Dont think he posted it on this forum though, but he did have a shop fab it for him and he actually had them come through the holes that mount the license plate down and then had lock nuts lock the plate.
Quite genius if you ask me

Montreal and Toronto? it will depend on who you try to chat with....lol

But post those pics, I want to see them

How long was the drive?
drive was about 4 days, could have been shorter but bad traffic in DC coupled with dogs tha seemed to always have to go the damn bathroom cut my driving time pretty bad lol Pretty sure I could make it in 3 though, from Jacksonville to Sydney NS is 30 hours of driving roughly.

It was pretty ironic lol.

Andrew I intend to mount the air line fitting next to the license plate, in the plastic, here:



I think I may have recieved the incorrect kit, I'm going to have to talk to their customer support. The springs won't fit(too long) once the vehicle weight has compressed the springs. Here's a pic(unloaded, obviously lol). And next to the stock spring. Not sure if ever posted pics of the stock vs cut RT springs:
looks like your bags are a little on the short side for sure. The whole set up from what I hear is very simple though, and even running an empty bed with just 5psi in the bags (supposedly) will help the ride quality

^long actually, not short. Once the weight of the vehicle is on the springs they won't fit. It may be correct, I was just under the impression the air springs were supposed to be "unloaded", or "unsquished" at normal ride height/when unloaded. Doesn't seem like these will be that way. They are about an inch or two too long for that. Might be correct though, I dunno.

Yeah it's just so easy to take the springs out, that way you don't have to fight it and don't have to fight connecting the air line. Especially with the lower springs once you jack the back up they just fall out.

oh ya, the rear springs are cake, its the top of the shocks that are a bitch. I have to take the rear suspension apart when I get back to Florida, I think the drivers side rear shock is blown as that side sits lower than the passenger side even with an empty tank of gas. Lifetime warranty from Belltech so no biggie there, I just don't like the spongy feeling when I hit bumps the truck gets a bit out of shape. And for others reading, it's not a bad product from Belltech, I hit some really F'ed up roads on the way up here, there were some things I just couldn't avoid.

Well I installed the airlift kit. First of all, this is a great kit, really good quality. All the lines are run, and I followed what another member did and put them in wire loom to protect them. I can't believe I forgot to take a pic of the valve from the back of the truck lol, I'll have to post that later.

As far as if the springs are too long for my truck, I'm not sure. They seem to be. They seem "squished" in there. And it looks like they raised the rear end up about 1". So I'll probably pull them later and see if airlift will swap the air springs out for some shorter ones. Hopefully they will not give me a hard time.

What I don't understand is the guy I spoke with at airlift has the same truck with a rear lowering kit and used the same kit. And his fit fine.

I'll provide more feedback later...
