    Default Cognito UCAs and more

    First time ive been able to get on in a while as im in Afghanistan. I'm looking to upgrade a few things when i get back to the states. The main thing im upgrading is the front spacer that Rough country puts in there 7.5 lift. I've been looking at the cognito site and came across, the fox coilovers, fox rear shocks, tractions bars, 6in deaver leaf springs and UCAs. All of this was found under their 7-9in lift for the 2010 1500s. Money really wont be an issue for this stuff when i get back but im just curious as if I should buy from cognito or find another place to deal with. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the king coilovers on my truck now. I am also looking at the Cognito UCA's and Deaver's for the rear. The UCA's will help with front end flex as well as being stronger. The Deaver springs will also help with the suspension flex. From what I have been able to find they use more springs in their packs but the rate of each spring is less to keep it from getting a harsh ride. When I ordered my King's I was told that they could make a set for any aftermarket lift company they would just need some info from or about what you have. I am not sure what all they need to make some for you. Sounds to me like you are getting ready for one badass suspension!!

    I was thinking about going to kings as well for a while, i think i might email them some specs and see what the price is.. i would love to have kings for the front and rear. and as for the deavers ive heard nothing but great things about them, everyone i talk too that has them says the ride isnt as rough as ppl make it out to be so thats a for sure thing for me along with the tractions bars b/c i have some axle wrap when i go to take off..
