One more question, this is the first time I have a truck but I feel that the suspension is really rigid, when driving through streets that have many depressions/bumps it hurts lol is this normal with this type of trucks because they're lifted?

I believe they're in good condition however I think that I'm missing the coil springs or this type of suspension doesn't need those?, sorry for so many questions lol, will take a better picture later if needed, I only have this one atm

If you question your shocks, use the bounce test. Procedure, get on on corner of the truck (the shock you are testing) and bounce on it or apply rapid up and down pressure, then get off and watch it. After you stop bouncing on it it should recover in 1-2 bounces at most, and sometime it will stop almost instantly. And that is probably the easiest way to check a shocks condition easily

You don't have coils you have torsion bars.

Sadly no its a long process with my dads work schedule, but pretty much just need to put jump seats back in and align bumpers (jumps seats are optional though). Should be done by tm night.

Anyone else have problems with the rear bumper brackets? Mine wont adjust far enough down, tailgate still hit the bumper (bumper is also a little bent from previous owner)

Yeah I just found out about the two types of suspensions lol, so how's this different from the one with coil springs? I mean is it better?
