Re: Thuren Track Bar

They come pre-set to the correct length, should be 39-1/8” eye to eye for 03-13 trucks. Yank the old bar and put the new one with starting with the axle side heim. Use a ratchet strap on the frame and on the axle to help pull the truck whichever way it needs to go and then put the bushing side bolt ...

Re: Rear Shock Question

With the Thuren front spring only. It's the correct length stock, as is the front track bar. You don't need the entire kit. Thuren rear springs and swar bar links, and Kings should be going on tomorrow or Tuesday. This is true. I ran Thuren springs and stock Bilsteins for some time..maybe 5k miles....

You can also buy that stuff in things other than clear if you wanted to get uber fancy. They 3.0s are black cerakote body. Does that change if I need to cover them or not? Just remembered that... No, you don’t need to wrap them. The shocks don’t rust in normal or semi-humid climates. Especially wit...

Re: More Road-Feel After Driveshaft Rebuild?

I just had Tom Woods build me a rear driveshaft. A buddy got a quote for a whole shaft of about $700 I believe, and my price was $370 with me supplying the yoke and flange. Interesting point to note, a 2014+ driveshaft is a direct bolt in to the older trucks but is 2” shorter, so you can run it as a...

Re: 2011 PW Tailgate pops open while driving??

Does your bed look straight? This is a common problem for high speed off-road use but the tailgate opens due to bed flex. And then falls off. Lol.

My 2011 I’ve never once had the tailgate open on accident but my mechanism is pretty thrashed and needs more love than it should to open

Re: springs question

These trucks always sag on the drivers side. Fuel tank, battery, driver, the way the front trackbar moves the chassis on the axle/springs, the drivers side always goes down first. Swapping springs should have an effect though. If swapping springs changes nothing, and your radius arm bushings aren’t ...

I think people just see the openness of the Purple Cranium and think it's not as strong. But it is. Ask @DamageWagon how abusive I am to my truck. :lol: :lol:
The Purple Craniums are awesome, but for the same price the Carli is HOT

Re: Front and rear diff guards

Thuren doesn’t make diff guards, probably thinking of the Carli. I love the carli front, excellent quality and protection and it goes under the diff housing to help slide over obstacles and protect the lower lip of the diff cover. I like the Carli front over the purple craniums just for aesthetics b...

Re: springs question

The sway bar sliding ring is keyed, it can only reconnect when level. To say your smartbar was causing 1/2” lean means there must have been a pretty good amount of load on the sway bar at static height, which is odd because there’s a good bit of play inside the smartbar so the center of motion has n...

Re: Rear Shock Question

The King 2.0’s are Cadillac shocks, not for heavy off-roading but more for really comfy street and washboard roads. Or if you want to throw stock-ish shocks back on I’d just grab some Thuren Overlands, about $145 per pair and a very good all-round shock for these trucks, better than factory
