Yes, on the spindles.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:ok this question is for greg or hooligan mainly, and anyone else who is a suspension guru, you can throw in your thoughts too. let me just start off by saying that i'm a complete suspension noob. basicallyi want a kinda mild lift for now, i eventually plan on getting the mid-travel kit from greg, but that won't be for a while, so until then, here's what i wasthinking, tell me what you think or what you'd change if anything or if there's anything i might be leaving out...fyi i have a cc 4x2
4" cst spindles
Mall rats only ... IMO06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:2.5" spacer
I know at some point of rear lift on a 2wd you need a carrier bearing, but don't know what that point is, but 4" spindle and minimal pre-load on the mid-length PRG valved SAWs is about 5" front, so 2.5" PRG/Deaver mini-pak might be enough for best prerunning.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:looks like maybe the 2.5" deavers in the rear
maybe a 1" or 2" block and carrier bearing if needed
Of course.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:prg uca's
As mentioned, 2.5" PRG valved mid-length SAWs for the front, and either the 2" Radflo reservoirs or the 2 1/4" SAW reservoirs in the rear. I believe both are valved or spec'd by PRG. My impression based on comments by PRG in posts, is the SAWs might be a bit firmer, and might have more travel, but Greg can clarify, and I think about the same $.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:i'm thinking either saw's in the front and either saw's or 2.0 or 2.5 radflo res in the rear (not really sure on which of these setups i should go with, any input is greatly appreciated)
No on 18x9, 5 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern Here's why first, our bolt pattern is 6 on 5.5, a.k.a. 6 on 139.7 mm, (the first number is the amount of lug nuts). Second, for prerunning, well for anything I can think of, you want 17" rims. All of those listed below will most likely require the pinch-weld-mod.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:Pro Comp Extreme Alloy Series 7089 wheels Specs: 18x9, 5 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern; Backspace = 4.75 in
not sure on tires, kinda a toss up between these, and if they would fit or not:
ProComp Xtreme A/T 325/65/18
Toyo Open Country A/T 325/60/18
Either the Nitto Terra Grappler 325 or 355/65/18, not sure if the 355 will fit or not though
basically the tires are still up in the air, any suggestions as to what would fit better? i don't mind if they stick out some to give it a more aggressive stance
7089-7938* 17x9 6x5.5 -6mm 4.75" (*depending what it's hub centric on)
7089-7983 17x9 6x5.5 -6mm 4.75"
Or if your tires will allow for an 8" width rim ... these will stick or about 3/4" less than the 9" rims:
7089-7838* 17x8 6x5.5 0mm 4.5" (*depending what it's hub centric on)
7089-7883 17x8 6x5.5 0mm 4.5"
Tires tough and very heavy ... the Toyo MT in a 83 lb. 35x12.5x17 (9" rim"), or a 73 lb. 33.5" 295/70/17 on a (8" rim).
Nitto (made by Toyo and probably heavy too), Terra Grappler AT 34" 305/70/17. (8" rim). Or LT325/70R17 (35x13x17 on a 9" rim).
BFG AT KO 315/70/17 at 64 lb. a fuel economy tire, (relatively speaking), (OEM GM spec, H2 I think) 34.5" diameter (8" rim).
Don't forget to check out the American Racing Thug in an 17x8.5" rim with Teflon dark coating.06_SMOKE_SE_CC said:anyway, i think that's all the stuff i'm looking at, any opinions, suggestions, or anything else anyone can help me out with as far as this setup goes, or if there's anything i could change in this setup to make it any better?
