  1. Yeah, you replied 'no doubt you can order longer Fox shocks' after I'd said If I couldn't get them from BDS I would order them elsewhere, I thought you were just agreeing with being able to find them elsewhere. Anyhoo, yeah I'm not putting spacers on my truck if I can help it haha. I'm pretty leery about blocks, but we'll see what deaver says.
  2. Over towards the right you can choose which kit you get. Click on 4" RR CO. Those are Fox Coilovers with preloaded springs for 4" of lift. No spacers.
  3. https://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=748H Yes....you can.
  4. Depends on the kit you buy. I'll be calling them to confirm, but I've been told you can get extended shocks. And if they don't? I will be confirmed the collapsed and extended length and ordering my own from a trusted source. I don't do spacers if I don't have to.
  5. Also, to the guy who said Coilovers aren't that great. Well, if you live where it snows, I agree. Salted roads are bad for vehicles in general. Myself, I live on the west coast, and I just traded in a Tacoma with full Baja race suspension, so I beg to differ on coilover performance on road and off road lol. Yes they do ride a bit rougher depending on how they are tuned. Most people that buy off the shelf coilovers don't tune them at all and usually complain of the ride being harsher. If you know a tuner or know how to tune the shocks, you can easily have an amazing ride both on road and offroa
  6. The difference is, you get what you pay for when it comes to suspension. Most lifts that aren't purely suspension tend to add lift by adjusting the geometry of the front suspension components. However, most kits are primarily spacers of some sort, and while they do provide lift, they also tend to cause other issues down the road. Accelerated wear on other component that have now had their geometry changed due to the spacer. Plus, from personal experience, spacer lifts tend to ride a bit harsher than stock suspension due to the fact that they are usually compressing the shock, or mo
  7. Awesome, thank you guys for the replies! I'm slightly leaning towards the 6". I'm thinking on hitting up camburg for the AAL they have, as I'm worried that the full pack they offer is geared more towards offroading and will be a little to flexy for towing, IE kill my load weight in the rear. Then just mix and match some blocks to see what I need to be level. Will have to find one that has the rear up just a hair to account for the leaf pack settling. Or just calling deaver and telling them exactly what I want. Should probably just do that haha. Pretty much every leaf pack I've ru
  8. I may be coming in to a bit of cash soon, was planning on a BDS lift and a whipple. Whipple is down in Stockton, was gonna see if they do installs, if so, was just gonna drop the truck off and throw cash at them to do it all right and return to me a boosted truck :D. That way I don't have to deal with waiting for this part or that part, just give it back when its done haha
  9. Hey guys, So I've been eyeballing the BDS kits for my 2020 LTZ 6.2. I kinda of want to go for the 6" kits, but heres my question. Whats the difference between the 4" kit and 6" kit, other than the larger block in the rear. Do they just use different front springs/shocks or crank up the preload on the 4" kit to achieve more lift, or is it actually larger shocks with a minimum amount of preload. Coming from a Long traveled Tacoma, I know my way around shocks and preload, and I would prefer to avoid that. I also plan on getting the Full Fox setup with the adju
  10. Ugh I hate that! When I pick up my boys from daycare they love popping the sunroof and back window open (OMG DAD CAN I HIT THE BUTTON PLEASE), and then cruising through the neighborhood to go home at 25mph that helicopter sound is so annoying! I usually blip the throttle just a hair every time I hear it just to make it pop some cylinders back into rotation lol. Even though it immediately starts back up again. Other than that, loving the sound of the thing. I left the side vent open since its been in the 50s or so on my drive to work, so I'm not super worried about pulling hot air f
  11. So I started to but then saw that there was wire loom attached to it and I'm notorious for snapping those things, so I figured they made it look super easy to pop that box off, I must just be pulling at the wrong angle. And I was...hahah
  12. Thanks! Hahah Yeah I was thinking the same thing initially- "Did they send me a 5.3L coupler? is there a size difference?". I totally agree, I was super impressed with how it looked. Everything went together easily enough, but also seems sealed well and put together excellently. Yeah I tried ordering several different intakes through multiple companies and every single one refunded and said they can't ship to CA (all the ones that didn't have that listed at the sale). I actually ordered the GM performance intake, and after about 3 weeks the sales manager ema
  13. Just installed mine today. Had to have a buddy ship it to me to get it in California, hoping they get CARB Approval in the next 5 years ?. Hardest part for me was getting the intake throttle body box thing off. They showed just rotating it up and popping it off but it didnt wanna do that for me. Spent a good 20 minutes trying not to break anything before I must have found the right angle and gave it a love tab to get it to pop off. Also took a bit to get the coupler on to the throttle body. Thought for a second I might have got the wrong one, had to play with it and twi
  14. I tried lifting mine up in the driveway on the passenger side but I didn't trust getting under the truck. (maybe I was doing something wrong but with parking brake engaged, threw it in 4WD) Initially forgot to throw the tire chocks in and it rolled forward a few inches before I slammed the jack back down, then I put wheel chocks in and I just didn't quite trust it to not roll with me underneath. So even then, I tried to wiggle in and get the exhaust out but I knew it was gonna be a ******. I started using my sawzall to get it out, but it had an older used blade in it and it snapped about
