So I've finally decided to do the coilover shocks on the front. I got the lower brackets and top stud mount from Atomic. Then order shocks from viking and coils from Hypercoil. Install was pretty easy it took me about 2 hours from start to finish. I'm still working on getting everything set, but first driving impressions were impressive. The truck rides smoother than the 2017 Colorado I'm driving now. Atomic's work is top notch and fit perfectly. He was helpful with shock and spring selection and answered all my emails/text in a timely fashion. Couldn't ask for better service.
COILOVER SHOCKS INSTALLED

I will get some. Weather turned to shit, so I was trying to get it back in the garage before it snowed.

Congrats on completing a cool mod. I've got the parts ready to go, just haven't had the time to dive in yet.
What did you use for a torsion bar un-loader?

I just pulled the adjuster bolts out and took all the tension off. Came apart pretty easy really.

I got the brackets and mounts from Atomic. The shocks and springs should be specific to you application and he has a installation guide that list what shocks and springs depending on ride height, vehicle weight... but the shocks I used were Viking c203-R double adjustable, with a stud mount. Springs were Hypercoil 2.5 diameter, 8 inch long, and 900 lbs.
