PMF 7" lift Installed !!!

Put 37's on my Icon 5.5 lift and had rubbing issues. So talked to Trevor and he made me a 7" kit using Icon 7" springs, Pmf 3 link arms, Pmf 8.5" traction bars, crown brake lines, and Bilstein 5160 shocks.

Install was pretty easy as I've done all the different lifts on the truck so far myself, so I know my way around it. I was able to center the rear wheels with his kit as well. As for ride the 7" springs with the 5160 shocks are softer then the Icon 4.5" springs and shocks. I really love how it rides going down the road. I didn't think anything would ride better then my Icon 4.5" but this set up does. Traction bars made the shifts on the truck smother and I can take of from a stop with no issues now. All in all it was money well spent, and Trevor is great to deal with.

New lift kit








The difference in Icon springs 4.5" vs 7"











Done for now!

Thanks and the wheels are 20x10 with a -25 offset 4.5" of back spacing. the wheels were the problem with the smaller lift, but I like them so I went higher to make them work.
