I would try to find some guys locally that can help you with a different lift. For 50 bucks more you can get the Toytec lift or you can get Bilsteins on all 4 corners for around 279. Just my opinion, I would stay away from spacers and blocks. Ask around, I'm sure there are some people that may help.

could you take the truck to a shop and let them install new shocks for you?

I'm not a big fan of spacer lifts...

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks,the lift is mainly for looks,as it dosent get offroad much if at all.Maby I am looking at the kit wrong,from my eyes,if the strut dosent have to be disassembled how would the ride quality change much ? I see how a coil spacer would harshen up the ride as it is putting more pressure on the spring.Is my thinking wrong ? Also I would love a set of coil overs but 250ish is about as much as I can spend on a lift without the misses raising an eye brow,lol.

Thanks

A top plate spacer wont affect the ride quality, but it legthens the shock/spring assembly. It will ruin your ball joints, and can break your shocks if you hit a pot hole or something. 06Bluez had a 3" top plate lift on his truck for 5000 miles, and his Ball joints were destroyed. He did some mild off rooading, and his front shock brock in half.
