Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

2.5’s are a great option. A 2.5 can ride just as plush as a 3.0, and a 2.5 can have just as much bottoming resistance as a 3.0, it just can’t do both at the same time as well as the bigger shock. A 3.0 can ride plush but still have more bottoming resistance than a smaller shock that is tuned to ride...

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

There’s no replacement for displacement sir. A larger diameter shock performs better on and offroad. The larger the piston surface area the more “leverage” the shock can exert on the valving. That equates to a plusher ride on the 3.0 vs a 2.5 with identical valving. Whether or not the juice is worth...

Re: Master cylinder going bad?

I had to replace my master cylinder recently for dragging calipers, it’s pretty straight forward. If I remember correctly oem part was around 200 ish maybe? Make sure you bleed the system thoroughly though. And you’ll need to bench bleed the new master cylinder first.

Re: Thuren Track Bar

If you’re doing it alone and don’t have an extra set of hands to hold the heim, it’s pretty easy to orient the body of the heim a few degrees from vertical when the jam nut is snug, and it will right itself once you crank down on it. It’s best to get a feel for it once or twice before the red thread...

Re: Rear Shock Question

Hahaha ain’t it always the way, I bought a power wagon because it didn’t “need” anything lol. In offroad racing springs are considered to be there more or less only to establish ride height. Chassis control and suspension character are all shock valving. Carli doesn’t use that tuning philosophy as f...

Re: Do all 09's have VVT

Where’d you find the 09 with different power numbers than 10 and on? As far as I know the 09 and on 1500 and 2500 share the same 383 horsepower motor. Even the drive belt system is the same between them, in my work experience they’re identical

Re: More Road-Feel After Driveshaft Rebuild?

I understand post work hypersensitivity for sure, I think that’s a pretty normal thing after a mod of some sort. I know those yokes are a bear, my rear replacement shaft ran almost 800 and it seemed like half the cost was in the yokes. Good luck getting it figured out sir!

Re: More Road-Feel After Driveshaft Rebuild?

If a shop would reuse a deformed yoke, then I would be suspect of anything they touched period. That’s just asking for trouble. That being said, if I leave my hubs locked and get on the highway I can absolutely feel a noticeable difference in the front end of the truck. My front driveshaft is pretty...

Re: Front and rear diff guards

Do you guys with the rear track bars have enough space to run a fabricated rear cover like a ruff stuff or ballistic fab? That would be great out back if so. I use a ballistic rear and it’s hell for stout and holds about 8 quarts
