    I have king 2.5 coils and right now they are at stock height. They are amazing in the desert and will soak up almost anything i want em' too, however driving on the freeway can get a little wobbly. I also want a little more clearance so because i have a 4x4 and i still want my coils to preform in the desert im thinking to lift em' about 1.5", as far as CV boots go is 1.5" ok?. The shocks are new so i don't know much about them. can someone help me out.

    i know 1.5 inches are fine on your cb boots, when you go to 2.5-3 inches is when you need a diff drop. im sure someone can chime in on your other questions

    I've seen people go like 2-2.5" and not have a problem so i think you are definitely in the clear with 1.5". will look good too,rear stock?

    I have stock leafs, so the rear shock is staying put for now. I could mess with the PSI and lift em' a bit, but maybe in the future ^^^^
