    I had my coil spacer lift put on before I realized that they suck. Any suggestions on an upgrade. I have 2.5 lift rear full leaf pack from skyjacker so I think I'm good there. Not sure what route to go. I would really like to fit 33's. have 265/75/R16's warden a/t'sfrom Treadwright. They measure 32". I have heard good things about bilstine but don't like that they don't come pre assembled. Like icons ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS appreciated.

    Enitial reason for lift was that my rear leaf spring broke. Toyota dealer wanted 1000 to replace and suggested I do both sides for sag and what not. Called a 4x4 shop and said they could do 3"lift with full leaf springs new for 1139. I was sold. The coil spacer is made by rough country. Idea adjustable coil over/ combined with the spacer to get say 3.5 or 4 inches. If I understand correctly I would need uca's and a diff drop???

    I was running a spacer lift on my truck also. Then after some lurking and getting ideas on TW, I am now running a Camburg LT kit with Icons up front and Deaver J66 rear pack with Icon 2.5 with reservoirs in the rear.

    They do here and here if you're willing to pay extra for it. I have the coil-overs depicted in the second link. In hind sight, I'd order them unassembled (here), assemble them myself using a spring compressor available to me at the auto hobby shop where I work, and save $200.
