    i doubt it. i put a 3" in the front and a 3.5 in the back and the rear is still low.

    they are, but i put on a aal. and a 1.5" shackle.. if your rear is higher then i would just put the front on first and set it down then step back and take a look at it.

    I have almost 3" in front and 2" in the rear and I think it sits pretty level.

    As far as 33's go, it just depends how much rubbing you're willing to put up with and the amount of trimming you want to do. There's many different factors in it, like upper control arms, sway bar in place, having fender flares or mud flaps, etc. And all that on top of the type of tires and wheels you get.
