looks to me as if those shocks have no up travel at all. i could be missing something but it doesnt look right to me.

I also agree......and why does it need limiting straps??

the truck looks lifted, but maybe he installed the wrong shocks for the lift. maybe he wanted to do long travel and just forgot to get the long travel control arms.

From his discription he states "8 travel shocks" assuming he means 8" stroke... he put the LT coilovers on w/o the LT arms... (as previously stated) he added bumptops and limitstraps to keep the truck from selfdistructing.
From the looks of it, you will have to replace the coilovers, get stock bumpstops and go from there. You will be hitting bumpstops all the time and those coilovers really do not give much if any of a benefit over a 'stock' application like Camburg, SAW, or Donahoe.

I personally have not run energy suspension poly bushings, but from what I understand... they make a ton of noise.

I don't know anything about LT or the set-up he's running so hopefully you guys can fill me in on the set-up. Should I steer clear of it? That kind of suspension is pretty much non-existant up here and I've never seen any of it. I don't even read the long travel threads since they would never apply to me. Keep the input coming. Thanks. ...Steve
