Mine came today !! I'll say that is the fastest I've ever recieved anything from Cali (3 days). Got mine with the 2" drop; hopefully get them installed sunday and be able to report back. Thanks Nick !

Installed yesterday. Took all of a few hours (uncommon problems) For some reason when you take loose my right shackle the spring moves against the frame? Other than that and the bolts that wont go between the rivet and bed all was good. The 2" drop pieces were a little snug but ended up working well.

Now for the good stuff. Took them to the roughest road near the shop, took it as fast as I had the nerve to and WOW! is all I can say. If they don't do much more they really keep the tail in line when going around a rough curve. Smoothed out potholes considerably and overallgreatly improved the feeling of patchwork in the road. A+ and a big thumbs up for a great product Nick !

The ride? Better but not a huge difference. Afterjiggles still there, but it does stay alot flatter on dirt road chatter bumps, you know, when the rear end wants to come around.
Honestly would not go through the effort to put them on my next truck.

Nick from NORCAL was AWESOME though I will use him again!
Thanks Nick.

Wow...I didn't even have to lower the spare to do mine. Just the trailer hitch a little....

Too bad...

Question, I had this come up the other day. I had a guy that over tightened the spring and shackles bolts. Everything was binding and not moving 100% like it should. Maybe take a look at that. Sorry i know the install sheets are not the best but we are working on a DIYer tech write up and video. I heard we might use 50cent as the back ground music.

But you didnt want to sell me any?


Thanks for helping me out with the suspension and not selling me the Sulastics. You were right on the money, I didnt need them, just needed to remove the add-a-leaf and the truck is handling perfectly, next up............... Traction Bars!

Again thanks Nick.

Haha, yea I know you more than likely thought I was trying to push you off but I just really felt strong about your question of what you wanted to change on your truck and I always know if you sell someone something that really will not give them the reflection they are looking for they will not come back. BUT if you get them handled with out spending money then next time they are looking for product they will come back. I plan on being around for along time and have been doing truck installs and selling product for over 10 years and this is my guide line I follow and it's working so far.

I basic sometimes taking another mod off can fix what someone was trying to change for another reason you don't need now. That was your case, everyone has a different case and we work off case by case.

Thanks man!!!
