You'll be very happy with the CST coilover kit. I've seen a few +03 or newer trucks running the fiberglass fenders and they look mean! What are you doing about the rear? Springs? Bed cage? Who is doing the install?
Come on fellas, whats wrong with running triple FOX shocks on each corner :LOL:

Seems like you know what you want but it also seems like your gonna waste alot of money doing things over. Why spend the money on Deaver springs to have to buy a set of shackles. Why buy a set of coilovers or shocks to replace them with triple bypasses? If there is one thing that I have learned if your going to do it do it right the first time the way you want it to be. I understand money is always an issue and while taking the route you are now seems like your saving money it'll end up costing you more in the long run.

with the camburg shackles you get more travelbe cause they are longer and the leaf will drop out further on ranger you have to flip the hanger and run loner shackles if you want to run deavers. this web site can explain it way better them i can though. i know it's long, but it's a shit load of worthwhile information
Why longer shackles

well with the rear bedcage are you gonna have a cab cage fabbed, with V8 with the suspension to keep up with it in romping it could get you in trouble.
my buddy was the passenger and he broke his wrist, drive was unscathed....both are very lucky to be alive
Why have a cage
