    Yeah I don't have he extended brake lines, but sway bar and and carrier bearing for the fact that the sway bar will run on the coils and it will reduce the vibrations, if there are any?

    I'd think an Axle Degree Shim and longer lines would be good.

    You can either relocate it or remove it.

    Yeah I still don't see why anyone that uses their vehicle as a DD would want that extra worry and remove it

    like all things in life its a balance act. if removing it would make you crash and burn instantly then yeah i wouldn't. but thats not likely. But if your worried about it you can always just relocate it. For all the other things on list get the lift installed, cycle teh suspension and see if anything else is needed.

    All depends on the truck tbh. My friends vibrates like all hell. Mine wasn't bad but i did it just to be safe so if it did vibrate i wouldn't have to jack the truck up again drop the diff etc

    Access cab toolbox/ dog bed with seats and headrests deleted, waterproof TRD seat covers, yellow wire mod, diff breather relocated to tail light, engine block heater, Leer topper with Yakima tracks and rack, Yakima rack on cab, Ride Rite with Daystar cradles, CBI hidden front hitch, wired for winch front and rear Warn quick connect, Warn x8000i on external carrier, sway bar delete, trailer plug relocated to bumper, Pelfreybilt IFS and Mid skids, ECGS front diff bushing, ARB CKMA12 compressor, 255/85/16 Toyo M55 load E tires on stock steel rims, Up2NoGood heated mirror kit, Husky X-act Contour front floor liners, Northstar AGM 27F battery, Pelfreybilt bolt on sliders with kickout and top plates, TRD Pro headlights, Depo smoked tail lights, Energy suspension body mount bushing kit, Cobra 75WXST cb with rear mounted Wilson 3' antenna on Shmellmopwho mount, OME Dakar leaf packs with AAL, Billstein B110 rear shocks, 5100s with 885 coils and 1/4" spacers, SPC LR UCAs, 2wd low range mod
    + means higher spring rate than spec. Put it on the driver side. 0 means at spec.

    With 886 coils you'll gain nothing by retaining the sway bar, but it's your choice.

    You may or may not need the shims and / or CB drop. If you don't need one or both, installing them will cause vibes. Try without first. If you get rear vibes then measure you're driveline angles and decide which fix you need. I needed the CB drop.
