I was shopping for a suspension setup and couldn't pass these up either. I had mine installed last Wednesday down in Portland... so far, simply love them. I haven't had a chance to test them off road yet, but the truck feels great for daily driving. I pretty damn happy. I picked stage 3

Looks great!
Which springs did you use? Comfort, Performance or Constant?
Do you have before and after measurements?
Any settling observed since install?
Thanks!

Great questions... the shop chose my springs based on how much weight I had on my truck and how much I was going to have when I was off roading etc.. Im honestly not sure what they came up with. Wanderlust in Oregon did the install. Overall feels stiffer than stock, no nose diving etc... been a week, sure hasnt settled much. 3 lift. My wheels are 18s with 285/65 tires for reference

3 gives it a great stance- thats what Im hoping for.
Looking closely at the photo, I can just make out you have a B on that rear coil so you have Performance springs. Should be a great fit for extra occasional weight.
Thanks for the reply!

Hi, Did you order from the ironman4X4 website? If so I noticed it looks like you have SPC UCA's instead of the ironman ones, was there an option to choose UCA's? Thanks!

Cheers!

I ordered them from Wanderlust Overland in Oregon... they installed them as well.. quite a deal they had going for awhile.

(plus no sales tax!)

Hello, I just completed my install and started an Ironman Nitro specific thread if you want to see more detail on my outcome. Very happy with the result!

Love my FCP's! Best suspension I think I've personally had or rode in by far!

Link to my install and review that I did in the fall.

Your thread played a big part in my decision to go with Ironman. Appreciate it!

Im torn between this kit and Eibach's. Im worried with Eibach's rear spring only being 1". I was also going to get some UCA's with Eibach but this kit has it all. Still not sure about that green though. I'm not going to do much off-roading. Its more for the looks so color plays more of a factor for me as well as price. Eibach will come out slightly cheaper.

Thanks for sharing this, in one of the pics it looks like the the shock body is fairly close to the frame, have you noticed any issues with that (rubbing or contact)?

Cheers!

It really depends on what you are aiming for as the result will be much different. I wanted to maintain most of the factory rake, so I quickly decided against the Eibach kit. An option to consider is running Eibach shocks with OME 885/895E for a 3/2 lift. Black springs would have been my preference, but these do look pretty sweet now that they are in.

These shocks are huuuge. And yes they are close, but have not had any contact issues. It is imperative that the rear FCP's are mounted with the correct orientation otherwise they will hit. As mentioned in my write-up, it's a very good idea to review the FCP install YouTube video that they do where it covers this topic.
