Tension rods have been replace with 720 rods now
Key part like you said is setting up the geometry. Its not simply lets bolt this up and itll work.

What front is that a hardbody.

Its a mash of 720,d21,521 and more. Only 2 people know how to do it. Jim from top jimmy motorsports in tracy ca and a dude in mexico.

Jim completed my ball joint conversion earlier this year. Its amazing to have a proper setup. Total cost with parts fab and labor is about $2500 or so. I dont have an exact price due to he also added straightening the front end after my crash.

I can provide the info if needed.

If going this far, I'm on board. And that is a whole lot of pennies spent.

But until one reaches ^ that ^....

Yeah on the freeway at high speeds its super comfy. Except for the seat. Lol
But this i did well anything is better than stock.

Coilovers front and rear done.
Low? well second lowest static dropped 521.
Comfort? better than torsions and leafs all day.
Handling? I can say running 15x11 doesnt allow me to give an opinion.
But if it wasnt for that this thing would handle amazing.

But my over all experience is every penny was worth it. Cruising on the freeway at 85mph is the most comfortable thing ever. "Until i bottom out the frame lol".

Waste of money? Not at all worth every penny.

Joe still has a few things to finish up and then put a few miles on it to sort things.

With that said, you can bet I will zip up there to get it as soon as he thinks its ready for the road.

This truck is really low. Like "limbo" low. You don't step up into it. You don't slide into it. You fall down into it!

Gotta take a seat in mine. Haha youll have troubles getting bsck out. I know i do.
