thoughts and input re:build

Currently my 93 has 5/8 boomerang shackles courtesy of vacj5 and a one inch body lift. I've got 33s stuffed under there with no flares. Id like those to fit a little better. I don't think ill go any larger than 35s. Anyways... My options are

2.5ome springs all around, but for now if rather not open up opportunity of sye and vibes.

Option 2 metal cloak all the way around.

Thoughts please.

If you like the way it rides and flexes now then I would go with Metal Cloak all the way around.

I don't know what the cost comparison is (I haven't prices Metal Cloak on all four corners) but if it's cheaper then go for it. You will keep your low center of gravity and have room for the 33's.

If it were me, I would go with the new springs and take care of the drive line angle while putting in a Ford 8.8 rear end.

I agree with these guys. Keep the low COG (if that's what you want). I have a similar setup but have 3.5" springs. I get great clearance for the tires but I'm not too tall.
