    I'm currently running the revtek lift. I need new shocks and was thinking it's a good oppurtunity to change me package. Being that I don't have enough money to change the coils and everything. I wanna know, what if I got the billy's and set them at 2.5.( Stock coils)
    Would I lose any lift compared to what I got right now?

    I know the revtek says 3" but is it actually? Or would the lift be the same. And later I cAn put the new coils in!

    Anyone with some knowledge of both please help me out.

    I'm thinking you lose the 0.5" of lift. I don't see why the revtek wouldn't be a full 3" if that it what it is advertised as.

    Is the revtek a coil spacer or top plate spacer?

    Once you get new coils remember you have to set the billy's back down so you don't go over 3" of lift total.
