Thank you for providing us that update! I'm hopeful that recent conversations have sparked that change..... I just got my bushing kit and am headed to my shop next week. How long did you have to wait for reimbursement form Daystar?
I emailed the required documentation 19 May, so about 6 weeks.

I just installed the Pro RK kit but can seem get an answer for the following:

I wanted to order a set of falcons 3.3 Sp2.

The choice I have is 2-3" or 3.5 -4.5" so which would be the correct one for the kit?

As I keep getting mixed answers of which one to order.

I just finished installing this kit topped off with some Falcon SP2 Shocks and 37s and she rides amazing. I will say getting the progressive springs Installed in my drive way was a little more work than I anticipated but we’ll worth the effort :note picture was taken at a tire shop while getting my 37s installed. Gears following in 2 weeks.

Which falcon shocks did you add? The 2-3" or 3.5 to 4.5" shocks?

You'll need to purchase them based on their extended and compressed dimensions, not based on their suggested lift heights.

Shock Notes:
Generic Front Shock Length – 17.5” Collapsed/ 29.5” Maximum Extended
Generic Rear Shock Length – 17” Collapsed/ 28” Maximum Extended

Thanks 😊 really appreciated.

Hope you can help me with a Technical issues I am now facing with the kit.

I noticed my front coil spring bow forward, what would be the cause and the solution?

could be a handful of things, do you have a printout from the alignment rack? Have you double checked that both of the rubber nipples on the top coil isolator are sticking through the mount? I can see one of the nipples in the photos but I can't see the other.

On another note, the brake line brackets that you have ziptied on your lower control arms should be removed entirely from the brake line.

Ill get some better pictures from the top and will remove the brake line bracket.

When you mean the alignment rack youean the alignment readings done a tire shop?

Yes, you should always get a printout when you get an alignment and keep it in your records. This helps for diagnosing all sorts of drivability issues when they arise.

I can confirm both of the rubber nipples on the top coil isolator are sticking through both sides passenger and driver.

Gotcha, so check caster and see where that's at. Low caster numbers will drive the springs forward like that and in taking a 2nd look at the photos, it looks like thats going to be your answer.

Ok ill get that looked and then report back. I thought maybe I needed to purchase correction coil pads but I noticed I had them already provided In my RK Pro complete kit.

Yup, they're already there and positioned correctly.
