I've got a dumb question, what's the difference between a long travel kit and say... a setup that includes the following?
The setup you mentioned replaces the factory shocks, leaf springs, and coil overs, but maintains the factory Upper Control Arm and Lower Control Arm. This won't increase your track width or wheel travel, but you will see some lift and a slight performance increase over the factory setup.
A Long Travel System uses longer Upper Control Arms, Lower Control Arms, and Longer Shocks which gives you a wider stance and increased wheel travel. Other components are also extended like the tie rods and axle shafts (if you need to maintain 4WD). A LT system gives you a significant performance increase while keeping the center of gravity low.
Thank you for that, so essentially instead of purchasing just UCA from y'all I should purchase your Long Travel Kit? I'd love the wider stance but I'm not sure if I need increased wheel travel as right now I do not anticipate doing any crazy off roading, especially (with all due respect) to the price.
If you're mostly looking for the wider stance and increased performance but can't spend the money on LT, I'd recommend a set of UCA's, a different coil over shock, and different wheels with a change in backspacing to push the wheel out. You can use wheel spacers instead.
