Default Dobinson 701v rear coils

Installed the Dodinson 701v coils over the weekend at my buddy Aha Austin’s home/shop. Everything went super smooth during the install. Had to drop an upper link one side at a time to get the LT coils out and the new Dobi LT coils in.
Initial ride seemed about the same as the HD Metaltech coils but then on the ride home I could tell that they handled the weight better over bumps and in turns. I did gain about ¾”-1” of rear lift and have a bit more rake now, but I like the rake look. I will be upgrading the front end soon anyway and might be able to get a tad ¾’- 1” higher up front. These ride very smooth and not firm or stiff. They handle weight nicely and very controlled over bumps. They also seem to help with body roll and a little with sway. I feel like my front end needs to be rebuilt or redone now, lol. I do not have a front or rear swaybar either.

Riding around for a couple of days now. I would recommend them at this point to anyone that has a super heavy truck like mine with about 400 lbs on the rear.


They’re purdy and a nice touch of color underneath.

Beside the Metaltech Heavies, they’re about ¾” taller at 19.8” tall.

On a side note my old heavy duty LT Metaltech coils will be up for sale soon. Thinking $180 priced to sell. PM if you’re interested.

@Darklight Your build thread has been inspirational for me bro.

I'm talking to Mike at Dobinsons about springs for the rear of my rig based on your suggestion, as i'm hoping to complete my 4x4labs bumper soon.


Keep up the good work sir.

Thanks man, that's what it's all about helping each other out and sharing experiences.
I appreciate it. Been 9 years in the making part by part and piece by piece. It's been a great truck in all of its stages. I'm ready to take it to the next soon though.

Nice! I've been looking at Dobinson for the rear as well, so it's nice to know you like them.

How's the price point?

Reach out to Mike from Dodinson mike@dobinsonusa.com, he was very helpful and patient with all my questions.
They ride very nice and body roll has been reduced as well. They handle the weight way better then the MT coils. They have other options for folks without all the extra weight or rear bumpers, with linear rate or with variable rate for LT or non LT option too.
My buddy PD who turned me on to them recently upgraded to the 675v LT coils coming from the medium duty Metaltech LT coils and he loves his too.

I knew there was someone on one of my forums I promised to help, however I couldn't recall who and just found my post about it. Did you get it all figured out?

Just going to leave this here from Total Chaos

OE bolt-in Kings are 5.067” travel (22.375” extended/17.308” collapsed) and their shocks for our LT kits are 7.564” travel (25.119” extended/17.555” collapsed).


UCA/Extended travel coilovers net about 9” of wheel travel

+2” LT kit 11.5” wheel travel

+3.5” 13.5” wheel travel

The wider you go the more wheel travel you get.

Don't like hearing the wear rate of my STT Pro's? LOL me either. But my Kelly Safari TSR's were about the same 40k ish.

lol, lots of folks running them and like them. They seem to have a softer compound which will wear faster but probably hook up better on the rocks and not chunk as badly.
The KM2 has been a great tire for my needs. I see a KM3 is being tested right now and due to come out mid next year. If I could wait that long than I would have.

Default 315/75R16 installed 127,777 on the clock

Tires are on and way more proportionate to the truck. Driving seems perfect with the 4.56’s, sits a little higher up and these were a little bigger than I was expecting, especially compared to a 305/70r16 and 285/75r16
Speedo is off a good bit now, at 70 says I’m going 77 so not to bad but will address.
They rub a good bit and will be some work to get them to fit properly or a larger body lift, which I don’t plan on doing.
Things I need to address,
1) Sliders need to be cut back a good 1.5” and recapped asap. Stubbs sliders are pretty long. Alternative would be cut them off and get a s=different set or set them back about 2” iinches. To much work and will just trim them. Richard Stubbs says it’s not a problem and easy to just trim them on the truck.
2) Body Mount chop chopped even more lol. Might need to take a big portion out of my already chopped body mount. Not too concerned about it. I see some folks have there whole body mount buthered almost to the frame. Won’t be that excessive for mine.
3) Pinch welds that are beaten will need to be criss cross cut and beaten more. A little concerned that they might open up and not be fixable without a welder. Don’t have one handy or I would cut out the portion and replate it. Might do that for the long run.
4) Possibly upper portion of the stock plastic fenders. Initially I planed on trimming 3” out of the entire stock plastic fenders. Not sure I need to yet, off road /flex testing will let me know for sure. Already planning on LT though so I contacted McNeil racing and Advanced Glass (formerly Glassworks) about their fenders. It sounds like my three hoop Demello may come into contact with the front portion of any glass fenders. Might be able to drop my bumper a hair for more clearance not sure though.

Anyone with glass and a three hoop have any comments?

On to the install pictures.
