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!

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.

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.

I'll get some pics for you, but at this time I just left the c/o's at the preset level. So the truck looks the same as just having the spacers up front. I will be raising the front some (maybe 1/2") and adding the 1" blocks in the back soon. I spoke to Greg when I ordered these and he said I could adjust the radflo's up some without loosing the quality ride, his instructions were to raise it slowly and check the ride each time. I guess at full extension or close to it, the ride will slowly degrade. I'm sure it won't get as bad as stock though.

So for the ride is wonderful, I'm so glad I made the purchase!!

I have a few more questions, first do I still need the bump stops from my mini-lift kit on the truck, now that I have the Radflo 2.0's?

Second, is one of the spacers on the bottom attach point of the Radflo's, larger than the other? I read some posts last night regarding other c/o's and they mentioned this.

Yes you should run the aftermarket snubbers.
The longer spacer goes in front of the lower shock mount, this keeps the axle from rubbing on the shock...I don't think it's a big deal if you have a 2wd...
