should i go with tha CST kit and keep my UCA's and shock hoops and run the bigger kit and leave in my spindles so i can sit at 15" or should i just get the 16" FTS and run all new FTS stuff and run a stock spindle?

Well you will save some green by getting the CST kit because you already have the spindles, shock hoops etc.. Both are great kits

Well throw everything out on the table then to compare the price

My FTS with all options and shocks, everything came to $5200 including shipping

Doesn't that CST kit run.......

Never mind its $5100 for the basic kit, thats fucking expensive shit(the CST kit)

I don't really like the way the FTS kit looks from the front.

are you kidding me? The best deal I found so far is 4500 for a 8" fabtech installed

Jason.....your back!

Either kit looks good to me. I don't like the FTS ones when they are all powdercoated colors. Just having black like mine doesn't make it stick out that much, just like a big plate there. If cognito made a 16" I would have gotten that. But whatever

Why not get the cognito with blocks out back and pro comp shocks, shoudl work to be pretty close if not cheaper. You could ship it to me if ya want and I can send it to you, probably save some more money(I work for UPS)

Sorry dude for fuckin' the thread up, that was directed at Kev. I think its up to you just which subframe you like better, both kits will work great
