taken strait from camburgs website regarding their titan coilovers..."With the

inverted design we are able to gain wheel travel over the competition." ive

been a bicycle mechanic for some time now, and inverting a coilover shock

really does nothing on bikes except for posing possible contact issues. also,

"their" coilovers seem aweful similar to the SAW coilovers. im just curious

because i have been researching which way i want to go with my suspension

for the past year or so. but i think i finally figured it out, but this leads me to

my next set of questions...i have an 05 CC OR big tow and ive heard that

deaver spring packs are similar to the stock ones, and replacing them would

be like wasting more money than needed. also, since i work at a bicycle shop

there is a chance i could get fox coilovers at an EP price, but i have heard

mixed reviews of these shocks, why? and one last question, i promise, what

size shocks would i need in the rear if i were to go fox? i would want piggy

backs but i guess all i need to know is the shock stroke (i could figure out

overall length on my own)for pretty much a stock heigth titan. (although i

might want to add the prg mini lift blocks out back if the front ends up too

tall)

any and all help is appreciated!

I believe they invert it in order to use a longer shock. If you look at how they mount, the bolt is up higher through the stock shock tower. I believe with the extra travel you need to get the upper a-arm as well. Yes, the coilovers are SAW shocks. If you can get fox's you could make your own setup. It would require some custom machined spacers for the lower pivot, and you would have to make your own upper mount. Then you will be valving, revalving, then revalving to get it as dialed in as these companies have. You also will probably play around with your spring rate. Radflo makes some, and I have DR's that I bought used, and havent put them on yet. So I cant tell you any real world experience, but there are several mfg's to chose from. I am thinking about selling the DR's if your interested.

Flipping the shock itself does nothing. But SAW is able to put the mounting hat on top of the coilbucket with the flipped shock instead of inside the coilbucket like other on the market. That allows for about 1 inch more bump travel.

The 4wd springs don't need as much help as the 2wd...
2wd with BT, go with the Deaver mini-pak...
Fox makes good shocks, but the SAW's (and the Radflo's I think)thru Greg are custom valved to his spec's which make all the difference!

Fox coilovers for the Titan are an emulsion shock, stay away.

thanks for the replies, that pretty much answered all of my questions except

for the rear shock stroke. i would like to make it so i get better quality travel,

but not necesarily more of it. so im not looking at gaining the most possible

wheel travel out of this, but i definitly want something that would be able to

work in case i wanted to raise the rear of the truck another 2" at most, i like

to keep things practicle :)

thanks again!
