Upgrading 4" BDS for Heavy Hauling
Hey everyone! You can see what we're working with here in my sig. I'm looking into big 5th wheel Toy Hauler's and want to take my suspension to the next level before I pick one up. I'm not here to debate trailer weights etc, just the suspension upgrade, so please don't ask "how heavy". Because the answer is just "really heavy".
So the truck as it sits needs at LEAST the following:
Front: Control arm bushings , Track Bar Bushings , Shocks , Steering Stabilizer.
Rear: Shocks , U-Bolts
My "Heavy Haul" Plan:
Front: BDS 4-Link Upgrade ; Shocks ; Steering Stabilizer ; Track Bar Bushings
Rear: (currently has sway bar) Pro-Comp track-bars ; Hellwig Load Pro 35 Helper Springs ; Shocks ; U-Bolts
Additional thoughts: Dual Stabilizer? Front Track bar upgrade? Alternative Companies for Rear Track-bars/DIY??
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Remember, play nice and leave my GVWR ALONE!! I live in the mountains, riding a bicycle down the hill is dangerous for myself and others...I've read the debates...keep it suspension/heavy towing oriented...
