Ok, so i am going to get a lift and i was going between a CST or Procomp. I t think i have decided one the Procomp lift. NOW the only thing is do i want to go stage 1 or 2? i have heard read alot of post saying to go stage 1 and get some fox , sway away or radflo coilover because the procomp coilovers crap out. Just wondering what some of you guys opinions are on the stage 1 or 2 and maybe the coilovers if i go stage 1. Im an content with the Promcomp price on the lift but dont want to spend a butt load then on getting coilovers. I am not gonna do any SERIOUS offroading, just trailriding and some mud once in awhile

*2.0 Radflo* 699 - PRG
*2.5 Radflo* 1249-PRG
*Fox* 1190-PRG
Price for Sway-A-WAY??????

PC Stage 1 and the SAW coilovers. They are $999 if memory serves. This is what I'll be upgrading to come springtime.

We have a new Sway-a-way coilover for the bracket-lifted trucks (CST, Fabtech, Procomp, Rancho). These will replace the coilovers on your stage 2 kit or the stock strut and the big coilspacer on lifted trucks. These run our own valving and are offered in a 2 or 4wd spring configuration. We will also offer a red or black Eibach spring. Pricing on these is $999 pr, free shipping.

Fox- will bolt onto any of the kits except Rancho (will work on Rancho w/ aftermarket UCA). These are an emulsion shock, meaning there is no internal or external reservoir. These are great shocks but all the others offer at least an internal res. which makes for more consistent damping. These also come with a CST spec'd spring, most users notice a lot of premature spring sag and these springs are too stiff for most 2wd. The springs can be upgraded but will cost an extra $200. These typically ride pretty smooth with fairly good bottoming resistance but not as good as the others. *** the extra price of better springs and these are by far the most expensive of the bunch.

Radflo 2.5" dia. coilovers- Im going to lump the internal and external reservoir versions into one group as they function the same on our titans. These offer more potential travel then the Fox if using an aftermarket upper a-arm and come with different Eibach springs for 2 or 4wd titans. Radflo is a custom shock manufacturer and builds these shocks for PRG Products and PRG then builds the upper mounts and supplies the springs and does the finally assembly. These are the smoothest riding of all the coilovers, with very good bottoming resistance. The internal res version are about the same price as the Fox, the external are about $150 more.

Sway-a-Way- These are built and valved for PRG products in the same way the Radflos are built for us. We order the shocks bare and built to a certain length and certain valving. We then provide the appropriate Eibach spring and do the final assembly. These are the most aggressively valved coilovers available. The ride is still great but is a bit more firm than the Radflos.

Procomp stage 2- As you can see im a big fan of the PC lift kit. But their coilovers have had many issues. Lately people seem to be happier with them and the price is good, but we don’t sell them because they are not serviceable and have a pretty checkered past. Thier mx-6 rear shocks seem good, and most people like them.

honestly. i really really doubt you will get the procomp stage 1 without coilovers whatsoever and be happy for more than a month. you'll be stealing and looting for some cash to buy some type of coilover. the system was just prone to bottoming out even under normal driving conditions. constant driving adjustments just to slow down for dips and bumps made it like driving a lowered car. buy some coilovers. trust me...

edit***unless you have some stock ranchos for the spacers to sit on. then that might be different..i dunno. but the stock 2wd struts that mine had were WHACK..

yeah i dont know if makes a difference that i have the OR package with the Rancho struts. No matter what i am up grading coilovers but i just dont know if i wanna go with the procomp stage 2 or use stage 1 and get some different brand coils

That's a no-brainer...do I have to repeat Greg again:

Go with the SAW's or Radflo's with the Stage 1 kit. You might as well upgrade the rear too, because the rear shocks that come with the kit are garbage:

I agree! But I cut him some slack 'cause it was about 2 weeks old in those pics and he had just got it back from Greg's the night before and washed it that day.
