Thanks for info. Where did you purchase Bilsteins? Did you pull your resonators? And did you keep factory tips? Thanks

Welcome!

I went with the HBS kit. For me it was much more budget friendly that the Bilsteins.

Exhaust, that's a wide open area there. Budget? Level of acceptable noise? A catback kit and y-pipe would yield the best numbers, especially when combined with a cold air intake and a programmer.

I would go with the rancho QuickLift Loaded, it levels the vehicle and unlike the billsteins it comes with the springs. I found them at Truck Customizers for $173 plus free shippimg.

My bilstens were 232 or close for all four shipped from Shockwarehouse and they give a discount if you call and mention ramforumz. I also went with the tgc rear 2.25 inch springs. Lifted the truck and leveled it. It still has a rake. But when I'm towing it level as can be. I bought my whole lift for 400. Installed for free.
