well i finally got around to putting on my rear dr's. The install took about an hour. The only thing that i don't like is the boot on the dr's on down. you can't flip them since the two ends are different sizes and only fit with the boot on the bottom. And boy i couldn't have got these done soon enough! When i got all finished with the install i looked at both the rancho's and the driver side rear was 4" shorter than the passenger rear. My brother in law who is a mechanic said it was completely blown out! Well we looked at the the fronts and decided to wait till after turkey day to put those on. Anybody on here have any pointers or instructions on putting front coilovers on. I have the radflow 2.0? thanks!

i can tell you you're gonna love the setup....i just got the dr's in the rear and radflo 2.0's in the front installed about three days ago....I LOVE IT!!! i had my stock shocks on for two years, and they were complete crap....i drove out to greg's and he did the install in about an hour for all four corners, this included an alignment.....the ride is awesome....MUCH better than stock....he cranked my radflo's up to about 3.5" of lift, and it's really nice, looks sick, is higher than just a leveling kit alone would give me.....you're gonna love this setup man, i say don't wait until after turkey day and just do the install now :gunz:

haven't really had the chance yet to take it offroad, hopefully tomorrow though, i have the day off and am planning on trying to find some spots for paintballing...but so far the ride on the road has been really good, not stiff at all....there are some crappy paved roads around me, and the truck feels really good on them, plus i'm on stock tires as well, until tomorrow, after which i'll be on some terra grapplers

do you have to get an alignment when you put the front coilovers on?

I believe that you do have to get an alignment. At least I did with my SAWs, so I'd assume it'd be the same for the RadFlo's.:dunno:

greg did an alignment as part of the installation, so i'd assume it's a good idea to get one just to be on the safe side :)

Anytime you change the ride height up front, you will need an alignment...so you only need one if you changed the height (which I suspect you did).

hey Smoke do you have any pics at 3.5"? is it slightly taller in the front? (since the leveling kits are 2.5 i'd assume so)
i'll try and take/post some tomorrow...and yes, it is slightly higher in the front...from straight on, it looks leveled to me, but from the side you can definitely tell that the front is a little bit higher....
