    Ok....not enough info that I could find using my phone. Seriously am sorry if there are threads already posted on this topic! My question is what is the quality of ride with a lift. I have stock 3 leafs in the rear on an 07 sport with 45k miles. Billies up front set to .85 with stock sport springs. General grabber 265/75/17 balanced perfectly and front end is aligned and tight. My truck wanders a little bit when hitting the bumps in the road and may be because I run my tires a little tight at 40psi. My truck feels really light. If I step up to ome shocks and springs up front with say LR uca's and go with a Dakar 3" leaf pack with ome shocks...with the truck feel more solid on the ground? I also do not do any heavy crawling or off roading. And is 3" lift enough to run 285's keeping the mudflaps on? I need a reason to keep my nfab steps on! My truck looks like an x runner with A/T tires on it!!

    I would attribute the "lightness" to the 40 psi. Try lowering the psi down to around 32 and see if it feels "heavier".

    Do you have billies in the rear as well. My truck rode similar to the way you describe with billies in the front only. Once I got the rear installed it really cleaned up the ride.
