Ok need some help I was just wondering if any of you could tell me how good Whiplash Suspensions products are. I was looking into one of their lifts but some 4X4 shops here in Denver say they never heard of them and all this so I was unsure and it seems that some of you have heard or used them so any info would be great. Thanx in Advance.

All the stories I've heard, there are more bad stories than good. He doesn't currently have 3 trucks, he's had them on 3 trucks. Maybe Mauro has been lucky, who knows, but I personally wouldn't touch a Whiplash, not only is the subframe hideous, I dont like the whole insurance scam thing :read:

Are there any other companies that make a lift for the Titan? I believe CST has one, and they make the best 6" full drop lift for our trucks. I'd look around a bit more if I were you. Either way, best of luck and post some pictures :ninja:

Thanks for the info the CST lift does look nice i guess Ill just have to save more money the Whiplash kit was 1500$ so 500$ isnt that bad. All I want is a really tall freakin truck my friend drives a Silverado with a 9" Superlift and 35" tires with 20" wheels nice lookin truck id like to be about as tall as him.

9" superlift? Dont think so, they dont make a 9" superlift. Probably a 6" superlift + 3" bodylift. Anyways totally go for the CST, its a great kit im sure, all of their suspension products are.

I love my cst kit. I dont even run shocks up front because my coils ride so smooth and perfect that I never bothered getting the eye piece I needed to mount the shock. I vote for cst, you get what you pay for IMO...

I doubt you could fit 15s w/o doing some major grinding to ur caliper, and id stay away from a lot of grinding...what come on it stock? 16s or 17s? companies usually, not always, put the smallest rims on there stock, so that should give you some idea of how small you can go.
