    :confused: I have a 2.5" lift on my truck right now. I'm curious if there is a 4" lift that does not require the drop down bracket. I'm not worried about the rear leafs, thats an easy fix. Just need some more room for my tires. Anything will help. Thanks.

    A body lift will give you some more tire clearance. I had the same problem here with 33's with a 3 inch lift. just not enough :p

    Does anyone know if I could go with a 1.5" spacer on top of my coilovers? If used with diff drop kit?

    Have you installed the diff drop? I have the adjustable coilovers as well, but I was told by a lot of people here that 3.5" is really too high. Puts too much stress on the CV joints.

    You'll be changing CVs like you change underwear if you go over 3" without a diff drop.

    (that is for those that do change underwear)

    I have 3" (spacer) lift up front, with 1" diff drop and high angle CV's. I run 285/75/16 with no interference issues, just a little frame rub when lock to lock, but that's becasue I have 4.48" backspacing.
    Anyway, I think the problem you'll run into with a higher lift (without dropping or changing the control arms), is alignment. You can only change your control arm angle by so much before your alignment cams run out of adjustment.

    I called Camburg about my coilovers. I guess I can adjust them out to 2 7/8". I'm only at 1 1/2" maybe. Now I'm having a hard time finding shackles to fit on th eDeaver leafs I have in the rear. Any suggestions? Most peoples shackles only fit specific springs.
