build advice

I thought I'd post my build plan and get some opinions on it or advice.

I currently have a teraflex 2.5 coil and shock lift with their front lowers and a jks front adj trackbar.

Installing 35" goodyear mt/r's and a 1 3/4 " spacer up front with a 3/4 " in the rear this week.


So my plan is, after superchip, gears, and bumper with tire carrier, to switch to some 4" shocks up front and 3" in the rear.

Then when money comes in again to get 4" coils up front and 3" in the rear.

And then eventually replace all control arms with teraflex.

What do you guys think of that plan? Good idea? Good enough? Ideas and suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Oh, I was also thinking of switching to jks front shock conversion when upgrading and was wondering what shock length to get to keep it at the right amount of compression.

Btw axle gusset and shafts are in the plan too, I forgot to include that. As well as new brake lines

jsut a lil tidbit of info but unless you want your front end jacked way up compared to the rear youll want to go with the same springs as teraflex's spring are rated to level it out as well. there would prolly be around a 2 inch difference front and rear if you went with 4 and a 3

I'm thinking about getting JKS ACOS spacers, which I believe are 1" min in front and 2" min in the back. but that's a good tip, thanks!

and Jon, I'm doing tires, spacers, and adjustment tomorrow so I'll be pretty busy. but I will be sure to give you a call when I'm free.
