I just signed up for TTORA and am about to order Donahoe front coilovers this week, the model (#5-8610) usable with stock UCA's. Any opinions on the way these ride?? I currently have daystar poly-urethane spacers but those are going to be tossed. My truck is not a wheeler, but takes me out to to where I need to go to ride Motocross and BMX...

Thanks,
Joey

Thanks for the quick responses! I have them quoted at $950 +tax at a local shop, but I know Donahoe is behind in production but will have product soon. My current setup is worn and way too soft. Two motorcycles in the back and I'm driving a Caddy...

Does anyone know if you can run the Donahoe reservoirs in the rear with stock leafs?

I don't want to lift the rear end of my truck though, the new leafs normally add about 1.5 to 2". The Bilstein 5100's would work with stock rear ride height right?

Thanks, this place rules by the way, I have had my truck since it was brand new and heard of TTORA but never knew how much knowledge was available here, I have a renewed psych for my truck and future mods!

How do I get a photo gallery here to show pics?

So I'm finding out that it is a better ride to install the Donahoe extended coilovers with new upper a arms (Camburg opinions?) Do the new upper a arms make the front tires stick out more?

With this set up, I should be able to run Bilstein's in the rear with stock leafs right? I see a lot of people running new leafs such as Deavers, is this a requirement that I may be overlooking?

Thanks!

Not really a requirement but it will greatly increase the ride quality over stock and help even out the lift from front to rear. Of course, it always works out better to try and do everything together the first time if you can afford to. If not, ya do what you can, when you can. If you can only afford the front CO's for now, do that and set your sights on what's next and go from there. It's a downward spiral, lol.
