Keep an eye on the buy/sell/trade areas. You'll find you can get a complete set of Billstein 5100s for $100 used.

The front Billsteins are adjustable. You can buy a cheap add-a-leaf for the rear if you want lift there too, but you'll want the longer shocks to handle the increased height anyway.

Are you lifting for performance or looks?

That's why I asked what your purpose is in lifting. Spacers make the ride more harsh.

If you're doing this for looks, have at it. If you're looking for performance and a better ride, avoid spacer lifts.

I just got rid of those spacers. The new coils or billys are a much better way to go. Some in CA just listed new OME coils in t B/S/T forum.

Those and get some Add a Leaves

All spacers are designed like that. You're pushing the suspension down, thus increasing load on the coils and limiting the amount of down-travel you have. Instead of the suspension dropping into potholes, your suspension will top out and that corner of your truck will drop. There's only so much travel in the stock components before things start binding.

It still makes it rough. I have a lift just like that one and it rides very very harsh. Also it puts alot of stress on the bottom of the shock and if you try to off road too hard the shock will snap in half at the bottom. If you are going for looks and only on the highway and road then you'll be fine. but if you want to off road you have to be careful.

Then you do more then highway and street running.


You asked and we've given you our opinions and justifications. At this point the decision is up to you.

Well if you go mudding be careful because thats how 06Bluez snaped his shock in half with the same type of lift. He was going through a puddle/mud and hit a bump on the way out and it snaped in half. and the driverside tire eat the wheel well and he had to call a tow truck and had to get it towed to the dealership.
