    Ok heres the deal, i would like a coil that will work with my my db lift that will give me about 8" of travel. Can i just buy a king coilover and springs and just bolt it in as long as the extended and compressed lengths are correct?

    Just went out and did some measuring, and it looks lie i would need a 12" travel coil. That would give me 19.5" compressed and 31.5" extended and the truck would sit level in between there. That will also allow for it to be very adjustable.

    Not to highjack but if I bought the fabtech 6 lift, do you know which coilovers you could use? I would want a better option than the dirt logics..
