    OK I think my 2001 has a front lift kit over the coil springs. Does anyone have any pictures of stock front suspension? I want to remove the lift if that is what I am looking at. Can I just remove the shocks and remove teh block from the front end over teh coil spring? ANyone KNow? I just need a stock truck... not lifted any, unfortunately I drive much more on the highway than i do offroad and when i do drive offroad its usually at teh beach. and when im at teh beach I am usually fishing more than I am riding and when i do ride on teh beach i ride slow. so anyone with any information I would appreciate it.

    Yeah It looks like a Metal spacer. It is between the spring and the spring housing. can I take it out withoug compressing the spring? How does this all fit together?

    Bought a set of Strutt Mounts and finished installing them yesterday. SO I guess I dont need anything now. The freaking mounts were a little over 50 bucks a piece. I will sell the spacers I had in it. drop me a line if anyone is interested.
