Your next upgrade needs to be a newer style steering wheel to go with the TD5 dash.

Got the new front springs, shocks and TerraFirma turret rings installed today. Found one of the shock turrets was pretty rotted out, luckily I had a spare laying around. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the rear shocks and springs done tomorrow.

First impression is the ride of new factory springs and the TerraFirma All-Terrain shocks is outstanding. Better than OME and Blings that I have run in the past.

The shocks that were on it I'm sure were done, they were original!

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the tighter coils should go at the top. I don't really know what difference it makes, but that's what I've always heard.

x2, I think the theory is it helps to not collect mud/rocks/etc at the bottom of the spring.

The original springs were tighter coils at the bottom so I went that route. I honestly don't know if it's right but it rides great! I was out having a blast with it in the snow this morning. I can't bring myself to lay in the snow and deal with the rears today lol

I had shock work done on my front a few ninths back. This photo will hopefully give you some ideas.
