    Thanks! I currently have 86,000 on it. If I go with the adjustable trackbar do I still need to change the pitman arm? Would I go with the 3" or 4" shackle kit if I go with x-codes? Im hoping for a full 4" lift.Sorry for so many questions Im just trying to make a decision before your sale runs out! Im going to have to piece it out and order parts here and there due to Christmas coming up.
    Thanks again!

    It sounds like they may be sagging slightly. If the truck has a ton of miles on it or has been used pretty hard, I would consider a new set of springs. I think the X codes would be a decent choice. I would not go with a lift spring unless you go with a high end Deaver or such. 95% of lift springs will be very stiff. Going with a set of X codes and the shackle and hanger kit, the truck will actually ride softer than stock. For a complete 4" kit you will need:
    shackle and hanger kit
    extended swaybar links
    drop trackbar bracket/pitman arm
    shocks
    carrier bearing shims
    rear blocks/ubolts

    Optional items would be:
    adjustable trackbar
    SS braided brake lines (could definitely use stock ones)
    traction blocks
