Hey guys im wanting to put either a 6" procomp basic system or an 8" Fabtech Basic system.Any suggestions? also im having trouble deciding what tires and rims to go with. any help and pictures would be appreciated.
I'm finding in my area that the shops here either *love* or *hate*
FabTech. It is the strangest thing. Some shops won't even talk about
them ... then other shops will basically only push Fabtech. I had one
shop say, "Who the hell is Rize? Never heard of 'em. We install Fabtech."
I have been trying to make up my mind about what lift to put on my truck
for about 3 months now! I wish I could just drive it over to Marty and have
them do it--a BDS 8" 4 link, please
But a drive from Sacramento
to south Texas would burn up a lot of cash that I can put into parts.
Anyway, I wonder how that 8 inch basic FabTech kit rides. It keeps
the stock radius arms and uses drop down brackets, and in the rear it
uses a 5" block, your stock ~ 2" block, a rear spring spacer and a
add a leaf. ( For a F350 it's a 3" block with your ~ 4" block and a rear
spacer and a add a leaf.) So, you'll most likely have some axle wrap.
But, the price is down there in the low 2ks installed, no? Is this a
"you get what you pay for" deal?
