    Hey guys, thanks in advance for the help. I have a Procomp 6" lift up front with Bilstein C-513's which I am ok with for now. As for the back end, it is still on leaf springs and just spacers I guess. I want to switch to a coil over set up. I was thinking OME's and Bilstein 5100's. Seems common enough. I do however, want to drop the back end a bit and prerunner it out a little more. So like a 4" lift in the rear and 6" in the front make sense? I am trying to figure all this out and appreciate the help.

    Thanks Jared



    (I will always have 35" tires, and I try and keep em wide)

    get 885 coils with some ome shocks and run that in front, you will get like 8 inches in the front and keep the rear how it is

    you have a 2" block with add-a-leaf springs, get a custom 6" pack from alcan for about 600 bucks shipped, that will solve your rear.

    Sorry, but in thinking about it, in what what will that benefit the trucks performance? Is it that it will have 2" more of travel in the rear because of the block being 'gone'?

    blocks are well...shitty. you will have greater articulation with alcans(or any custom leaf pack) and a much smoother ride.

    True that, true that. I appreciate your help in this thread and just have one other question, and that is the recommendations for dropping the back end a little?

    yeah but that'll be a big difference in height, esp if your lifting the front even higher. wait you want to remove your a-arms? they hold your spindle and you have to have them, thats a must.

    just so you know the procomp lift is a 6"/3.5" lift...so if you remove your block your going to have 6" up front and only 1.5" of lift in the rear.

    I want to leave the front end alone for now and drop the back end a little. Not sure what each inch dropped looks like so ya. Maybe a 1" or 1.5" lower lift in the rear?
