Looks good Chase. What advantages are there for using the mono spring?
Is this applicable for a long bed?

Would the rear swaybar be recommended to complete this kit? I know it's a complete package but only comes with the front swaybar. Curious if this kit doesn't require it. Thanks in advance!

The composite springs eliminate spring sag and reduce the unsprung weight by around 70lbs. They also provide a great ride quality and improve the handling.

We have not done any testing on long bed trucks but I don't foresee any issues. The ride height may end up being slightly lower due to the extra weight but I can't say for sure.

In our testing, we didn't see the need to add in a rear sway bar. The new Composite leafs, Delrin bushings, and HQ Shocks do a great job keeping the rear of the truck planted.

Currently installing Stretgrip on my 72 SWB C10, and was wondering is there a suggested set of alignment specs?
Thanks

Shoot for 0.5-1 Deg Negative Camber. 3-5 deg of Positive Caster and keep the Toe around 1/16" to 1/8" toe in.
That should get you in a pretty good position.

Do you see a need for bump stop, what is the preferred solution, as I cannot see in instructions?

thanks

I prefer to run a bumpstop just in case. Is it necessary? That only depends on the type of driving conditions that you have.
Most of the roads that I drive on are fairly smooth so its unlikely that I would ever see conditions that would cause my suspension to be under a full compression stroke BUT I like the peace of mind that its there if I need it.

Thanks John, I like peace of mind too. So having removed rear bump stops for C Notch, how do you suggest reinstating a bump stock? Factory one would give no travel room. thanks

I run our little 1/2" bump stop. Part # 90001082. Retail I think they are $4 a piece, good piece of mind when you think it could prevent tearing up a set of $700 coilovers.
Check out the link below.

If you need a pair, let me know. I can just drop ship them to you.

Back on the ground, need to alter one tail pipe, and tail shaft appears to be very tight for length (it was most likely like this already but this work has raised issue), but very happy how it sits
