    Probably not going to happen by pieces/parts bro....The parts that come with a 6 inch lift pretty much all get used for the install.


    It'll suck- but start saving and wait for the right time...Get new, matching parts and get it installed the right way the first time. Best of luck!!

    That usually doesn't happen. You can find used coilover shocks, or spindles (if 2wd) but a full fagtech 6" or Prolame 6" usually comes all together from the manufacturer new

    Good question. My suggestion to you my friend if you want to lift your truck would be Camburg or total chaos uniball upper control arms (600-700 dollars) and a nice coilover set (sway a way, Icon, king, about 900-1200) that provides 3" lift. You get what you pay for when lifting the truck. C/O's make a massive difference in performance when on and off road.
    Another option is Toytec. They offer a 3" lift. Bilstein 5100 shocks w/ eibach springs. add a leaf for the rear plus bilstein 5100 rear shocks.

    If you were to go with a drop bracket kit I suggest the RCD 4" lift. Only good thing about drop bracket kit is it reduces the stress on the CV joints on a 4x4. RCD makes a better quality kit than fabtech and pro comp.

    If you go with a 6" lift you'll end up most likely running 35" tires which put a ton of strain on the brakes, steering, throws alignment off easily and suck's your gas and power like a mother. 3-4" lift makes the most sense with 33's... and the best performance off road and on.
    My 2 cents.
