I went out driving alittle today. I think I may take on a big project once I get that ADU and garage built with the lift.
Roads are pretty bad here in Portland. Some roads look like swiss cheese with all the pot holes. My truck is so stiff suspension wise with that 8inch Pro Comp XXX lift, that I feel every stinkin one of those potholes.
I think I'm going to design a new suspension system. I'll have the same shop I used for the bumpers to laser cut and bend the steel.
I'm thinkin maybe a 4-link in the back with some heavy duty coil overs (King?) And maybe a 3 or 4-link up front with same shocks. Redo the axles with high steer and new set-up for the steering.
Now, I know that coil overs don't allow much weight in the bed, like leaf springs do. I'll do some more research and see what I can figure out.
This will be a slow build, and the truck may be out of commission for awhile, as I slowly design and build it.
I'll start my own thread when I start, but will be awhile. I need to build the ADU and garage first.....come on PowerBall!
