Alignment coil ??

Hey all, this my first post but been reading this bbs for over a year and you all seem really cool so I thought I would come to the experts for advice!!! I have a '89 fullsize V-8 2wd (yes 2wd) anyhoo...I just put new BFG's 31x10.50's on and cant decide whether or not to put a 2 in. body lift....local 4wd shop wanted $575 to do it and said it might need an alignment coil when done...i dont even know what this is???!!! is he bs'in me or does a 2wd require an "alingment coil" ??? One more question....would a 2wd with 31's look cheesy with a 2inch body lift??? sorry bout the long post but like most, i'm still tryin to learn!!! thanx for any input guys!!!!!!!!

Re: Alignment coil ??

The guy is BSing you to the extreme man. I have no idea what an alignment coil is. Not to mention, for that much money, you could get a Fabtech lift for your 2wd and do it right. Tell him where to shove it and find someone else.

Re: Alignment coil ??

Hey,

I have actually been thinking about going the two wheel drive route myself next time. But anyways I would go with fabtech's 3" spindles. This would give you enough room for the 31's, level the truck and I think you still use your stock coils and steering components. All you would need is maybe and alignment, if that even.

I just checked and fabtech is offering $75 off the spindles till the end of the year. Plus replacing the spindle is something you should be able to do yourself probably.

Here is the site.

Actually check out fabtetch's 3" basic system. Ball joint spacers and new coils to clear your 31's easily, up to 32's. You can get it from National Tire and Wheel for under $365.

Re: Alignment coil ??

Thanx for the info. guys, i appreciate it!! i kinda new that b*stard was tryin to sell me snake oil, or in this case an alingment coil. As long as i've been reading this board i've never heard anyone mention anything like that before!! i really hate to ask the same question again but would 31X10.50's look to small on a fullsize with a couple inches of lift?? i just paid almost $500 for them and i cant get rid of them so soon!!! thanks again!!!

Re: Alignment coil ??

With the 3" Fabtech lift 31's will look fine. 32's will give it a more beefy/wide stance, but don't worry, little kids won't be laughing and pointing. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
