Where the c/o adjusts the springload is how the shock manufacture decided to do it, the SAW c/o's for the Titan also adjust at the bottom of the shock.I installed the Radflo 2.0's and DR shocks in the rear, and what a difference. The onroad handling is much improved and what little offroad I've had the chance to do is also much improved. The one area I wasn't expecting a difference was interstate speed driving, but what a difference it was. I guess I never realized how much the truck was bobbing around until now. The ride at 70-80 mph is so smooth!!!
My questions are first about the radflo coil overs, when I see pictures of other coil overs, the spring is usually at the bottom and the adjustment is on the top. The radflo's are the reverse of that. I'm sure it's not an issue, but just wondering what the differences/reasons are for each.
Also wondering, did I gain any travel lengh with the coil overs up front, verses my old stock and spacers?
Second, the DR shocks go upside down from what the stock shocks were. What are the reasons/differences with that, if any.
I would highly recommend this combo to anyone intersted in a better riding truck! Don't get me wrong, it is still definelty a 4x4 truck, with 33" ProComp Extreme A/T tires, but so much smother!!
Thanks to Greg again!
With stock upper and lower control arms you really didn't pick up any more travel, but as you now know you have a much higher quality travel and that can count more then pure quanity of travel...
The DR's mount "upside down", for some manufactures this is to reduce unsprung weight, for other's the shocks can be installed either way...A standard twin-tube emulsion(many white shocks...) shock needs to be mounted body side down for the valving to work correctly.
