I had the basic kit, upgraded to a 2.5 coilover recently, but the install and pictures are on my website in the product review section. IMO good kit, I gave it heaps.

anybody lose any body parts in putting the fabtech coilover assembly together. Just letting the top plate and everything go flying is great shit!!!! I bet it was fun :xcrazy:

I have the basic kit, easy to install etc., hasn't let me down on the trail or anywhere. I had a set of collars freeze up on me and no anti-seize could bust em free so i called fabtech and they sent me new ones free of charge. So obviously my interaction with them has been a great one.

I think he's running kings, it says something about that on his site that they feel more "sure". Did the fabtech's sag too much?

I like to compress my springs, and let fly. I'm trying to see how much damage I can do to my garage :xdevil:

Yeah, I finally made the switch to a 2.5" coilover when they came along at the right price. The reason for them feeling more "sure" was entirely due to the fact that I had beat the crap outta the fabtech shocks. They are leaking around the seals. I would still buy the kit again if I was on a budget.

Edit:Sag was not really an issue after the first month or so... I just had to crank them up 3/4 of a turn and it was all back to + 3.5".

I only have mine turned up to maybe 2.5" and i clear 285x75x16 no problem on stock wheels.!

Just minor rubbing here and there, on the Frame up front lock to lock, and the little bolt on my damn fender flare in the rear when tweaked way out!

here are some pics of the basic kit install about a year later. it has held up very well. I think it was designed to allow for 32's, but i'm sure you could squeeze some 33s on. i have it cranked to about 3".

Claymon, in that one pic of the side shot of your truck it appears that your axle isn't centered or something, what's up w/that :confused:

hmm, are you referring to the rear axle appearing too far back in the wheel well, or it being offcentered underneath the chassis? my AAL has really settled (almost a couple inches!) so that may be why it appears that way, if that's what you're referring too.
