    33inch tires, 2" wheel adaptors,leveling kit
    I currently have 3 inch body lift and im going to add 2 inch block in rear and 3 inch spacer in front but the kit does not come with two rear shocks. Do i haft to replace the stock rear shocks for this suspention kit to work? Also, how much do yall think it would run me to take it to a mechanic to be installed and would it need to be alined? it would be a big help. thanks

    You'll prob need shocks because they will max out with that much lift, as far as asking us how much they'd charge, get out the old google and call around and ask :)

    You'll need extended shocks, but spacer on top of body lift ? Why even bother with shocks, but whatever, but def. longer shocks needed..
