  1. I spoke to a bilstein rep back in August during the 4wheel parts truck fest and they gave me the same lame story about the 6112s for our trucks: "It will be ready by the end of <insert missed target date here>" (I believe they said end of September at the time) ... and he muttered something about they got hung up on the F150 production runs or something like that ..by the time it got to that part of the story I had tuned out. I wouldn't be surprised if the bilstein reps at SEMA say: "It will be ready by the end of November"
  2. I would have them check the axles being out of round as well. The wheels/tires could be perfectly balanced but if you have the same issues shown in the vid, you would get the shake you are mentioning.
  3. Thanks guys, keep 'em coming! @Johnv76 How are you liking that setup? Any chance you could post up some fender measurements?
  4. I presently have 2.5" level and trying to decide between BFG KO2s 275/65r20's or 285/65r20's . The latter is significantly more expensive. I've searched quite a bit on here and only found a hand full of guy running 285/65r20s on a 2.5" level. Of the pix I have found, one looks like that setup is "stuffing them in the wheel wells", while the guy running the exact same setup looked perfectly fine. If you have that setup please post up pix! Or if you have the 275/65r20s and wish you had gone bigger, please chime in also!
  5. FYI- A tune from blackbear performance will fix the upshift/downshift garbage software transmission programming from the factory. No dealer will be able to address this.
  6. Nice job - looks good! Entertaining how much bigger your truck is next to the white one (assuming that is stock height). Out of curiosity what does the height of the tire measure out to while on the truck? Also interested to see the fender heights if possible.
  7. Can you elaborate on how the ride is w/the new setup? I have a 2.5" leveling kit now and was thinking of changing over to the same exact setup as you have - but have been struggling to find any solid feedback (assuming you have the 2.5 non-resi shocks). Maybe something like stock ride rating on scale of 1-10 (10 being best) vs 1-10 rating for the fox 2.5's + cognito UCA .. ?
  8. If you have tapered blocks, are they both installed the same way? Another thing to check to see if the ubolts are installed properly in the upper spring plate/cup...?
  9. Can someone from HaloLifts shed some light on the below comment? The topic of this thread seems to indicate the coilovers can be adjusted from 0-3". However, the below statement seems to indicate that in order to go higher then 2" you'll need to use spacers....?
  10. You get an alignment yet? That could definitely be the issue if not.
  11. Do you carry any aftermarket upper control arms that will allow the use of stock wheels (+27mm offset) ?
  12. How is the ride w/this setup compared to stock? I was thinking of running a similar setup as I'm not too happy with the stock ride. I think there's only a handful of guys on here that are running the same thing, so any feedback you can give would be helpful. Thanks!
