titrider, when we cruising out to the J-valley shack of yours again? had a blast out there!!! that's J-Valley in my sig when we had that SoCal offroad meet out there!!TitanRider said:No its in Johnson Valley. The vid was before the pics.
I also have bilsteins in the rear but the are probably worn out. The rear end just cant hang with the front end now, it just bottoms out and hucks the truck.
I am just simply effin amazed at how much the truck changed for offroading capabilities. Replacement coilovers and a-arms at least double the travel and I only have 2.5 inches showing of thread on the coilover.
Man I wish I was a titrider. lol I'm down for whenever. I bought the goodies off of djalex. He and I want to plan another offroad trip. Probably sometime after the baja 1000.hooligan said:titrider, when we cruising out to the J-valley shack of yours again? had a blast out there!!! that's J-Valley in my sig when we had that SoCal offroad meet out there!!
Here's a quick hint...I need any helpful advice when it comes to installing this baby.
You'll know what S.Steel washer/ring I'm talking when you see it!Awesome! Thanks for the advice fellas. One other thing if you don't mind; could one of you take a picture showing the connection of the new coils to the coil bucket and the "big stainless steel washer rings" I just want to make sure I don't screw something up. Thanks again fellas! Keep the helpful advice coming!!
Also, Greg told me to adjust the new coils to 1-3/4" pre load? Does this mean adjust it to 1-3/4" ride height, put the tires on, then lower the truck to get them "broken in", then adjust them to 2.5"?
I understand the preload adjustment. What I don't understand is do I adjust it to the 1-3/4", put the truck back down on the ground with the wheels on, the lift the truck back up, take off the wheels and adjust it to 2.5"? That's the only thing that's confusing me. Also, about the "hat" on the coilovers. The hat goes on top of the coilbucket? then the huge stainless steel spacer go beneath the coilbucket and I then tighten them down to get rid of that crush, correct?loufish said:You'll know what S.Steel washer/ring I'm talking when you see it!
The preload number is the distance the adjuster ring is from the bottom of the shock body where the threads start.
