alright i know i can get around 2 inces from cranking the torsion bars but everyone tells me to stay away from it b/c its harder on your truck. is their anything besides that to get some more articulation

i am *** but i just wanna know what i can do after that
alright ass clown you know i am....just wanted to see my options after that. i would love to get a straight front axle but at my age you cant really afford that sort of work
haha wow this was a really old post. nah im not gonna do it. this summer ill most likely be putting on the 6.5" dick cepek series II kit
hey man thanks for the info and all but this post is REALLY REALLY old. ill be getting the 6" RCD lift in a couple of months
i like the design of using lift spindles rather than dropping the whole differential 6", sturdier set up in my opinion and a lot of other ppl as well. i like the dick cepek and all but i like RCD more :bigthumb:
ya i agree with subs here. in my opinion i think the wear on your suspension is from those 38x14.50s you have. ill only be running a 35x12.50 so i shouldnt have near as much wear and tear as you will. i know there will be stuff that goes out but thats just what comes with a lifted truck. i dont have time to wheel a whole bunch but i do some and my truck will be capable of what i want to do with my IFS on there. at this point with lifts ya a straight axle would out perform an IFS in some places but i read in a recent petersons that companies are working and trying to design some pretty extreme IFS kits giving anywhere between 12-15" of travel. PRETTY AWESOME!! i know a lot of ppl preach SFA but IFS isnt really that bad. if i did go straight axle id have to wait a LONG time before i could lift my truck or i could do my lift in a couple of months and still be able to do what i want to do with it
hahaha alright ive started the suspension lift fund for my truck :silly: if youre interested in helpin out a fellow PS member sned me a PM and ill tell you where to mail the money!! haha in all honesty i dont think i could justify spending that much money when i dont wheel a ton, but ill still be accepting all donations
im getting the lift....its a 6" RCD :bigthumb: its either get my lift and tires in a couple of months or wait like a year or more. there is also a possibility of me getting a different truck in 2 or 3 years so why dump a ton of money in this one. with my lift and tires i will be able to do just about everything i want to do
its not totally paid for. theres just a CHANCE that i could get a newer truck in better condition. haha im not sure if yall are still trying to talk me into a SAS but its not happening, i dont have that kind of funds so RCD here i come!!
the thing i read about the long travel suspension kits was just a small article near the end of a recent petersons. they dont have any info on the kits at all, all they know is that they are in the process of trying to get them to the public
