Well, the guy did a lift on my girlfriends truck about 2 months ago and he played hell trying to get to entire kit ordered. So she went Pro Comp instead. Even an alternate (well-known) accessories shot in Houston, TX was having the same trouble. So rather than go through all that, I settled for the Pro Comp. I have it installed now and I am really impressed with how comfortable the ride is. Its actually hard to tell the difference from the stock suspension feel. I love it man!. Anyway, I'll be getting some pics up soon so you can see.
sure thing. but i just want to know what you meant by it was hard to get a fabtech lift kit where you live. it doesnt matter where you live, the company ships everything to you. its just the shop your doing it at must not want to do it for you or something
Well I really appreciate you sharing your experience with me on this. I suppose I will only know what I will choose to do once I have the current lift/tires in place. I'm sure I'll be better able to make my choice decisions from there. I'll shout back if I have any other questions. And I'll post pics once I have this done. Thanks again man.
my lift came with a 2" block. i just got a 3" block to add one lift. it rides better than an add-a-leaf. a buddy i work with has add-a-leaf and it rides like crap unless your towing a heavy load. I got a 3" spacer in the front, but it wont work with the procomp. that guy from my work has exactly the lift your looking at getting. its your decision, i just feel that fabtech is better all around as far as looks and ride. the only down side to having the leveling spacers in the front is the ride is a bit stiffer. i cant imagine how bad it would be with that plus an add-a-leaf tho.
I was all set to do the FabTech 6" but at the last minute, I went with the Pro Comp 6". Mainly because lift places (including the place where I am getting mine done) are having trouble getting the lift or all its parts. According to him, I can have an additional set of Pro Comp steering stabilizers put on. I looked up Pro Comps parts list and they do exist. Anyway, he says he'll trim if need be on the valances, and then he is going to accommodate me on the rear end by adding blocks high enough to level me out. I was interested in what steps you took to gain a couple of inches. I just don't want to add too high of a block on the rear that it creates too much stress, so I will probably go with the add-a-leaf next. Are the leveling spacers working well for you? Where did you get them and are they hard to put on?
2ND option is Pro Comp Stage II upgrade which is the front coil-overs (with 2" crank)/rear adjustable coil-overs. I'll post pics when done. Thanks again man!
