Okay fellas, i am extremely satisfied with these things. All i have to say is that there is a Night and Day difference between these and the AC coils with rancho 9000 shocks. There even seems to be a little more lift. I know that the AC coils claim to add 2.5" of lift (and maybe they do) but i have the radflos dialed in at 2.5" of lift and they are definitely lifting the truck a little more. I cant wait for my alcan springs to arrive.
Now all i need to do is go to firestone and get my free alignment! :cheers:

Install was a breeze! Just a matter of unscrewing four bolts (three on top one on bottom) per shock, then screwing four back in.

Cool, those are going to be ordered after Christmas. I am now debating on if I should sell off the Calmini AAL's and get Alcan packs for the rear at the same time.

Word of advice throw anti-sieze on those puppies before the install. I have coilovers on my Jetta and I forgot to put anti-sieze on them one winter. Needless to say they are non-adjustable now.

Being that I work with air conditioning all day getting my hands on Freon shouldn't be an issue! :cheers:

I wonder why they dont make a verson that does not require you to buy the upper a-arms ... i just want a high quality shock for the front to run the baja, but i dont need the extra travel , and bling or the upper arms

In the first picture you can see why you need the new UCA's. It looks awesome! When I get a chance I will update the suspension lift sticky.

u can find it in any auto store, like autostone... it prevents the spring collar from siezing up from road grime, like salt, dirt and all that junk

You can find it at any auto store. It either comes in a small tube or a small bottle. It's silver and prevents metals from fusing together. It's great stuff. No tool box should be without it.

It is used all the time on spark plugs in aluminum heads. It prevents the dissimilar metals from bonding together.

There's always the Rancho 9000's which aren't bad for the price!

i'd hope so...they're advertised as $899 a set on his website
The $899 is for the resevoired version... same shock but with external resi for better cooling! Even at $899 that's an incredible deal for a shock that's the equivalent of a King or SAW!
