Why not get Don's since you already have his components ?

Id save up and go with a set of his. it will be well worth the wait. I had a pair of cheap control arms and my truck and it rode like crap. Upgraded and it fixed all the issues i was having.

Hey just curious how do those thuren coils ride? i want a set of his 6" ones.

I have a 3.5" lift with TGC short control arms. They have grease fittngs etc. and are built pretty solid. Truck rides like a cadillac. I couldn't imagine what a long arm kit would ride like. My axle is perfectly centered, if anything it may be a bit foward which is good so the wheel is well away from the fender. I think you can pick them up for about $240.

1/2 inch to 5/8 inch longer.... With good quality control arms, the ride is definitely improved, no deflection, let the springs and shocks do the work like they're supposed to. Can't go wrong with Don's stuff, excellent...

I added 5/8" control arms to my KORE springs, centered the axle nicely, drive is good, no interference anywhere. Mine are Black Ops Diesel arms. Do a search, I think the thread is in the 6.7 forums.

i also added longer arms 5/8 ( i think ) from Top Gun C. & they made a world of differance. I really like the quality of them & they also have the grease fittings. But i would check out the ones an earlier poster listed as Don has a set laying around....may be able to get a good deal.

TGC all the way. I like mine a lot. Great welds and pretty beefy for a great price. I can email pics installed if you'd like
