Here's a customers truck that i did.

6'' Pro Comp lift into a 2003 Dodge 2500 5.7 "hemi"

37'' Cooper Discoverer Tires on 17'' Black steelies

front was a pain in the ass, lower control arms had the cam bolt seized in the bushings and had to be cut out and new bolts were bought at the dealer.[16]

rear lift is kinda crappy flexes better than the front though

112469

112470

112471

The kit gives you a laser cut steel drilling template for drilling a new hole in the track bar bracket on the frame. but the one in the kit wasnt even close:mad: but i got it damn close without it anyway.
112472
3'' aluminum blocks:dontknow:
112473

112474

112475

112476

112477

all in all the truck drives pretty straight with no alignment and the ride is a little stiff right now but i would imagine the front end will soften up

the cooper tires are really nice, very quiet. there is more wind noise coming from the windows down than tire noise which is good.

Nice job. The tires stick out just as they should, you know just enough for flying rocks to sandblast the rockers. Just kidding truck looks great

Do ya have any prices for the lift?

And it doesn't look like it went up 6" for some reason...just the pics i guess

no just installs and small fab jobs right now

the rear is sitting lower though just like all the other block lift kits. full rear leaf lift in the rear would be the way to go for sure

I have a similar lift in my dodge. I just picked up a set of long arms that convert the from to radius arm instead of 4 link. I'll post pics of the install.

Looks good but too bad it's the hemi. Mine goes well when it's wound out, but absolutely no torque under 3000rpm. :rolleyes: I wouldn't even think of putting bigger tires in mine without doing the gears at the same time. At least with a diesel it's got the torque to still pull strong with taller tires.

word of advice.... call your dealership and get them to order in the lower control arm cam bolts. this is only if your truck is a 3/4 or 1 ton.

its very common to cut the heads off the stock bolts and replace with new ones. what happens is the bolt is machined on one side, so you have a space in the control arm bushing for water to seep into and it will seize that bolt in the bushing for good.

i gooped on the anti seize on the new ones so the alignment shops shouldnt have any trouble later on down the road adjusting the axle.

Mine is an 06 2500.
Thanks for the advise.
