    sit on the front of your truck, see how much it sags down, then make the call from there.

    I have more weight then that on the front of my truck i have a 2.5 inch lift but the sag should be the same on my stock coils and your stock coils regardless of my lift. How much sag are you willing to take? I think my 210lbs setup on the front of my truck has pulled down the front end about an inch. or maybe an inch and a 1/4. fat bobs garage has several leveling kits i have metal spacers. you could go to billy 5100's but thats more money and work.
