    Have a 2016 Trail Premium with KDSS on order and want to upgrade the suspension. Plans were to use TC uppers and lowers as well as the TC trailing arms and panhard bar. I've been told recently that I can't use the lowers due to the KDSS being in place. Not having the truck in front of me I can't look and see why which as you can imagine is frustrating.

    I'm also wanting to go with 2.5" ADS front and rear with remote reservoirs in the front and piggy back reservoirs in the rear. I'll stick with factory backspace wheels and add at the largest a 33" tire.

    Any tips or advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

    Can you elaborate on whey you can't use the lowers? I have a 2016 TEP and there is A LOT of misinformation out there as to what you can do lift wise with KDSS. If I can take some pictures on mine or take any measurements, please let me know. So far, I haven't seen any issues except for the fact you need to take some care when doing the actual lift.

    Cheers, James

    James, sadly the only information I have is that you can't. No reason as to why yet. I'm still three to four weeks out on the truck so I have to wait to see my own, so pictures of yours would be great.
