25 inchs lift kit

Silver,

I never received your e-mail. Anyhow, no problem lifting the dually. But here is the tough question..... What tires do you plan on running under this lift? Being a dually you are limited on what you can do without relocating your rear springs, narrowing the rear axle, and resorting to custom built wheels all of which gets very expensive. If your truck was a SRW just about anything goes, but a dually is a whole different story. For this reason we generally stick to 37-38s with 8" lifts on these. But anything is possible.

FWIW, I plan on selling the entire drive train out from under my X (only 20" lift) soon. This includes springs, hangers, shocks, gusseted axles with 5.13 gears, drive shafts, crossover steering, wheels, tires, etc.. I'd make you a hell of a package deal.

Abendix came through with a sweet deal I couldn't pass up (Sorry, Donahoe). I was hesitant at first but when someone offers you their *** for free, well you know....

Parts list:

Front
*** 36" Spring Hangers
*** 36" Cast Aluminum Blocks
*** 24" Drag Link Adjuster Sleeve
*** 2" Add-a-Leaf
*** 72" Lengthened Sway Bar Links
*** Quad CV ABS Plastic Front Driveline w/Carrier Bearing
*** Air Assist Steering (Dual Opposing Air Bags)
*** 48" Travel Pogo Shocks (6 per corner)
*** OE Brake Line Relocation Kit

Rear
*** 28" Coil Sprung Spring Hangers (6" travel)
*** 36" Cast Aluminum Blocks
*** Overload Springs (12)
*** Right Angle Drive Dual CV Rear Driveline (Prototype)
*** 96" Hinged (Scissor Type) Traction Bars
*** 48" Travel Pogo Shocks (4 per corner)
*** OE Brake Line Relocation Kit

The only details left to work out are how to mount the 74" DOT approved Michelin tires and we are still trying to get Weld to give us a break on the 32x36 aluminum wheels (with simulated beadlocks).

BTW, great thread. Thanks Silver!
