    I currently have the 3" spacer kit from toytec with the aal, tsb, and LR ucas. My question is how much lift can you go with stock shocks? Truck has a little rake to it and was thinking of getting the Eibach coils or 884s from toytec but didnt know if i would have to change shocks out also..or anything else in that case. One more thing.. how much can you lift the rear with stock shocks? I have a 1" block sitting around in the garage and thought about putting it on as well... ooooooorrrrr I'd sell it if anyone is interested :D 1" block from ToyTec with new U-bolts.



    Thanks, Blake

    I think your problem will be downtravel from the shock. With the spacer on, your shocks can only go down like 1" right now, add anymore and your shocks will be maxed out and a make for a VERY crappy harsh ride.

    Could you run stock shocks on 884's alone with no spacer and be fine?

    No matter what! Even if you can get longer shocks, or get creative and stack lifts??
    Don't go any higher than 3" on a stock suspension!! (Stock LCA's, and spindles)
    You'll only be asking for a lot of trouble, and expense!
    If you want more lift buy a Fabtech, Procomp, or an LT set up!
    Don't do the "Getto Fabulous" route! You'll be sorry in the long run!
