Upcoming Review -- Boss Coilovers for GM 1500 trucks

Postby Onlyina_Chevy [OP] » Feb 22 2017, 12:38am

Boss' new 2007-UP GM Silverado/Sierra 1500 Boss Coilovers from Halo Lifts out of Broomfield, CO.
This new setup will deliver a flat cut a 700 lb/in Eibach coil spring with top cover and additional spacers under mount to give the driver his/her choice of additional height; spacers are 0.25" to 0.5" at the base which translates into 0.5" to 1" of additional lift to the 2" taller coilover system. The Boss shock body (made by Eibach Springs) is a 2" steel threaded for truck height adjustment (see picture below).


Once I get 'em in and on, I will post my review.

They've received 50 sets of the coilovers for new sales:

Onlyina_Chevy: do you have a diagram of that system Jasen?
