i did ask couple of people in mod shop. they said kw v3 coil over is for "cars", not trucks. you wont even feel a lot on the truck and it gonna be 4G you spend on it.
I would avoid your mod shop.

Sounds like they mod KIA's.

Any advanced "shop" would tell you KW are high quality and a quick search on their website lists X5 M and X6 M as suitable.

Fully adjustable dampening / rebound and ride height settings.

Also, should not cost more than $2799.

Forget the over priced Dinan and the enormous 1" drop.

Take it for what it's worth and search the forums for previous similar threads.

See above reply.

I think the KW were the best mod for
my truck.

No body roll whatsoever. And super comfortable. Suppose I could dial in the dampening and rebound based on whether I'm Tracking the monster or just street driving.

I'm afraid of the HR springs. Hit an unleveled bump going 55+ and your rear may bounce in an unsafe manner

Ride comfort and drop is superior to springs. Do it!

the aftermarket angle eyes are white LEDs while the stock are just amber bulbs, the LEDs make it look wary meaner.

UPDATE
Picking up the baby from the shop today, gonna be driving about 800miles in the next 2 days and documenting most of it. Ill have plenty of pictures and videos to show you guys. Its gonna be insane. Official power gain with the tune was between 80-90bhp, and 130ft/lb or torque, supposed to run mid/high 3's to sixty, and 1/4 miles in the high 11s.

To the guys at velos, the tune is insane. I drove a stock e60 m5 today after putting 400 miles on my car in the last couple days and it felt like I was driving a prius. I didn't realize how fast my car actually is in comparison to others.
