My new ex

So after a 6 to 7 hour drive home last night I arrived home at 140 am with my new ex. I love it but it needs a program so it moves a lil faster I know its a heavy vehicle haha. So I got a few questions for ex owners.

First one is this thing wonders all over the road if you look awhile for awhile your liable to end up off the road lol.. Whats the fix steering stabilizer?

Next question. I wanna do a lift I was gonna have Deaver make some custom springs so I get a 4 inch lift. I have heard do springs I have heared by a lift kit. I want a good ride please give me some advice. Thanks

Deaver makes nice soft springs with added leaves . sliders and tapered ends

I like them but they are $$$

a off the shelf lift with a rear block would be way less ..


find the source of slop ,, the boxes are notorious for being sloppy and can be adjusted

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

The steering feels tight it just wanders.
I know the Deavers are money but Im only building this thing once haha. I wanna do it right the first time.

unless you know how to check all the ball joints/tie rod ends ETC take your truck by a front end shop for an evaluation and if it all checks out get an alignment or fix whatever they find that might be warn and align

my 2 cents LOL
