I know that there are a lot of threads like this and I think I have read through most of them but I still left with a few questions.
First of all I had no plans of lifting my truck but after carrying a few heavy loads and pulling a trailer I really want to do an aal to handle these situations better. I know if I just do the aal I will end up with a ridicilous rake so that got me thinking about lifting the front too.
I have a 2012 sport with the 4 leaf spring pack. Right now I measure about 1.5" high in the rear and I was going to add the Icon 3 leaf progressive aal which would bring me up to 3" high in the rear. I was going to add bilstien 5100 extended shock as per dsm. Up front I plan to change to 5100's set at 1.75" (I am fine with some rake) on the stock springs.
I can do all the work myself (except the alignment) and I can get the parts to my door for a little under $500. My question is am I wasting my money here? Should I really be thinking about a different lift? At this point I don't want to go to high and get into a lot of other parts ($) like uca's. Also I don't really off-road because where I live there isn't anywhere to go except for the occasional farm road, job site and beach.
Any thoughts will be appreciated or just point me to the right thread. Thanks for reading my ramble.
