    I have the 4" maxtrac spindles up front and blocks in the back with the extended brake lines. What's the easier route to 6"? Bigger blocks in the rear and a 2" spacer up front on top of the coils? Any opinions would be appreciated thanks

    You seen YotaMatt's setup? He's got a pretty good looking truck and he just did bigger blocks in the back and I think he did eibach springs with bilstein's in the front...

    Yeah I called Jacob at suspension specialist and he recommended to do a 4" block in the rear with extended shocks back there and just a 2.5" spacer up front......what would be better billies at 2.5 or a 2.5" spacer?

    So you are going to put on the absolute shitiest lift possible? Massive blocks and a massive spacer lift? Jesus for the love of god don't use a 4" block. That is freaking huge. At the least get a 2" aal and a 2" block so you don't have your leafs sitting on a sky scraper.

    I'm just saying that's what maxtrac sells as their 6" kit. 4" rear blocks with extended shocks - 4" spindles and 2.5" spacer up front with extended brake lines......

    Billys in front and new 3 or 4" leaf pack in back or icon progressive leaf pack and small 1.5 block block. I wouldn't crank the billys up front more than 1.75 as it will stiffen up your ride.

    To be honest I would just do the billys in front and set at .85 if thats what you wanna do. If you do a single leaf make sure to get the long one and not the short one. If wanting to do an add a leaf I seriously would get the icon progressive leaf pack or wheelers version. A lil more than a add a leaf but better in the long run. Plus you can still run your overload leaf for an additional lift in rear. If you wanna do a 1 " lift block in rear let me know as I have a brand new one w the u bolts I never used I could sell ya.
