The Alpha 1.5" kits are intended for the customer looking for a comfortable street ride, excellent towing authority, and a stable rearend for higher hp platforms.
We have designed these kits around 2 basic principles. We upgrade the front to a quality dual rate coil spring which will provide a nice smooth ride on the street and improved offroad ability offering an additional 3+" of travel over a stock. The rear is designed around the stock rear spring. The '08+ trucks come stock with a leaf pack that offers a great compromise between ride quality and towing capacity. With the Alpha series, the rear spring will be supplemented with a traction bar kit to give it a stable base when towing or any other performance scenario. We do not use Add-a-Leafs as these will stiffen up the ride.
This kit includes:
1.5" Icon Progressive Rate Coils
3 or 4-link Front Link System
HD Direct Replacement Adjustable Trackbar
Stage 2 Gusseted Traction Bar Kit w/ Bottom Nut Ubolt Mount
Ubolts (your choice of diameter)
Choice of Shocks
KIT IS SETUP FOR A 2" FACTORY BLOCK. SOME TRUCKS HAVE LARGER SIZES, YOU MUST LET US KNOW IF YOU DO SO WE CAN ADJUST THE UBOLT LENGTH!
For the front end you have two options. First we have our Short Arm 4-Link. This is designed to give you the most control over axle and wheel hop. It will keep your frontend planted for even the most brutal 4 hi launches or sled pulls. This option is more tailored towards the customer looking for every last drop of performance out of their frontend. The down side is a small sacrifice of cushion for harsh road impacts such as pot holes and expansion joints. The other options is to use of our Adjustable 3-Link Arms. With these, you will notice tighter steering response, better street characteristics, and a more comfortable ride. The increased strength of the link arms will have better control over the axle and allow for more articulation and shock absorption offroad. This will make for smoother operation when hitting anything from potholes to whoops! Regardless of which option you choose you will have the ability to adjust castor to your desired specs.
This kit comes standard with our HD Replacement Adjustable Track Bar. This is a direct plug and play setup. This a heavy duty trackbar is constructed from 1.5" OD .250 DOM with an oversized 1" FK heim joint. Most other manufactures will use a poly or smaller heim joint. With an oversized joint such as we use you will get the most durability and least worry of steering related problems.
The rear end is designed to retain your OEM leaf pack in order to maintain factory payload capacities. This kit uses OEM rear blocks. If you wish to alter the height of the rear, we offer custom built block kits which can be added separately. The rear system comes standard with our Stage 2 Gusseted traction bar kit with our Bottom Nut Ubolt mount to prevent any concerns of axle wrap or wheel hop that both high hp trucks and tow rigs will appreciate!
This kit comes standard with 5/8" ubolts configured for a 2" block height. If your truck had a build package with a taller block, YOU MUST LET US KNOW SO WE CAN ADJUST THE UBOLT LENGTH!! For high hp and performance applications we recommend upgrading to the 3/4" ubolts. This is a HUGE upgrade over the strength of the OEM 5/8". When selecting the ubolts choose either a single rear wheel (SRW) or dual rear wheel (DRW).
Leaf Pack Type:
Determine what type of leaf pack you have. A standard leaf pack will consist of a leaf configuration where the top most leaf runs full length from eyelet to eyelet. A standard leaf pack will have a thickness of 2-3". If your pack is thicker than this choose the "top mounted overload option". A truck with a "top mounted overload" will have a small spacer between the main pack and the top overload which is not connect to anything at each end.
We have many different shock options available. All of our shocks are valved specifically for this application. For the customer looking for some improvement in looks and performance the 5100 shock is a great all around buy. The 5160 steps up its game and offers a resi. There is a definite improvement in on and offroad performance. The seal orientation on these is better for salty and harsh environments. For the customer looking for the ultimate performance we offer our custom tuned King 2.5's! These will give you the absolute best on and offroad performance!
**SOME KING SHOCKS MAY HAVE BLACK VS. BLUE HOSES AS WE ARE PHASING OUT BLUES. IF COLOR MATTERS FOR YOU PLEASE CONTACT US OR LEAVE A COMMENT ON YOUR ORDER**
