Welding is required - this is not a bolt on system and will require proficient knowledge in fabrication to perform the installation This particular kit uses a 10" 2.5" coilover and a 10" 3.0" or 2.5" 3-Tube bypass, a larger bypass can be run but would require a custom tube layout Coilovers require a specific fitting layout - if using your own coilovers please contact our sales team to make sure the configuration you have will work with this kit Shock hoop is listed as an option because most installers wish to add an engine cage but may want to run their own layout - choose this option if you would like to use our supplied shock hoop by itself or as a base for your installer to build an engine cage off of. Optional Shock Hoops are contructed out of 1 1/2" .120 wall DOM tubing Kits are normally in stock, however, a lead time of 3-4 weeks for a finished batch is typical on this kit when sold out. Please contact our sales team to verify if product is in stock (While it displays "In Stock" on the website, inventory levels are constantly changing and is not updated in real time) RCV Race Series extended axle shafts and HD inner/outer CV's are required - OEM CV joints WILL NOT work with this kit. Spidertrax Unit Bearings are required, OEM hub assemblies will not work with this kit. Running these hub assemblies ELIMINATES the ABS system. Coilover/Bypass lead time depends soley on King Shock Technologies. Typical lead time can be anywhere from 8-10 weeks on standard King blue finishes. Custom colors are available for your coilovers and bypasses, please contact our sales team to go over pricing for each additional option. 82d84c_f5e0a8faa1df4fbd9ca2e95af4d7f392_mv2_d_5184_3456_s_4_2 (4).webp
After Months of having to cope with noises and problems regarding tge front end alignment on my truck, i finally came across the solution
The stock suspension alignment is set by this cams, which are prone to moving under load and/or getting loose:
No matter how many times i aligned the truck, it all moved again while making a turn in the parking lot or getting down from the drveway ( close to steering lock)
I finally decided that it was enough and after making some research i came across this kit from Dirt King Fabrication: https://dirtkingfabrication.com/products/upper-arm-alignment-cams-dk-632919
The process i took was as follows:
-Re Align the Truck (-2* Camber, +5* Caster)
-Mark where the position stock cams as they sit correcly
-Install thenew Dirt King cams in the same positions
-Add pressure washers (Not incluided in kit)
-Add Loctite (Not incluided in kit)
-Tighten everything down (like, a lot)
For the TL;DR I made a video about it:
Problems i came across:
-One of the alignment pins that are pressed into the chassis fell, almost all others were loose
Fix: I replaced it with a little screw and nut (shown in video)
-The truck´s suspension still knocks a bit when moving at full lock, but it doesnt feel like moving
Fix: Still working on it but if it doesnt move and looses the alignment, i dont care
Maybe the only option is to pin point removable welds, screw it.
Have anyone else experienced this kind of problem in their trucks? How did you manage to fix it?
With any luck GM fixed this garbage alignment design for the new 2019s (i think they did)
And as always support on my YT channel is very much appreciated
