    so after doing some more research on my truck i found out that the owner before me installed some 5100's and i am stoked about that...my question is can i run the 5100's at the 2.5 mark and also run like a 2 or 3 inch strut spacer ? i dont want to do the complete 6" lift i just want a little more height so i can clear 285's . thanks in advance !

    Ill advised is probably what youre going to get here. And you can clear 285's at the 2.5 setting iirc.

    For 4wd, anything over 3in without a drop bracket is an extremely bad idea.

    You would be good with the 2.5" mark, you could always set them to ZERO and buy some eibach coils up front, do some re-search.

    Haha, I wouldn't really call LT a lift as it's an entirely new suspension and cv's.
