    At 5inches you will have no droop in the front suspension and your UCA will be eating you coil springs

    That procomp is referred to as a drop-bracket lift.

    As mentioned above, don't stack lifts!

    Plenty of capable offroad trucks here with only 3". Several guys are running 35's on 3" of lift.

    You know your ground clearance actually decreases with 6" of lift, because of the nature of the drop-bracket lift.

    Dont make the same mistake I did. Dump the spacers and spend the extra money on good coil-overs in the front with a AAL and upgraded shock in the rear and you will be set.
