Intervention for suspension

Would like to buy all upgrades from Savvy but can't quite swing the 3" suspension systerm. probably someday. But I have the underarmor and 1.25" body lift. I want just enough to fit 33's. since they say that their UA fits with their 3 inch lift kit then I'd assume its the bumpstops that prevents the contact between suspension and under armor. So what I'd like to do is get some 2" procomp coil springs with rancho 9000 shocks and get the bump stops from savvy. throw in the antirock from savvy for good measure. Sound like a good plan? This way if I want to go bigger in the future I just have to replace the springs and add on other suspension mods (control arms, traction bar...ect)

What are your plans for addressing driveline angles?

the savvy under armor comes with a 1 inch motor mount lift. hopefully a small 2 inch lift and mml will prevent any of those problems

That's quite a gamble. Good luck.

you will need an SYE.

I've got a 10" longer driveshaft and I needed a SYE with a small 2.5" lift and a tummy tuck thats lower than the Savvy.

I have a feeling he's going to have to learn the hard way...

Yes, but UA tucks your tummy 3"+. You think an MML alone will adjust for 5"+ of change in driveline height?

The only way to do things right is to do it right the first time.

You know what they say: Research, research, research.

And if you still can't iron out the fuzzy points, ask the professionals.

Listen to what he is saying here. You will need at least some adjustable upper arms back there and most likely rear lowers also. Then, a new custom driveshaft. We've all been there already.

I hope the OP listens or I fear you are correct. A hard lesson it is.
