    If I put 3 inch spacers in the front of my truck, do you think that would be too much lift or will the truck sit level ? I measured the difference between the tire and the fender antheirs a 3 inch difference from the front of the truck VS the back of the truck.

    Just do 5100's. It is actually cheaper than a real quality spacer. Better ride, overall a better choice.

    It's got LSD man.....
    If the spacer itself is 3" it will give more than 3" of lift. Search 5100s

    Yes they are adjustable. Get them at Downsouthmotorsports.com. Do you have the rear spring TSB? If you do set them at 1.75 and you should be about level. You don't need new coils, upper control arms. Nothing

    Do some reading on leveling your ride here before throwing those free spacers in your truck. There are better options as previously mentioned.

    To much lift, really put a hurting on your c.v. joints. Plus you would probably never get it aligned. Ball joint issues.
