caltracs traction bars but had to take them off when I had clearance issues, have to take the truck in Monday to my mechanic to fix the helper spring clearance issue. Looks like my right helper spring is hanging down at a steeper angle than the left side and is hitting the traction bar. But when I did drive around the block in it it felt so much better! Night and day over stock. No body roll nice and responsive on the throttle and no more wheel HOP!!! A combination of new shocks and traction bars will do that. But I didn't stop there! Just ordered front and rear hellwig anti sway bars with energy suspension bushings and sway bar links... When I get those done I'll post pics. One good thing about the traction bars being all scratched up from the clearance issue is that I get to paint them a silver color from the gloss black they came as. Love the black but honestly you can't really see them they just blend in so silver it is!
