You will need a RS kit, at that point you will end up 9" min lift in the front..time for some $$$ mods to do that. Is that really how high you want to go?

PM me if I can help.

The SD springs will not just bolt up you will need an RSK as mentioned above.

I am running SKY 4.5 RSK with SD v-codes and a 2" AAL which gives me 6.5" of lift, enough to clear 37" tires. In the rear i have the SKY RS kit and 2" lift springs to level it out. Ride MUCH better than the OBS springs.
