shocks vs. coils...for the front lift to compliment the rear TSB springs?

Is there a 1" coil, or is my only option the Eibach 1-1/2" or OME 1-1/2"?

And if I go with the 1-1/2" coils...will it be front high w/ a sagging rear?

Or, do I just say eff-it and go with the 5100's set at .85?

I don't rock climb or "wheel"...I do haul full loads and tow occasionally.

I got the TSB for load. the lift is nice...but I want to raise the front...maintaining a factory look and ride (just a little higher). I rather have the rear a bit higher unloaded, but level is probably ok.

Also, I'll be upgrading the Dunlap 245/75's for some 265/75 tires in the future.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Thanks.

I agree with Brunes. Check out skistoy's truck. He has the billy's at 0.85 with the TSB, and is close to factory rake.

If you want to be level, set them at 1.75. See my build for how that will look.

I'm getting the new TSB springs Friday. I will be curious to see how different it looks. Sounds like I should give it a few months to settle down before messing with the front end.

Just figure on it settling to about 1" of rear lift and go from there...no need to wait.

Thanks man.

Your build is awesome.

I like the level look @ 1.75 as well...but with the 245's and even with future 265's...it probably wouldn't look as good as your's with those 18" wheels.
