CST 4"/1.5" installed...yea yea 2wd
 
Well,I just couldn't take the factory ride height anymore. Ordered up the CST 4'' system for my truck, and man what a difference. I'm still keeping the stock tires and wheels for now. Haven't made up my mind on that combo yet, and don't have 3k to blow haha. It took me and a buddy about 4 hrs to do the front and back. I have a few pics, but not the best quality :smiledown:. I will try to get some better shots for some that may be looking to do this. The kit was just as stated, and after fender measurements, I gained exactly 4'' in the front and about 1 5/8'' on the back. Right at 40'' on the front and 40.25'' on the back .

Looks good. Did you replace the shocks as well, or just go with the parts in the basic CST kit?

012RAMbo 07-23-2013 12:39 AM

Thanks! No, I kept the stock shocks front and back. It rides same as stock. I don't notice any difference in the ride quality at all.

Thanks man. Yea I eventually want to bring it up to a 6" with 35s. Probably some Terra's or something similar. Don't really have the need for m/t's, or a lift for that matter. Lol. But it's going to be awhile to save up some cash for it. Will def. hit you guys up when I do though. Everybody speaks highly of you guys here on the forum that I have seen.

Terra's are great tires.
I run them on my truck. They are smooth, pretty quiet and quite comfortable.

Sure. Anytime, let us know. We would be more than happy to assist you
