    OK...so I got the rear springs TSB done...and it lifted the rear 1-1/2".

    I'm happy with the ride and the look...I had it done mostly for hauling and towing.

    Now I'd like to lift the front about one inch to level out the truck a little.

    I also plan on replacing the 245 tires with 265 tires. Speaking of tires...do I get the front end lift work done 1st, w/ alignment?...or get the tires installed then do the front end work and an alignment?

    What is the best way to achieve the small front end lift? Bilstein 5100's? Or new coils? Other? I want to do it economically, but I don't want to screw with the ride or factory engineering too much.

    Not a fan of shims...although I'd like those with the 1/4" "Taco Lean" shim to comment, this is something I'd be interested in doing when I make the subtle front end mods.

    Lots of questions...thanks for any imput you can add...

    Get yourself a set of eibach coils. While they're advertised as 1.6 inches of lift, it settles out to a little bit less than that. The ride ends up being less car-like than factory but not harsh at all. I didn't know they sold 4x4 with 245 tires. Depending on width of tire you should be able to fit 32 in. tires
