I have a 2008 4.6L DC 4x4 6ft bed tow package (no off road package).
i read the faq thread. I want to do the lift where i add shocks to the front and an AAL kit in the back.
I would like to use the Bilstein 5100s (unless i can get more travel with OME brand).
If i put 5100s in the front, i can rais ethem to about 2"-2.5" ...correct?
If i put them in the rear its just new shocks, and the AAL is what provides the lift? Thats fine, but i want to know what to get. Do i need to extend a brake line or somethign or a diff drop?
I was going to order the 5100s for the front. Then i saw in the faq thread
"OME makes longer shocks which are designed for a 3" lift. This will allow better articulation of your suspension. BUT! Remember with the increased travel you will need longer brake lines."
so, im like...let me order the OME ....but when i go to Wheelers web site, all i see if the shocks in a kit.
im lost. here is what I want to do.
I want to put slightly larger tires on my truck. like 32-33" tires.
So from what Ive read, i can change the front shocks and get added height in the front. Then get a AAL kit for the rear and then get the same. Where did i go wrong? I am not sure if I am reading Wheelers site worng or what. Maybe Im over thinking everything.
I know asking "which shocks" will result in everyone pointing and laughing at me and calling me names. so i wont ask that. I want to get the shocks that have the most amoutn of down travel (causes down travel is good right?). So thats the OME shocks ...correct? Which ones?
Is this what I want for the front?
0-2.5" Lift Adjustable Front Shock Set:170.00/pair
This is what I want for the rear?
2" Add a Leaf Kit:77.50 A single leaf Add A Leaf Set, works with your factory length u-bolts.
Fits the factory TSB leaf springs, too!
