Custom Suspension - Carrier Spring

These are them. No spacers, no realignment of the control arms required (on 2nd gens)

I've got spacers in there now and hate how they ride. Been lookin for affordable alternatives for a few years now. Prices seem to be comin down some now finally. $450 for new springs and front and rear Bilstein 5100's to me is a decent price finally. Considering just the shocks would run about $300 by themselves. I jst have neve heard anything good or bad about the company or products and that always makes me nervous.

Dammit Wyatt and you to Doc, I don't know if I should thank ya or hate ya. Yall went and made me spend more money. I ordered a set of the soft ride coil springs and a set of the 2" lift helper springs for the rear. And the guy talked funny to. Kept sayin EH Don't ya know.

WHEN DOES IT END, IT'S GOTTA END, I CAN'T TAKE IT NO MORE. I'm tired a workin on this truck but I keep orderin new parts. Somebody help me, I can't control it.

Now I still gotta find shocks.
