Halolifts Coilover - Group Buy Info in First Post!

Sorry to be off topic but just noticed that Halolifts is offering 15% off with coupon code independenceday2023 and pulled the trigger on the Boss mountain package for the wife’s new 2023 Tremor we just picked up from Granger on Monday.

Seems that is exactly on topic!
 
Curious is anyone has the wheel travel numbers for the front coil over with the SPC UCAs? Also how is the ride vs. stock. I am considering halo 2.0s up front with bilstein 5165 in the rear.

Plenty of info in this thread on ride quality and characteristics. Why would you want to mix and match shocks?
 
Halo rears are a inch shorter than stock and some posted the rears don’t perform as well as they would like… 5165 have 13inch stroke vs. halo rear is 11.4 or something.

Not sure on the length as I didn't measure before putting mine in, but with different valving between brands you will have different ride characteristics front to back. I don't think anyone will be able to answer your question about ride vs stock unless they are also running this mismatched combo.
 
Hey Yeti, were you able to obtain this information by chance?

I'm looking at somewhat similar setup to what you have and planning a build with a winch, and carrying about 400lbs in the rear depending on trips. The lack of information on shock specifications can get annoying. At this point I'm still deciding between the 2.5 IFP package or doing a mix of off the shelf shocks (5165 for the rear, undecided on the front)
Did you decide on the front? I am thinking Halo 2.0s with the 5165 in rear similar to direction
 
I just pulled the trigger on a 2.0 mountain set up with the Black Friday sale. My credit card is smoking. I wanted the 2.5, but dang $1600 more is nearly double the cost. I don't know if it's worth it for a pavement princess for me. I have a Jeep on 37's for the trails, the Tremor is my daily.
 
Installed today! Rides great. It's at the alignment shop now getting everything sorted. Took me about 3 hours to put it all in and some of that was looking for a dropped upper coil over bolt. It was hiding in the rack and pinion bracket mount.

glad to hear it, I just went with the 2.5" Elka setup so I'm hoping for the same results. Also got the RAS to install as well so hopefully I can keep the rear higher for less squat when towing. Looks Great @zimm, are you going to go with bigger tires?

Looks great. How much preload did you have the coils set to and how much lift did you get out of it? I bought this same kit on their black Friday sale and hope to install this weekend.

I'm going with 295/70R18 Toyo AT III, but after I wear these down some more. Only have 10k miles on them so far.

They came set at 6 turns down, which is how I installed them. I'm right about 2" over stock. Driver's side is 3/4" lower than passenger. Halolift said to let it settle for a week and then I can adjust them to level out the truck left to right.

You'll be happy with those. I have same tire just slightly taller.
 
I'm running the Halo Mountain Boss kit as well. I really like the ride and handling over stock. The rear shocks got rid of wheel hop as well

I see you too put the little bracket on that control arm and there's no sensor on that side. I figured it's better to have a bolt in the hole than leave it open...

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. Im gonna tackle the install this weekend and will report back. That’s interesting, I was thinking about this same thing while waiting for the kit wondering if each side was going to need a different preload. Coming from Toyota, some kits would also include a shim to level out driver to passenger side.

lol my RZR 4 seat turbo S sags on driver side. It’s my fat butt doing it I’m sure but I did just get new suspension for it as well to combat that. I’m glad you mentioned that though so I don’t freak myself out when/if I see it.

Exactly

That's really odd. Mine came with roughly 4 inches of preload and I'm 3/8" lower. Unless someone put a 14" spring, the math makes no sense. It does still rude like a 700# spring, though.

I'm in queue at my suspension shop to get the springs switched out for the eibach 650# which I'm guessing will still be a bit stiff but won't need that much preload.

I just installed the 2.0s this weekend on a 22 with no other mods. With the red collar turned up to be inline with the shock top (no threads showing) it’s sitting 1-7/8” higher than stock. It left me with 2” of rake, which is what I need to tow my pop up. Not a drastic change, but what I was going for. I’ll see how it settles before taking it to get an alignment on Friday. Also, truck sits even left to right, I know others have stated otherwise.
The ride did get a bit firmer. At low speeds (under 30MPH), you can feel the imperfections in the asphalt like cracks and joints more, but over 30 MPH it’s still buttery smooth. My wife and kids can’t tell a difference, which is what I was hoping for.
