OK,
I'm looking at replacing the front struts in another 10,000......Gotta let the wife get comfortable again since I just got new wheels & tires. However, I'm starting to research new struts and shocks. I'd like to go with coilovers cause they look bada$$, but they are pricey.
What I wanted to know is if it's worth it to buy coilovers, if you stay with the OEM UCA's???
Didn't want to spend $1500-$1600 to replace both parts......My truck's not a road queen, it does plenty of off-raod duty at the ranch, but no high speed jumps(YET) like a Raptor would in the Baja.....

Also, if I did go with coilovers and the OEM UCA's, would it still be $800 better than say the OEM length Bilstein 5100 leveling struts with the ProComp bracket extensions? What has been the consensus?

Thanks for your input,

You can get stock replacement length Coils that would not change the ride height and would not need an upper arm swap. you could also get extended length coil overs and lose that Spacer from the ProComp kit but over all if you get properly valved Coil overs it will be a a big difference and well worth it So no its not over kill (my Opinion)

No, not overkill. Keep in mind that they are rebuildable, so you don't throw them away when they leak, like ordinary shocks.

Yeah, I've been thinking about going with the extended length Sway-A-Way's from PRG, that are compatible with my ProComp 6" bracket lift. A buddy ofmine has them on his new Pro4x and was pleased with the ride.

not over kill at all. Much better ride and as mentioned above they are rebuildable.

SInce you have a bracket lift you would just need the bracket lift saws or radflos and not need the uca for now

Last time I talked to Greg/PRG he said the SAW's (Sway-aways) were on deep back order. I have the internal rez 2.5" radflos and love them. I too have the pro comp bracket lift and the ride is pretty nice! I'm never happy so I am returning the internal rez radflos and having greg extend them with a longer shock... also new PRG UCA cause taxes were good to me :)
