So took me about a year to decide what to do and this is what fit my budget and also the type of trails I do....

Camburg 1.25" uniball upper a-arms

Fox 2.5 factory performance coilovers with remote reservoir

Limit straps and sway bar removed and also fox 2.0 bumps

I also did the total chaos fab coil bucket gusset kit ( pain in the ass btw )

A few pictures from tonight installing a few of the items....

The first picture is the truck with the factory trail team suspension and a procomp leveling kit



The rest are progress pictures I tried to take but I was busy did everything in about 4 hours with a buddy

Frame getting cleaned up for the gusset kit




Gusset kit tac welded in



Mocking up the shock and everything painted


Finally everything together very happy with the final product

I've never heard of anyone breaking a shock tower. Is that a 'racing' type of stress point? Spindle I've heard, yes, but shock tower no?

Iv seen a lot of bent ones and my truck I owned before this, nissan Titan I did a long travel kit on I bent mine so bad I had to cut it out and build Shock hoops so learning from experience I decided to just do it for the strength rather then regret it later
