    Default Fabtech FTS2200K Coilover Kit

    I was wondering, how hard is it to install these? I have the stock TRD shocks and daystar spacers but I think the spacers are getting mushy because my 33's are rubbing when I enter/exit driveways. My tire blew out yesterday on the 405 and so I'm using it as an excuse to get a full set of new ones. I'm still sticking with BFG 33x12.5x16.5 but moving to MT from AT.

    Tires will be on tomorrow afternoon and I was going to have them check the alignment to DJ's specs, but they do not use Hunter plus I'd probably need an adjustment after putting the Fabtechs on.

    I've read mixed reviews about the coilover kit and these are used from another TS member, so I presume that they are still good. Should I just go to 4Wheel Parts and have them install and change the bushings?

    well it was easier than expected, but took longer than desired. i ran into some difficulty trying to get the bottom part aligned to get teh bolt thru. but after a few "choice" words and a 2x4, the coil overs are in and seem fine. i'd like to lift the truck up higher, but probably let this settle in for a while.

    see pics in my gallery.....

    nice job my friend!!
    it usually helps to say a few choice words at the parts, sometimes they need a little coaxing, if not get a bigger hammer!!lol

    well the fabtechs came off when i sold the access cab. i got a double cab now and want to put them on but they were leaking (my parking spot looks like it has black freckles). anybody know a local shop (los angeles vicinity) that will rebuild 'em? fabtech suggested a company in the san diego area, but i don't want to pay for shipping as these are pretty heavy.
