Ok, new around here...

looking at an '08 with a 6" lift already done. Problem is, it seems a bit high, so I have a couple of questions. Do I need to worry about stability issues with it being jacked 6"? Would a 4" kit make any difference? I noticed it was a bit bouncy on the front, and I am guessing it is from the extra height?? Thoughts, suggestions? Would I even notice a 2" lift from stock? I do a lot of highway runs.

Would buying good shocks like Bilstein shocks improve the ride? It's not that it rides bad - I just feel a lot feedback through the steering wheel...

perhaps a dual steering stabilizer setup would help some of that steering wheel feedback?
edit, and welcome to the site, that is a sweet looking truck by the way!
