im pretty sure you can run your stock bedsides, you might need to do some modifications depending on your tires

usually people go with lt in the front first, but i think its a wise decision that your going with the rear first. youll probably only travel as fast as the front will take you but you definitely wont be experiencing the dreaded "rear end buck" that alot of us have experienced. Also, if the front will not keep up with the rear (which is likely) you can always add a secondary shock hoop and shock. and valve. good luck man

ive still got Deavers and Donahoes in the back.....im next on the list to get the DMZ SUA kit....that caged black one just needs to pull out, so i'll have room to shove my truck in the shop

I highly recommend DMZ, alot of us have gone to him for work and there no special reason why....its just cause he provides exceptional work and great customer service (its not a secret)...straight up, the dude's a nice guy and wont give you the runaround...just call him and see what im talking bout.

So I talked to tim today and he said that brake lines wont be needed for his kit. I didnt get a detailed list of what else was really needed for his spring under kit but i'll get one next week when i go up to his shop and "browse around" . But for the mean time anybody have anything to add to my list for the little random parts for going spring under.

-shorten drive shaft
-bedcage
-shocks
-u-bolts
-spring perches
-spring plates
-shock tabs
-limit straps

thats what i planned on doing but from what i saw on the site the kit looks like it only comes with the springs, front hangers,shackles,bushings and hardware. Didnt know it came with ubolts and the perches. If it does sweet means i'll have it on the truck faster!

You could look at what Tim did for me a couple months ago. Now, I did add some wheelspacers to the rear so that my tires wouldn't contact my bumps at full droop/angle so the glass bedsides were needed but you can see how tight my cage is. Also kept the tailgate and the vast majority of the bed as possible.

If your geometery is off, you could lose your E-brake as well so that's part of the reason to take it to a good shop like DMZ or Richer Racing that should be able to keep it.

Replacing your LSPV with a manual one is also a good idea at this point too. Keeps the braking nice and level now.

i just need to shorten my drive shaft about 2 inches. but you prerunner guys need to add a slip joint sounds kinda pricy.
