You need the carrier bearing drop kit or a index ring, front DS will also need to be made longer or get the index ring. New U bolts should be used. Bump stop spacers.

We have everything needed..if we can help please PM.

Hey man My old truck I bought 10 inch springs for the front and 8 inch for the rear... You definitely need a dual steering stabilizer, make sure that drop pitman arm works for an 8 inch lift because they make them different sizes, I like using the track bar drop bracket so if you want to add drop hanger kit for an 11.5 inch lift later you can just adjust the track bar a little then having it at a bad angle, longer brake lines, new u bolts, good shocks, carrier bearing spacer i think it goes every 4 inches you lift the truck you need to drop the carrier 1 inch if im not mistaken, I think thats pretty much everything if i forgot something just let me know...

Ehhhhh, Im gonna have to disagree on that one.... No indexing ring nor drive shaft mods are needed for a truck with only a 8" lift. If we were talking 10", it would be recommended but again prob not necessary unless they run in 4x4 alot. At 12" its reguired. Not trying to start anything, I just tend to disagree on this one........

At an 8" you'll most likely want to get the front driveshaft extended, especially if you have springs that push the center pin forward (like the Icons).

An indexing ring would only lower the front output....do nothing for the rear, short of pushing the t-case rearward a little.

With an extended cab short bed, I'm fairly certain you have a one piece driveline in the rear.......so no carrier bearing is there, no need to drop it. You may need to extend it.


Depending on the lift you have now, you also may need a different drop trac bar, pitman arm, etc..
