    I saved up enough to get this kit but the thing is, my truck is bone stock. Like i literally did nothing to it after i got it.
    but im gonna order 4 BFG MT KM2's and 4 Motometal 951's

    but the thing is when i install my lift kit do i have to worry about anything else?

    the wheels are gonna be 285/70/17
    and the wheels are gonna be 17X9

    so rubbing i understand and ill see if i can get a buddy to lightly trim my truck.
    but will i sag in the back or anything? i think the kit comes with a diff drop kit for the front and rear billie shocks

    and it says a toytec rear "long" add a leaf? what the monkey would i need it for, i thought if you had the shocks you wouldnt need the AAL's?
    correct me if im wrong, im still a novice with this stuff.

    The shocks wont raise the truck in the rear. You need blocks, AAL or a whole new leaf pack. The shocks just have longer travel to adjust for the rear being raised buy the AAL or whatever you put in there!

    The AAL is responsible for raising the rear end of the truck.

    UCAs are in the front. I'll break it down a little to try and help out.

    The front is raised by either a longer shock, a stronger rated spring or a combination of the both in the form of a coilover. The UCAs allow you to get the correct alignment angles after the truck has been lifted.

    The rear is raised by an AAL or a block, and a longer shock is needed to fill in the new extra space created by the lift

    Questions ar not a problem, its how you learn!

    The UCA and rubbing are completely different issues. Alignment is the angles your tires meet the road. If it is out of alignment, tires will wear unevenly, the truck will wander on its own alot, etc. Aftermarket UCAs are needed to get you the correct allignment when lifting 3" or more.

    Don't feel stupid about asking questions! You have to learn somehow... You care about your truck and the people here have a lot of knowledge to offer!
