Finally got the lift installed (pics)

I've had the lift for 6 months and finally got it installed. Up front is 5100's at lowest setting with eibach 3" springs. Also put in a 1" diff drop. In the back are Skyjacker 2.5" leaf packs with new U-bolts and 2.5 degree shims. Rear shocks are billy 5125's. Also has rear extended brake line and brake proportion valve bracket. Attached are a before and after pic.

springs

The ride is great but my stock springs and shocks were shot. The springs were beyond flat. The skyjacker springs gave me more lift then I thought they would about 3 1/2". I'm sure they will settle a little.

Looks good man. I have a dc too, and I have the eibachs ready to install. Happy with the ride so far? any pictures of the install? Lastly, I think I may look into getting a new leaf pack sometime in the future. Do you like the way the skyjacker pack made your truck ride and sit. Did you measure to see how level the truck is?
