might be thinking about this kit for my 2003 silverado xcab...

link to suspension

what size tires/wheels do you think that truck is running and how much do you think the kit would cost with the coilovers? (it doesn't give a price of the shocks)... and where could i find fender flares like the ones on that truck? thanks for your time... (picture posted below if your too lazy to click the link :crazy:)

Ive been trying to get my friend to get rid of his 20's and get this lift your talking about for about a year. He wants to get a lift but he wants to just get a big one with like 37's or 38's but i told him with a 1/2 ton that long travel will be a lot more usefull. Those tires are probably 35's or something a little less. You can find those fenders or ones like it at
http://WWW.GLASSWORKSUNLIMITED.COM

If you get that lift you need to come by and show my friend it because after seeing it im sure he will like it.

also those shocks are probably around 300 each for the ones in the picture. On the link you posted it said it does not come with the spindles either. Im not sure how much those are.

that truck has 35 inch tires. probably on 16x8s.

35s on 16x8s are your best bet with a kit like that. you will be able to wheel hard in the desert assuming you beef your rearend and all your frontend components.

a long travel setup done right is going to cost a FORTUNE. thats 2 grand for just the a-arms and brackets. the spindles and coil-overs will probably be another 1000-1500 and then you gotta get rear springs, and 500 for glass fenders, and wheels/tires. rear gears, new tie-rods, etc.

imo its not worth it unless you plan to NEED it

Brock that truck is running 35x12.5 BFG AT tires. The CST coilover kit is very nice, I haven't driven a truck w/ the kit but I have seen a couple of them and they are sweet. In all reality that kit will holdup longer than the truck if you plan on abusing it. Yes it is expensive but from the couple people that I've talked to it soaks up just about anything you can throw at it.

Here is another truck running the kit although they did modify it slightly but still a nice example.

10 grand is easy to spend on a lifted truck IMO Not everyone can do it, but if you can afford it why not? I spent about 7K total on my last truck and I was 17-18, I just worked all the time and I had no bills didnt have to pay for the truck so it was not that hard to earn the cash working my ass off. Now I got a phat payment but working full time for good money makes it easier to mod.

If I went to school and didnt work full time no way could I do what I am doing as far as mods. I would be pushing it just paying $500 a month for the truck.
