    Okay so Im a complete idiot but I just went out and measured my lift and I always thought I had a 2 inch body lift but its actually 3. I also have fabtech fox racing coilovers? Is that what its called? The shock and the spring? Well I can't find out any information on it, what i'm mostly looking for is if it gave lift or not. Definitely seems like it is 3 inch but im not sure. I can get a good deal on leafs that have 3.5 lift over stock. Will my truck be way higher in the back? I have shot leafs right now and it seems like just getting stock leafs will level it out but im not sure.

    Thoughts?

    Some mods. Check build.
    I think you mean Fabtech Dirt Logics? And do you mean there set at 3" plus the 3" body lift? So 6" in front and 3" in the rear? if so then the new leaf packs should be close to sitting level

    No on the shocks/coilovers is says fabtech then below that it says racing shocks. Are those 3in lift? And yes the truck has a 3in body lift. What Im trying to get at is what leaf springs should i get for the back?

    Fabtech Fox Racing Shocks: Are these stock height or 3in lifted? Cant find any info on them because I think they are older

    This is on the side that the tire is on the street. So the leafs are a tad bit worse then this. Lol even though its not even even after a little flex

    This tire is on the sidewalk so the leaf spring is worse in this picture then it normally is. Moral of the story, my leafs suck big ol' cocks
