Fabtech 3.5" front hanger kit

Im looking into getting one at a good deal for my 2000 psd. How hard would it be to add 2 more inches later? Id like to eventually put 37's under her, but right now 35's. Would I need to purchase anything else?

Re: Fabtech 3.5" front hanger kit

I'd do an adjustable trac bar and some good shocks with it.

And I'd recommend the Fabtech kit that includes the new longer shackles vs. the relocation bracket.


You could easily add 2" to it down the line (you'd need a spring pack, or mini spring pack and a front box kit to go along with whatever you order for the rear).

Does it rub bad and what offset rims do you have?

Re: Fabtech 3.5" front hanger kit

It did rub, but all i had to do was trim the inner fender thing back a bit, the I dont remember the offset exactly, I know they are 17x9 and with a 2'' spacer we got exactly where we wanted to be offset wise, however i dont remember that number lol

Re: Fabtech 3.5" front hanger kit

I run the Fabtech 3.5 with factory springs. The springs I run might even be Excursion spring as they have almost have a negative arch to them.

Rides nice, and has the stance I wanted though. 35s clear no problem. One day I might add 2" spring packs just to get rid of the "stuffed" look.
