Well I removed the 6" Thuren diesel coils for a set of his 3" Thuren diesel
Soft coils and I am loving the handling increase in the truck. Along with the bed cage and front 3.5's the trucks handling like it's on rails. Also on a side note I did manage to demolish and crack a trail ready bead lock running really low psi and falling into an ice hole at higher speeds then I should have been doing with only 8psi in the tires. Luckily trail ready sent me a new wheel and I am seriously considering running a dual spare set up in the near future cause I go through wheels and tires a lot. Lolol Image as you can see with the trucks bed full of running gear for pre running/ any offroading it sits level now with the front. Image I did leave AlL my drops in for the 6" lift though so the front end has crazy flat drag link and track bar angles etc. which means it has no bump steer and the turning feels very nice and stable. Because all my drops are still in place and I'm running 12" stroke shocks I did lose quite a bit of up travel so at ride height I only have about 5.5-6" of up travel. And about 5" of droop before the coil is too loose to use. Image

Holy hell welcome back!!! What caused you to drop the truck to the 3". What did you do to the rear to match. Or do you have super rake!

You must be running half a ton back there to make it level down 3"

Gas tank, driver and battery all make the drivers side much heavier. Gas tank kills the rear leaf.
