Howdy and welcome to the site!
CPS = Cam Position Sensor. If your lucky it will give you a warning it is going south on you. In my case my truck "stuttered" acted like it would shut down then pick up power again. For a lot of people the engine just shuts down and thats it, until it is replaced. You will read where a lot of people carry a spare one in the truck. You can find them relatively inexpensive on Ebay.
I don't really have much experience with lifts so I can't help you out too much there. But someone else will sooner or later.
Thanks for serving,
Craig

if and when i move back to pa the headlights are supposed to be no more than 32 inches from the middle or something like that... 8 inches of body lift is too much... i like the looks but you know. i plan on going with new wheels and tires probably 35's but ill be in idaho for atleast 3 years so stacks and rhino liner is going to be before that probably a chip too

ah k... that law applies here in cali too... but most of us just pay the fine when we get it which is not that often just when a cop is in a bad mood lol... the fine is i think around 300-500 bucks cant remember... its a fix it ticket but it would cost more to drop the truck than to just pay the fine.....get some pics of that bad boy so we can check it out
