V and B Spring Swap Before and After Photos

I did the V and modified B swap a couple months ago but havent got around to posting any photos. I also installed the ICON 3.5 leveling kit. I also installed 285's.

How do you like the ride and what did it set you back? I have 4" rancho springs in front with blocks and add aleafs in the rear. Was debating doing the swap w/ a hanger kit too.

Truck looks great man!

Great Looking EX!

Just picked up a set of V codes last weekend from choupique108. Got them cleaned up and painted this week & will install on Saturday. Hope it turns out as good looking as yours!

Still looking for a set of B codes if anyone has a pair.

I swapped out the today

I just finished putting the V codes on the EX this afternoon. Will post some pics tomorrow. I gained about 1.5 to 1.75 of front end "travel" and the EX sits level now with the stock rear springs. The rear was 1.75 inches higer before the V codes.

Took about 5 hours since there were a few "stubborn" bolts, fittings, etc.
