    that does actually!!! I dont really wana "lift" my truck just wana level it. which would be a 1.5 inch front and 1 inch back body lift. trying to keep my expenses low for the moment and will eventually get king shox. Im just worried ill get the 16's and they wont look how i want them. might just have to suck it up and go for it

    1. They don't come in 16x9 according to that site :confused:
    2. 275's is a width, not a full tire size, what size are you looking at?
    3. It can be a body lift if you like the look of your frame hanging out from under your truck :rolleyes:

    Get bilstein 5100's for the front and set them at 1.75. It will be close to level and will be a ton better than a body lift.

    ok i might have to do that. do you have to get coils with the 5100's as well? and i know there arent any 16x9.... i said 16x8 or 18x9. do you guys think 16's will look too small?

    a body lift doesnt allow for bigger tires because the body mount still sits in the same place. and it just so happens to be right in the way of bigger tires.
