    Bilstein 5100's all the way around, 2" shackles in rear, front diff drop, 32x11.50.15 BFG A/T, 15x8 Ultra 164 Wheels
    I found on craigslist a brand new set of Fabtech 3" lift springs for $100, part # ft-2300, and I'm wondering if anybody knows if these will install with the stock suspension, or would I need to buy new shocks?

    Buy shocks. Stock shocks are not intended for that much preload or height.
