Long Travel

Looking to do a long-travel suspension setup for the front with a deaver leaf pack in the rear. Anyone have any experience with long travel on 2011+?

Before any ask, yes i have owned a full-size (tundra crew cab) with LT suspension. It rode great on the pavement and performed well off road. Iím not looking to jump the truck, fly through whoops, etc. but once you own an LT truck you canít go back

Looking to do LSK or Kibbetech. Any thoughts, comments, or experiences are appreciated.

There’s sot of threads on this and other sites. Have you considered coilover kits like BDS 2-3” or Proformance Diesel since your not into jumping but improve ride or are you stuck on 16” of travel.
Alot of people don’t even buy a kit and just run coil-over shocks no torsion bars.

Thanks for the reply. Tried a couple searches here but didnít come up with anything substantial for the 11+ years regarding LT setups... I have contemplated the BDS conversion kit also I want to do more research before I make a decision.

What other sites you recommend for setups like this?

Google "duramax LML Long travel"
Any time you do a search put duramax first then question brings up the other sites
