you are going to have to reword this buddy, I'm a bit lost.

Coilovers don't kick out you tires more. Just put a jack under your truck and lift it 3" from stock and that is how much will show.

ohhh ok got it, you should just crank them up to what you feel looks good to the eye. Level them out by taking a tape measure to your front fenders driver and passenger. My buddies when for a slight rake.

thread revival!

I was just comparing my lift to the rest of the guys and felt that I'm a little on the short side and I've also got those outdated but still amazing DR coilovers. I was in the curious as well as to how much thread should be exposed above the adjustment ring to give me the official 3" lift. I just measured and I've got 1.5" of thread exposed above the ring for what it's worth.
