    on my truck now is just a cheap ebay set of 2" spacers to level my truck but am thinking about going 5100's all around and getting the slim top spacer for the 5100's to get a full 3" then going add a leaf in the rear. is this everything i need? and what's your opinions on this configuration?

    imo I would not do the top plate spacer, when you get over 2.5" is when you run into alignment issues unless you have new UCA's already. or DO get the top plate spacer and only do the 1.75" setting on the billys, this way you would keep a nice ride and not be too stiff.

    how about going lower on the billy setting and keeping my 2" spacers? and with uca's are they a "must" that's an answer i can't seem to get on here mainly probably because of expense. but i'd rather do it right. and right now is it normal for my tires to seem to come in on the inside a bit in stance like my toe and camber needs adjusted? or is it just my spacers lengthening the travel on my cv? sorry man lot of questions just after filtering through mounds of lift threads i find myself back to where i started lol

    there is no difference on running your current spacers or using the billys for lift, both of them compress the spring to gain lift. the more compressed = more lift = stiffer ride.

    so no I would not use coil spacers with billys. its pointless.
    If I was gonna do a 3" lift I would get new UCA's. Ive had a 3" lift before without them and my truck would wander all over the highway. 2" - 2.5" should be ok without.

    as for camber, my wheels camer in on the bottom jsut a little bit. I think thats normal
