Any recommendations while im in there?

Im getting geared up too do some suspension work on my 07' titan in the next two weeks and was wondering if you guys had any ideas about anything else i should change out while i have the truck up with the wheels off.

What Im already going to be doing:

Leveling kit (2.5" front, 1" back)

Camber bolts

5100 front and rear shocks

1.5 wheel spacers/adapters

Any ideas would be much appreciated and any advice for a clean install on what i'm already doing would be great too.

Thanks in advance

Re: Any recommendations while im in there?

your going to need upper control arms if your trying to put a 2.5" spacer in, also some extended sway bar endlinks, and might as well throw in some longer bump stops so you don't over compress the struts and blow them out.

Actual spacer size is 1.5 so i think ill be good. 2.5" is the the "proprosed lift".

any recommendations on the where to pick up the bump stops?

should i do the pinch weld mod? im sticking to 285/70/17 tires but im worried with the wheel spacer/adapter they will rub.

Re: Any recommendations while im in there?

the spacer thickness does NOT = the new added height.

bump stops, PRG or Summit Racing.
RC claims that their 2" level kit does not require UCA`s, but I installed them anyway for the added camber. I also did not want to grind the lip off the OEM UCA. new RC uppers bam easy peasy. but you have choices depending on your needs. I`m 2wd so didn`t need hard core uppers.

Re: Any recommendations while im in there?

Depending on mileage you might want to change out the wheel bearings/hub assembly. Mine were shot on one side at about 93K miles.
