    The last thing he wants to do is put short shocks on a truck in the rear.

    Would this put you 1.5" and 2" over original ride height though? How much lower are you than original now?

    I've never measured, but from looking at older pics, I'd guess I'm 1.5"-2" down on all 4. If I could find an OEM 4 leaf pack take off, that would be ideal. Been thinking about what you stated about a new lift based of original ride height. I guess I really want it back to pre sag levels and not 4" higher than existing.

    Even if it's $200. $700 for an entire OEM suspension is a bargain.

    That would be worth it, I guess in my head I always think in Alaska shipping prices.

    Yep, really dictates who I get to purchase from.

    Yea I know.
    It’s a lot of sacrifice to be there.
    I don’t know how all of you do it..

    Thanks!

    I'm hoping/thinking that the 3rd gen suspension (from an OR) will give me what I want. Rear will raise up some simply due to new leaf pack and front will raise a tad due to the different coil/shock assembly. Ideally, the rear will end up an inch or so higher than front. All without installing a "lift".

    Any flaws in my limited thinking on this?
