im about to lift my 2005 kingcab in a month or two, just seein what some people thought may be the best lift to pick to get a 6". I was leaning towards pro comp or cst. Any thoughts would help. Its not gonna be a heavy offroader, maybe the occasional trail ride and a lil mud.

CST lift would definately be the way to go even though it isn't a 6" lift. I have a CST lift and I beat mine pretty hard and have no troubles with it. People with Pro Comp lifts always post about having problems with it on the ROAD! Do you have a 2x4 or 4x4?

If you have a 2wd, you can get the PRG 4" Spindle Pkg. and add any of the stock height application coilovers for 2" more lift. You will also need the CST carrier bearing drop bracket, (any rear lift > 2" on a 2wd requires them), and probably different, taller blocks than what comes with the pkg. Rear shocks come with the package and PRG sells different lengths, for at least very close to the same price.

There are three stock application coilovers to choose from, all of which will provide the last 2" to 2.5" of lift, on top of the 4" from the spindle. The least expensive is the Radflo 2" diameter body, then the new PRG spec 2.5" body Sway-A-Way, (SAW), and finally the 2.5" body Donahoe Racing, (DR or DRE), coilover. Any of these will dramatically improve your Titan's handling in stock or spindle lift applications.

The coilovers that come on the bracket lifts, (if provided), are said to be inferior. If you go the bracket route, you can get other models of the Radflo and SAW spec'd by PRG, (so buy the bracket lifts without coilovers, and upgrade them with some from PRG). I believe the bracket lifts have less ground clearance than the spindle lift, but I might be wrong ... and the differential clearance is determined by tire diameter.

To see the PRG 4" Spindle Package click on the link in my sig. It is the first pkg. (mine is the second pkg. but you can see a pic of the DR coilover in the second pkg.). I would get the SAW if I was buying today since it is spec'd and put together by PRG, although I love my DRs. Note: The SAW of the second pkg. requires aftermarket UCA, but the stock application one that I suggested for your application doesn't.

Not all of his products are shown on his website, PRGproducts.com, but if you call him, he will build you up a package for your individual application ... bracket, 2wd spindle, or just shocks. Greg's number: 951.780.5331

Pro comp lift here no problems whatso ever. I don't run the sway bar though, it was easy to install, looks awesome. My vote Procomp Stage 1.

i like that 4" package for my 4x4 but i think i would want to go a little higher. could i still put a block in the rear and get the leveling kit for up front and get 6" out of the front and make it level to the rear.

If you have a 4x4 and want 6" you have to go with a bracket lift. The maximum for a 4x4 with the PRG 4" Performance Package is about 3.75". If you're willing to grind away your coil buckets and sacrifice droop, the top part of the DR coilovers can be flipped, for about 5". Level kit spacers are not to be used with the coilovers, and you would also loose droop if they worked.

The 2wd spindles are different, in that they leave everything basically stock, they are not just spacers, and can't be used on a 4x4.

I unfortunately am still riding on the stock coilovers. I'll be upgrading to SAW's come springtime.

I do NOT have the OR package, but the springs are the same, regardless.

I personally think the Fabtech is nice because you can get more lift later with Radflos and spacers :D sacrifices droop again probably, but gets more lift on a 4wd than a standard 6" kit I believe :D hope that helps
