Finally got new suspension and tires. I ordered the 4 inch HFS lift kit from Torfab in Everett Washington and had Torfab do the install. I would have liked to to have done the lift myself, but just don't have time with work and family life. I then put new BF Goodwrich KO 33x10.5x15 tires on and love the combination. This is the second time I have had work done by Tor and will continue to go back. It's still a little bouncy, but tons better than before with 40 year old suspension.




Bouncy? Tires look overinflated. Common problem. Do a thread search on tire pressure and contact patch and invest in a quality tire gauge if you don't already own one.

How about a close up on those shackles? I had an instance a few years ago with a customer complaining about ride quality. Discovered incompatible shackles and springs from HFS that literally bound the wrap of the spring into the shackle gusset. Talk about a stiff ride!

Those tires look perfect, just the right amount of tread. Nice burly look with that lift. I now see what 65swb45 is talking about. I'd be curious what your pressure is and what pressure other folks run those at.

My guess is your rear springs and shocks are darn near as stiff as your fronts, they shouldn't be (heavy engine/empty bed). Rear springs should have one less leaf than fronts, rear shocks should be the softest valving money can buy.
Looks good. I really like that tire/wheel combo, it's the look I plan on going with for mine.

As for Torfab, hopefully they will be doing some work for me in the not so distant future, depending on my budget of course.
