    you should have put this in suspension. that lift will make your truck ride like shit, trust me ive had a spacer lift. if you just want to lift your truck 2.5 inches buy some bilstein 5100s and set them to 2.5 inches. they ride a lot better and i think they are around the same price

    That is what i am going to do, but everyone says you can't do 2.5 because you will have alignment issues.

    so you can't go 2.5 that is what i thought. what if you have the Toytec coilovers? Can you go above the 2.5 as long as you do the diff drop?

    billies can only extend to 2.5. toytec can go to 3.5 but you will need to get new ucas if you go 2.5 and up and you still gotta think about your cvs. they will be at a hell of an angle at 3.5
