What year truck do you have?


Not to take anything away from here, but there are several pics on TDS. Those are with OBS or SD springs too.


But I am thinking of ordering a kit today, as a matter of fact!

Dropped an order this morning.

Sounds like it will be a few days, as they are going to make one that will properly fit-up with trucks using an intercooler.

Pics to come soon......stay tuned!

Sorry, I bought a 3" SKY kit.

I have the SD springs at the house, along with a set of OBS F350 springs. SKY mentioned that it will be a few days to fab up a new RSK, to make the adjustments for an intercooler. So I have to wait for that. Plus he said it will be 5 days for shipping. But, I want to proceed with my suspension mods.............so....

This weekend, I think I will be doing my Dana 60 swap, installing the OBS F350 springs for now. Hopefully that will go ok. Then maybe by the following weekend, the RSK will be here, and maybe get installed.

My main reason for the RSK would be to ensure that I will clear my tires (315/70/17s). I am just afraid that the Dana 60 alone will not let me run these tires.

But, I am thinking about having it aligned then. Then driving it for a bit to see if I want to go with the SD springs. My current ride does not bother me. This truck still rides better than my other trucks. So we'll see. I have the springs if I want to run them.

4rdFed,

You do know you will have to MOVE the RSK forward for the SD Spring right?

Also, Just the Dana 60 and some bumper trimming will clear 35's easy

Yeah, I'm aware I'll need to move the RSK when the time comes. But that should not be a show stopper. Basically I look at the first steps (getting the Dana in) as a test fit-up. From that, only a few brackets to get loosened up, to instal the RSK.

Then if I want to go to the SD springs, move the front bracket, get some longer shocks, and worry about the front driveshaft deal. I am just trying to do my homework about what shocks are needed and what I need to do for the driveshaft.

I just like to do my homework ahead of time, so that my truck is not stranded at some critical point...........that's when I'll usually need it!
