Don't quote me on this because I don't know all the details of any of Fabtechs kits, but I would think you could just throw a 2" leveling spacer at the front end, and maybe a block or a helper spring at the rear. I need to do a little research on Fabtech myself.

yes its possible. my 07 had fabtech 6 inch & their 6 &8 inch kit both use the same track bar drop bracket,so i used a readylift leveling kit in front{dont need to replace shocks} in the back i used a taller block & a procomp addaleaf. i also dropped the steady bearing a total of 1 1/2 with a solid aluminum block. truck is level & rides decent..no vibration. im running 37/1350/18 nitto mud grapplers.
