Yes sir! I spent this last Sunday getting the lift on, and then finished up the wheel and tire swap Monday.
So new part consist of:
Readylift 3/2 spacers
New lower ball joints (Moog)
New upper control arms(Front)
New strut assemblies ( All 4 )
And of course new wheels and tires!
@MissileMech: Looking good buddy! How is the Expy handling with the tires sticking out that far? Just curious because I almost got some wheels that would have pushed my tires out further, which is a look that I like, but ran into some info about "scrub radius". Supposedly too much or too little...
Okay, the tires arrived today. I'm so pumped to get these on. I have to say that for a re-tread, these things look gorgeous. We'll see how they balance out though.
I'll be doing the install on Dec. 20 or 21, will post before and after photos.
For now here are some photos of the tires, and...
Looks great! I will have pictures up of my project too. My tires are shipping today and my suspension pieces will be here Wednesday. I wonder what I'll be up to this weekend?!
Would you mind sharing your source for the spacers? Just in case I end up needing them.
Oh man, that doesn't sound nice. I see that you have the Ranchos on your expy. I'm hoping that by running the ReadyLift spacers I have which are 3/2 (Front / Rear, respectively) I will be able to squeeze these tires in there like DetroitDarin has done. If not, then this is going to suck bad.
The trigger hath been pulleth'd!
Treadwright ran an irresistible Black Friday deal, free shipping on all tires, any size.
So I'm going with the 315/70/17 Guard Dogs with Kedge Grip. Go big or go home I guess LOL.

Eibach is a reputable company, and so is Hellwig. I am sure that Eibach stopped production due to lack of sales. I don't think with the amount of great products Eibach turns out, that they would have botched a simple sway bar. Also Eibach wouldn't be the first company I've heard of discontinuing...
A little over $200 sounds about right. I know when I had my 2010 F-150, CA registration was about equivalent to one monthly payment on the truck. If I remember correctly a little over or under $600 :pp:
This is how State Farm characterizes my "truck". I've always called it my truck, but I guess I am just trying to cover up the fact that I drive a "Sport Wagon". The text below is straight off of my insurance card.
WTF, ego smashed...
