All non-LT kits are $790.

I don't believe they sell UCA's so pick your own flavor.

The price on these are very competitive and the reviews I've read so far are almost all positive.
Aaaand you're hired!! Hahaha. Thanks man.

UCA's are coming, they've been on test trucks in Australia for a while. Will offer with uniball and with ball joint, for those who have a preference. Still not sure when we will have pricing and a release date on those.

Your prices are reasonable so I'd assume your uca's are going to come in decent too. Nice, I even like the funky colors!

Pulling the trigger on a full set of springs and diff drop to pair with my bilstein 5100's.
since this setup will be likely the majority user base here, I'll be sure to provide some feedback to the group.
NOTE: I have KDSS

Here is a parts description of the springs from their catalog. You'll just need a metric conversion app for lift height in inches.


Edit: link to download their catalog file.

Mike has been really helpful trying to help me pick out my setup. We have decided on C59-300 springs for the fronts paired with the LT front shocks and C59-325 rear paired with the standard rear struts. This will give me the desired 3"f/2"r lift. I will post my review/thoughts once I receive and install everything. Thanks Mike!

they will need more than a conversion app, they'll also need access to your computer ;)

Yeah, I'm stoked for you.

We also sell new strut caps and can assemble the struts here and ship them assembled so you can do a driveway install. Add $140 for the new caps with assembly to the price, $70 per side. It will save time for you and labor of having to disassemble the old units to just get the cap off.

I had forgotten that our LT struts have a taller coil seat, so with a 2" Coil, it will give 3" of lift. Essentially adding anyone's coils on these struts will give 1" extra over whatever their height is. I'll make a side by side comparison photo here soon and post it up so you can see it.

I've had their rear variable rate 400lb coils sitting under my piano for over a month 🙈.. I'll try and get these on this weekend and report back. I will say Mike was super easy to do business with and was very responsive to my inquiries.

Stupid question then:
If you can get a 3" lift with the 2" (C59-300) springs and the LT front struts(GS59-574), with the 3" springs (C59-448) isn't going give a 4" lift will it?

Yes, your math is correct. It's not recommended to do that though unless maybe you have a 2WD and don't have to worry about CV's and such.

The 448 coils should be on the GS59-700 struts to give 3" of lift. Or you could use the 300 coils on the GS59-574 struts to get 3" of lift that way (2" coil + raised height coil seat = 3" lift). If you put the 448 coils on the LT struts, but added weight (bumper/winch), then it would drop down the height and you'd have a comfort ride coil still but holding the weight. That's what we're running on our company T4R right now, and with the bumper and winch (180LBS or so) we're at about 3.25" lift with those 448 coils.

Or you could put the 448 coils on someone else's long travel struts, like the Bilstein 5100's. There's a guy on here just about to do that

Would bump stop extenders be necessary on a 2" lift ?

No, as long as you only use the 2" shocks. Those bump stops are needed for the 3" long travel shocks to make sure they don't compress too far.
