    u cannot use coilover on 5 lugs unless u go custom mounts for it and do like qa1 coilovers. 5 lug is coil spring. u will need to use spring compressor, can stack ratchet time downs to make sure u are more safe during

    V6 shocks aren’t going to work. Your options are slim and you’re either going to have to go with spacers and AAL or use bilstein in order to lift. Mine is a readylift front spacer and aal

    No. U will need moog 81070 coil springs. That's the part number for V6 coil springs to give u an inch of lift

    Wrong. He can. Moog 81070 will give him an inch in the front from higher spring rate. Spring size is same. U can stack daystar spacer for another .75 inch, and fabtech spindles for another 3 inches

    Id definitely recommend new 4600 shocks if you lift it. I didn't have shocks in my budget this month and the ride is a bit more stiff than usual but I could live with it until I get 4600s. I was just going to get it for the rear but I decided to wait and get all 4

    Can anyone confirm with the spacer lift that the UCA is supposed to be below the spring perch? Seems off to me, maybe it's not supposed to be above the springs. Much appreciated...

    Are you on the ground? At full droop it can look like that.

    Yeah it needs to be rotated because on the ground it sits higher than that right now it's kinda binding.

    No worries it's pretty common and a pain because it took us a while to figure it out.
