They look like 8in travel shocks.

If that's the case I think you could do better with one of the other coilovers "kits" on the market or a custom setup.

The retail price suggests the brackets alone are worth around $1000

Fabtech is very proud of thier products. I install their systems and sell them. They make a good product but they are outrageous on their dirt logic shocks. You can get fox and bilstien*forward*half the price and kings are even less. Plus the nickel finish rust. Had a customer spend 12k with my shop I work for on his 09 GMC 2500HD. Did all dirt logic and his shocks started rusting in less then a year (live in sacramento ca) they said to just us red scotch bright on them. They only give 1 year warranty on shocks for leaking. So would recommend going with some else like rebal offroad, rock crawler, or evo for bolt on apps. They all make great stuff and stand behind it.

My build

good to know about the rust, because i was considering their dirt logic 4.0 coil overs for our new f350... I hear what you are saying on the price but I got a good profit margin on their shit! and the customer "KNEW" what they wanted

I here that. Their kits otherwise are very good and fitment is pretty good for the most part.

The customer is always right.
