    hope this is in the right forum section im a noob, i have been researching to find a small lift to clear bigger wider tires but have not found much. the 3 inch is very popular but i did not want that much lift, so what i came up with was a rough country 1.5'' spacer up front with a 1.5'' ad a leaf from wheelers offroad. I belive it gave me enough lift to clear 33s if i have a wheel with a 4'' backspacing. and the ad a leaf i recieved from wheelers was very affordable, i was able to use the factory u bolts and the kit came with new pins ill post up some pics tonight hope this is useful for someone out there

    In order to clear a tire that is roughly a 33, you would need to lift the front of the vehicle about 2.5-3", and the rear approx 1.5". If you are just wanting to level the truck with the rear, then you only need lift the front about 1.25"

    The Bilstein 5100s are a great way to do either lift, and are a much better option than a spacer.

    If ur set on 33's than eibachs may not be enough......if u just want to level, eibachs should be good for the rated 1.6" of lift....paired with 5100s, ur looking at a good ride imho, and ur not preloading anything nor using spacers.

    Im not sure, but eibachs and 5100s set at 0.85 may get u enough to clear 33s.


    Hopefully someone knows......
