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.

Re: Airlifter 5000 Ultimate airbags w/ Daystar cradles '14+

Just as a follow up. I took my truck through Moab with this install and my articulation was just fine with 0 PSI. I'm not even sure i ever hit the internal jounce or if I did it was muuuch softer and not jarring at all. I do have boogie bump stops in front. FB_IMG_1526095416270.jpg FB_IMG_1526095057...

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Okay, i bought 3m black vynal s12 at Don's recommendation to wrap just the rears. It'll make em match and protect the steel body of the shock. It was 14 bucks so if it doesn't work out it's not the end of the world, lol.

Re: Thuren 3.0 KING on 2018 Powerwagon!

Thanks guys. I got some for the rears as I didn't have them coated. I'm guessing cerakote is fine on the fronts as its kinda the point of it besides the color.

Did you have the shock bodies clear wrapped? If not, it’s probably a good idea with the salt air you have down there.
Can you explain the clearwrap and with what? My King 3.0s are in the mail so I'm thinking about what needs to be done for them.

Thuren Track bar fit with about a half inch of space. Both parts are on the axle so are static and won't move closer together. Sorry, no pic, it was late... I can take your word for it ha.

Re: Thuren rear track bar measurment.

I think it'll clear. Daystar cradles don't hang over that far. Maybe turn the bolt around. I think the top bracket will be fine because the internal jounce would hit first and stop compression. I also think the pic is a bit of an illusion going on. I'll post pictures when done this weekend. Oh and ...

They put out a new kit recently w/in the last year called the M240, it's a compressor & accessories built into a .50Cal ammo can: https://www.amazon.com/gp/...
