Default Finally! My lift is on its way!

Just wanted to share that Im finally getting the front end done. A moment of opportunity opened up and I got some brand new fabtech control arms and 2.5" lift springs for a great deal. I am ordering my bilstein 5100's tomorrow. I also got a steal of a deal on moog lower ball joints - 2 new for $35. Im also ordering some daystar evs red (softer) shock shaft bump stops and some black poly bumps to replace the stockers. Eventually I am going to get limit straps and SS brake lines, but the arms come with a bump stop to limit the upper arm droop, so that will suffice for now.

I'll get pics up as soon as it all gets in - delivery isnt estimated till early may...

I also plan to gusset the upper mounts to the frame and clean it up with black paint - should be a good start and handle nice until I want more

Default Re: Finally! My lift is on its way!

Yea, my 31's crashing into my fenderwells on every slight dip is getting old.. Im also interested in taking measurments to see how much my stock springs are sagged out..

Then it is on too the rear. Expo or Sport Trac leaf springs, flipped hanger, and bilstein 5150s with polybumps and limits..
