    If you haven't noticed a drop in low end tq, just leave it! For me it was a big difference... I also have dual exhaust so that could play a big factor in how much difference the drop in filter changed things.

    That whistle drove me absolutely crazy. You don't hear it as bad with the paper filter. You could buy a new gasket without the whiffle or just cut the whiffle out of the gasket you have. Either way will get rid of that sound

    Some type of metal snips. Take a look at the picture on my original post and make the whiffle one look like the one without. This gasket is behind the throttle body. When you tighten the throttle body back up the bolts should be 7 ft-lbs tq.

    What is the material of those covers? Similar wet suit style as wet okle?

    Yes, neoprene. I have some wetsuits and was worried id hat the covers. Some of my suits are rubbery feeling and would make terrible seat covers. These are really soft and I'm pretty happy with them. These days I get pretty nasty at work and needed something to make sure my seats didn't get ruined.

    They have covers made out of cloth material that I almost bought. I would have if I still worked in an office.

    I've got the 10th and 11th free so I'll finally be installing my lift. Coilovers, uca's, shackles and poly bushings. Giving myself 2 full days to get it done and hopefully get the alignment done the next day. Anyone have an online guide or tips for the install? I've researched it and have been looking at my truck to map out what I'm doing, but I wouldn't turn away any tips. I'm pretty excited about finally getting the lift on.

    I'm going to throw this question at you because your about to install some shackles on you truck. So I was looking at the Coachbuilder shackles, just researching... and those are some beefy parts compared to stock. Very Nice indeed! So to my understanding, they will add some lift depending on size... what if a person would like those shackles, but doesn't want lift? OR you just want to add a leaf? In what scenarios, do you or don't you add shackles? Then what about the front? PROS or CONS with shackles? :) Thanks!

    I think he makes some that don't give you lift. The ones I got give 1.5 - 1.75 inches in the rear. I choose these over an extra leaf spring to retain the flexibility of the factory leafs. The shackles give more control in the ride and stop any bed bounce. I've just got stock factory coilovers in the front and I'm replacing them with adjustable coilovers with stiffer springs. The only thing I would do if I had a pro would maybe get shackles that don't lift it any. I would probably just leave it stock. Thats a pretty nice set up from the factory.

    Thanks Gary... I totally agree about the PRO suspension, as I don't plan to change anything there until it fails. I do want to see though about a replacement shackle that doesn't include a lift, just an oem replacement.

    Well, today I installed my lift. I'm completely beat! It was dark when I got the last wheel back on, so I didn't really get to sit back and look at it lifted or make more than one "after" measurement. It looked a little high so I heard my phone on for some light and took a measurement of the passenger front. 4 3/4 inches lifted on that side! Yikes... So I'll have to make some adjustments tomorrow after I find out how many turns of the coilover is an inch. Here is a list of parts that got put on:

    -Fat bobs coilovers
    -One coachbuilder shim on each coilover. Each gives half inch so I don't have to preload my coilover as much. My goal is 3.5 inches of front lift
    -light racing uca's
    -coachbuilder carrier bearing drop
    -Coachbuilder +3 shackles, got about 1 3/4 lift in the rear
    -coachbuilder polyurethane bushings for the rear of the leaf spring

    I still need to install the diff drop tomorrow, tighten back up the front sway bar and skid plate. After that I'm taking it to get aligned at 4wheel parts, unless anyone has a better suggestion.

    By the way guys, coachbuilder1 is a vendor here now. Not only is everything I bought from him top notch, but today when I needed a little help on my install, I called and he helped me over the phone.

    That seems to be pretty reasonable for what you did. Good job on that. How did the final lift measurements turn out?
