Hey all, any of the gurus out there know the answer to this question? I'm tswapped and I'm going back to stick length control arms but I'd like to know if anyone knows if I can run the extended length Radflo 2.0's with stock control arms? Or are they too long and would cause the UCA to slap the coil bucket?

If they are truly just extended length and not titan swap length they will fit but you will get CB contact without UCAs. If titan swap length I doubt you'll be able to even get them to fit and even if you did lots of CB contact and potential bottom outs.

so another question, do you happen to know how sturdy the coil buckets are on our trucks? I can always grind off the lip at the top of the coil bucket and flip the radflos mounting bracket over and bolt it down that way effectively raising the top of the shock mount and lowering the suspension

a better explanation, if you grind the lip off of the top of the coil bucket

and then flip the shock mount and then bolt it on upside down on top of the coil bucket

Do you know the compressed and extended length difference between the Radflo and the stock strut?
You can keep the control arm from hitting the coil bucket with limit straps.
Like gd said, they might not even fit or they may bottom out.

I would not recommend this...

Don't do any grinding/cutting to the coil bucket if there are other less destructive solutions available. No sense in ruining the factory buckets (eliminating any chance of going back to stock) when you can just get some stock struts for next to nothing. Really the only situation where cutting the CB is acceptable is if you plan to cut them off entirely to install shock hoops.

Just buy some used struts for less than $100 and sell the Radflos to net a couple hundred in your pocket. I assume since you are going back to stock the performance hit is not a big deal.
