    I don't know about your rear but what about some 4" camburg spindles and some king coilovers for the front. The king shocks, without cranking them at all, give you 1.7" of lift. That'd be a sick setup for your front and would ride super nice.

    I vote King...but that was not on your list...and again ProComp is the only one that will give you 6 inches of lift.

    Of the list...I would vote Fox.

    The highest you can go in suspension is 5 inches with the spindles since you LCA won't handle it. You'll need to get extended LCA which are long travel parts. OR you can get a drop bracket kit like a procomp 6inch or a fabtech lift. Really depends on what you plan to do with the truck. Mall crawler, desert, hill trails, sand dunes? I'd say just keep saving and do it right.

    Fox would be my vote. But if you do go Camburg, get the Sway Away instead. They are the same thing as the Camburg.

    I love my DR/Icon's too, I say get the spindles first, you'll get a shock war just based on peoples preference. Plus with the spindles you'll get 4 inches and only be sticking your front tires out an inch on each side. If your tight on money just get blocks for the rear, and some shock extenders. This will be a cheap setup until you can save up some more cash.

    I sort of understand what you are saying and that's how I have my setup but how do you know the LCA can't handle it? Are there certain signs to look for, or will it make certain noises? Just asking because I have a friend that has 4'' spindles and has had his Donahoes cranked up around 2.5-3''. He's been driving around with it like that for about 2 years now. It rides very similar to how mine rides so I'm just curious if you could go into further detail.

    i vote for anything other than 6" DB lift which is just a much bigger spacer and pointless if your looking to ditch your current spacer. sure you can get the pro comp stage 2 but that pushing $3000 and you can get a much, much better susp set up for less money. i voted for fox CO's

    downsouthmotorsports.com (they are a vendor here, PM them for prices) can give you a good deal and TW discount on the fox and king CO's

    uhhhh Camburg uses Fox on their LT setups.... Their mid travels are Sway a Ways with custom valving. So do you mean mid travel setups?
