I am finally ready to spend the money on lifting my LBZ my only concern is which lift to get. I know i want to run 37 inch tires on 18x10, and still do some towing when i need to? Maybe what would be the pros and cons of both lift kits.
I don't have the 8" fabtech but I do have there 6" lift and have never had any issues, lots od people are going to say go with the cognito 7-9 and set it at 9"...I was also thinking about what lift for my next truck..have you ever thought about doing the CST 9-11" and leave it at 9" with the 37's? that way you don't have to worry about breaking a CV
ya i have heard of alot of problems with the fabtech 8" like poor steering angles and cv angles i would go with the cognito or CST and i don't think they push the tires out as much as the fabtech either
The 8" fabtech requires cutting front differential bracket and makes it hard to return to stock.The Shop owner that installed my kit runs it on his HD.I have towed with it and he has taken it into the biggest dunes in Glamis.It handles good but he did add all Cognito steering upgrades to it and he got it for $500 off someone upgrading to a 12" bulletproof lift the guy kept having alignment and steering problems with Fabtech.His installer said the quality was better on my Cognito and easier to install and return to stock if needed.
