    I'm making some changes for ride quality. Just ordered Fox front coilovers, Fox rears and Dakar leafpacks, shackles and bushings. May replace UCA's too, but going to wait until alignment to see if it is necessary. It all started with the stock springs flattening out already and a small front alignment issue. Both contributing to a chitty ride quality. Hope to knock it all out at once and it keeps my wife from wearing out expensive arsed bra's from riding with me. Well, kind if hope that... :rofl:

    New stuff going on as soon as it all gets here. Not unhappy with the lift at all... other than the included shocks being too spongy . Just re-doing suspension parts to make the ride better. Actually, the rear shocks may have been compromised some by the stock rear springs flattening out.

    Finally got everything installed. Only have about 10 miles on the new components and everything is still a little stiff... but ride is much better than before already. Install includes Fox 2.5 coilovers with remote resi's and Fox 2.5 rears from BDS, Dakar leafpack's and shackles/bushings from OldManEmu. If I had to do it over, I would have picked the Fox DSC coilovers. May order that kit later.

    ..get the inline speedometer calibrator from hypertech. It will get you back your mileage and shifts points normal. Had it on a 6 inch lift w/35's, and it flat out was a saver.

    I've got the Zone UCA's that are going on my 3" lift. Zone doesn't use their UCA for their 5" kit. They utilize new spindles.
