    Set your Bilsteins to 0". Pretty dangerous having them set to 2.5" with those coils.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    It doesn't work because the suspension isn't god. It only moves so much either direction. You'll destroy your CV's and your truck will ride like complete shit. These trucks aren't made to go over 3" of lift.
