I am not a salesman for them but I am just that pleased with the product I have received from them.
    Thanks man i might do that. About how much would it cost to get the best ones they have installed all the way around my truck?

    I am not sure. For my truck to get the coilovers and rear shocks it would be around $2000. That is 2 remote resevoir coilovers and 2 remote shocks for the rear.

    Your springs are factory.

    As Blackout07 said you have your stock springs. I believe R/C uses a 5.5" rear block and a add-a-leaf. What I would do is to get a set of Skyjacker softride rear springs (this ia what I have on my truck). They will lift your truck 5-5.5" and then add a small block or order a set of Deaver custom springs so you don't need a small block. Then get rid of those POS R/C shocks and get either Bilsteins, Fox or Kings shocks.
    :cool:

    I was referring to there shocks they are no good at all ha. Also my lift doesnt have add a leaf i dont believe and its a 6.5 inch rear block not a 5.5 inch that is used with the 6 inch lift. Also the shocks in the rear are horrible they dont absorb the holes in the road... So the kit from fox or king shocks doesnt come with new shocks and springs? Aloxdaddy said i could prob call them and get them custom made for my lift would just cost lil bit more and wait time also i think i will go that route instead though.

    I believe King only has front and rear shocks and coil springs for strut type suspension. You'll have to buy the rear leaf springs elsewhere. Deaver spring will custom build a set of rear springs per your spec's/request.

    oh okay thanks man

    Yes I was talking about shocks. The front is a coilover and the rear is just a remote shock so an AAL or new springs would be needed. Another way of getting a little bit of lift out of the rear that Jeeps use is a shackle lift. I do not know if they make them for full size trucks or not but that may be another avenue. The jeep guys use revolver shackles and it is supposed to help with suspension flex.

    Thumbs down

    Nope, don't want shackle lifts on fullsize GM. Induces lots of axle wrap/wheel hop, results in broken drive shaft at the minimum. Don't ask how I know this.

    HMMM sounds like experience maybe? STB I do have a question for ya though. If you use the shackle flip I think you get 2" or so out of it I thought that is better than useing a lift block. The blocks will also induce axle wrap/wheel hop. I thought that with the shackle flip and lift shackles you can still use a stock spring so the spring doesn't have to have a real high arch which helps with the wheel hop/axle wrap and also gives a nicer ride.
