component upgrade questions
I would like to upgrade my suspension to help it ride smoother and handle better. It rides and drives out now, but instead of buying a newer truck I figured why not try to make the one I have(and is paid off) better.
Right now I have the Fabtech Basic 6" lift with a 2" coil spacer and larger block in the rear. I have also upgraded my shocks to the bilstein 5100. So here are my questions.
1) would upgrading my trackbar and/or drag links improve my handling? I see that PMF sells both but I also noticed they are for offroad use only, so not really sure if this is a necessary upgrade for a truck that is basically a street queen.
2) I was also considering the Top Gun Custom long arm 4-link system but was not sure if it will make much of a difference for my type of driving. I know offroaders and sled pullers dont really like the radius arm but not sure if it makes much of a difference on the highway? Also, would I have to completely re-install the 4-link system if I decided to up my lift to 10" or do can the arms themselves just be adjusted on most systems? The TGC ones say they are for 8-10" lift but not sure if they would bolt to the frame in the same place.
Sorry if these are noob questions.
