Yah, thinking either white or red. White since the truck will soon be white or red to match some SAW coilovers that Ill be picking up soon.

I like white, but if you are getting SAW's I would go with red. It looks better dirty than white

whats up aero! I didn't realize you already had the Calmini DB. Are you getting coils long enough for the TS/DB combo? I left for CO Monday but work turned me back around. Looks like I will be coming back to CO next week with your parts.

Oh, I just left you a message. Bummer about getting turned around. Like I said before, Im in no rush on those parts, so dont worry about having to stay longer. In my message I said we should just ship them, but I assumed you were already back in colorado. We can hold of on shipping them until you are back to make it cheaper. If you would rather not travel with them, Im fine with shipping them right away too. Let me know.

My plan is to pull the drop bracket and sell it. Im doing the t-swap to gain clearance and I dont want to gain any more lift than I currently have, so the DB has to go. I would still like to get at least a 6" Fox or King coilover stuffed in or ideally an 8" with a shock hoop, strapped and bumped. First step is to pull the DB and get the new parts on for measurements to see what is really possible. Every so often I think about just going the easy route and getting the PRG/SAW coilovers, but thats not nearly as fun as my desire to cut the coil bucket out.

I havent even thought about what Im doing with the rear yet.

Thanks for your patience. Being homeless makes everything a PITA lol With the TS you can stay at your current height. Try sticking the new control arms and see how it looks before you start cutting.. That might be the easiest option.. But shock hoops will be awesome. I want to go that route. If you stay leaf sprung there is always Alcan Springs in Grand Junction.

For sure. Its going to be a lot of mocking up, putting the control arms on and off and measuring and flexing yadda yadda. Should be fine as long as I can have my truck out of commission for a couple weeks. Thats really the big downside to going full custom.

Didnt know Alcan was out of Junction. Thats awesome. For now, its been my plan to get some new Alcans since my prg/deaver pack is way too soft for what I use my truck for. Though I would love to do a 3 or 4 link rear with some big coilovers, I think the front end is going to be enough time and money spent this summer. (basically so my wife doesnt kill me )

Shoot, if I go the shock hoop route, perhaps I could fab up another set for you.
