nope, both the 5100 and the spacer compress the spring. You can't add em together or I would have done it ages ago!

4x4 = 3" spacer or Coilover, Lot of options
6" Fabtech or Procomp
4.5" RCD

4x2 = 4" spindle lift, plus above said lift opt...

Also: LT for these set up's.

It's all in the power of the SEARCH button. More is not alway better. R&D is done for a reason,

Leave it as is then, J/K

Dude, you cant stack...

6" only opt is Fab Tech or Procomp, Please SEARCH

4.5" RCD Still in the making (I cant even find a website w/ 05+ App.)

3" is really 2.25" - 3.5" depending on which make you go with. Survey say's, go w/Coil overs... Spacers suck. But get the job done for a cheap quick remedy.

There are Long Travel Kits, but If you Dont research and learn this stuff first hand you will be making mortgage payments to your local suspension shop, LOL...

Personally, Keep it simple. Decide the look you want, and the primary use of your truck. Should be cake after you figure that all out...

the max you can go is 3" without f*ckin sh*t up....anymore than that puts a a lot of strain on ball joints, cv shafts, etc. You probably couldn't get it aligned.
