Have not gotten that far. (About tire size) I'm going 6/10 for now since I have the suspension for it already. But maybe next year I'll bag it and be done. 6/10 on a static drop is very low but inconvenient for a daily driver. I am staying w my 22" or replicas. Just not sure what tires I'll run
So, I was extremely impressed with Reklez for offering a 1 stop shop for the 2 piece drive line and cross member for $850.00. I had never purchased a drive line before but after speaking with many who had and quoting out drive lines. It was indeed a well priced item. I only purchased because I was going much lower than the 4/7 kit on my 17 double cab sierra 2wd. When the product showed up, it was well packaged and u bolts and carrier bearing were already installed saving time. It sat in my garage Oct 17th. I simply didnt have the time to install it. When it came time to install, I text the owner as he is very quick to reply. I wanted to know about opinion angle. He replied with "we do not sell 2 piece drive lines for the double cab. After screen shotting the conversation I had with him prior to purchasing the product and asking him (how long it took to prepare and ship for my 17 double cab sierra? He told me 3 days.) He read the message and replied with "oh well we had lots of issues with the double cab." He also said they were sending out quad cab drive lines and they were the wrong legnth for the double cab. He told me I could return it for a full refund if it's been less than 30 days and not installed. I also had to front the return shipping cost of $112.00 and he would reimburse me. Now, I have a couple issues with this. If your company goofs and sells a bunch of products that are too short or too long (not sure which one) and could be dangerous if installed. Why would you not reach out to those customers and let them know of the problem. This confused me because they are very helpful with tech support. And my tubs, shock extensions, monster notches were all very well done. Definitely a frustrating situation. Now I'm stuck waiting on a refund to purchase a new 2 piece drive line with cross member.
I've only ran belltech. When I was 3/5 it was a better ride than stock. Kw makes quality products. I haven't known anyone who ran maxtrac. A lot of people aware by McGaphys. It's like ford, Chevy, or dodge. Just depends what you like.
Actually I have the belltech drop spindles for -2 Drop coil springs -2 Drop struts -2 although I'm currently sitting at 4" I'll eventually take the rubber spacers on the very top of the strut tower and go lower. What I didnt know until now is at 7" or lower in the rear on a 4 door. U have to swap the single drive line out for the 2 piece driveline. So today I ended up buying the reklez 2 piece driveline with crossmember. That's was 850 bucks I didnt want to spend on something that wasnt a tub kit. Lol but, it's better than it breaking and being without a truck.
17gmclowlow replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomFord wants premium only ran in them. According to our ford dealer in town when we bought them only premium fuel and semi synthetic oil motor craft. Regardless the 2.7ltt was "peppy" but only because lack of weight from a metal body. My sierra has the 5.3l and its much more powerful but u can feel the weight of the body! Now, if I were to put a tuner on the 2.7l and do away with all the factory slow settings. Different story completely. My personal opinion.
Yeah, I'm saving for a bed/wheel tub now ( reklez has a kit for $755 shipped) And a 2 piece drive line. (gotta check out local prices though. reklez wants 809 for 2 piece drive line and cross member, which I think is a bit on the high side but over priced) It's a project on a budget. So, little by little I'll get it taken care of. I can run a 265/35r22 on the front and get away with no tubs @6" drop or so reklez is telling me they do all the time.
Just another inch in the rear for now. But eventually I'm going to do the 5/8 or 6/9. But I dont have money for brand new tires as my tires are brand new right now. My 305/40r22s are just too thick up front to drop more up front right now. Although I'd really like to.
