what size tires are you going to run. 37s will be fine with the 6 inch springs but for 38s you going to want to add the rest.

you will also need to do some driveshaft mods with the 8.5

I'll tell you from experience the less # and the least amount of inches you can get by with in the rear that better the ride will be!

but that mainly applys to the spring brand aswell some ride way better than others. you get what you pay for.

shocks make a huge diffrence as well.

if it is a crew cab or long box ,traction bars may be needed and the 2 peice driveshaft will need to be shimmed but a 1 peice is better.
