i dont have a nnbs, no idea, but i dont think those will work since it says 0-3, you need 7-9

if the fts kit uses a 7" strut spacer, those should work. you'd theoretically be able to set it from 7-9" of lift using those struts.

fts kit has you cut the bottom off of the strut and uses a extension piece, i doubt you would want to do that to a strut that expensive, i think you need a longer strut

Ok so this model is a no-go, but how about any other model Fox 2.0's or Dirt Logic?

How about getting fts coilovers? Or give them a call and they can tell you what will work.
DirtLogics are $1,200 whereas FTS 2.5's are almost $1,900 and I doubt the FTS coilover's ride quality is worth spending $700 extra when compared to the DirtLogics

They make fox 2.0s for the 6" bds. There's probably enough adjustability in them to keep you at 7" up front but I'm not sure. Someone else may know that answer

Ended up going with Fox 2.0 10" travel emulsions and King 2.5" coil springs, 16" long, 750lb. Spanner wrench. Getting the mounts made by Jason at GMR. Going to give it a shot.

I have the shocks and coil springs, just waiting on the mounting brackets from GMR.

Ordered a Viper 5706v this morning, a vette servo, and some new bumper end caps so I can add 2x2 rigid fog lights. Also, I have an appointment with the gear shop to re-gear to 4.56 gears on Monday.

Seriously considering a cam too, just waiting to see how much a guy local to me will charge for install.

Got the gears installed today. Drove 30 miles and I hear the loudest death grind coming from my rear-end. Let's see if they can do it right the second time.... Good news is, Jason is shipping me the mounts tomorrow for my coilovers.

I'm looking for some advice on how to paint these. I don't think the blue is going to look good with my truck being silver birch. Since they are brand new, do I need to strip the paint first?

Any recommendations on color? Was thinking black or grey.
