    just wondering if anyone knew how much of a lift this was? I bought the truck with this lift on it and am wondering If I am going to gain any or lose any height when I add my 885x coils, billies set at 0 and a 1/4 top spacer. Im runnin 285/70/17 tires and the measurements are almost 24 inch from center hub to fender if that helps any.

    Looks like a 3" hockey puck lift. You don't plan on using that with the 885's , do you?

    Yeah, its a 3" lift. When you get the 885's they will give you around 3" themselves. Don't put the puck on too. You may want to get some new UCA's with a new suspension lift to help accommodate the tires though.

    Just makin sure. You be suprised at what some of the people on here do with their truck...

    Anyway, your new setup should give you around 3". I have pretty much the same setup and it gives me a hair over 3".

    if your H/F measurements up front are 24" then you're getting around 3" of lift now, so with the 885's you should be about the same (IIRC)

    so somebody help me out you can gain lift on a truck just by adding new coils and new upper control arms? dont you have to drop the lower ones too? I have a 6 inch lift and those are the only types of lifts I know about. well besides the spacer ones pictured above, if you just push up with new coils and and dont drop the lower control arms do you gain any ground clearence?
