Can't wait to see pic.. And wondering if u ever put a video together of ur set up to the test yet?
sorry meant old man emu struts
Would love to see some pics of the full setup, front and back!
Another think to keep in mind is the strut tower will need to be braced very well. It wasnt designed to support the weight of the vehicle.
Here is some pics of my 3" strut kit and my 4 1/2" complete lift kits . Pics to be posted tomorrow of kit installations
....And I have not heard of a single strut tower collasping using Trail Slayer's kit.

Shocks and struts are different, and "coil-overs" are even more different. If you look at the trail slayer kit it does not mount a "coil" on the original strut tower, it actually uses the original coil location. The strut tower wasnt originally designed to hold the weight of the vehicle which a coilover will put on it. A strut brace will help the "horizontal" shifting of the strut towers, but it will not provide additional "strength" to it. If anyone wheels their trackicks hard you will often see the Camber issues that develop from these strut towers bending inward. I have seen it on many....I have added strut braces which slow it down and help, but ultimately these things were not built for hardcore offroading. (hasnt stopped me )From the pictures, I would be very leery to run coil-overs on the original strut towers. Actually I personally would not do so, or let any friends/family, with out further trussing or plating for strength. I commend kreator for creating and working on this lift kit....we definitely need more vendor support for these rigs.....Hopefully the work continues and adjustments/refinements are made.
