im running a shackle leveling kit easy install and rides great about 2.5'' over stock in the front. theres no difference in anything really all it did was extend the shock a little bit so its riding closer to the top of the stroke now but no problems at all.

8 Is the magic number when it comes to trucks.. 8 lugs, 8 foot bed, 8 cylinders

Just be careful there... your extending past what your lift parts are intended for... axle (carrier bearing if your a cc), sway bars, track bar, pitman arm, etc

i'm running a 4" and i actually just ordered the mini spring pack, but most parts are interchangable from 3-6" lifts, bigger than 6" geometry starts changing

I think I will buy a adjustable track bar. I only want to do it because it has a big rake and i want it leveled

It should have an adjustable track bar if i'm not mistaken?? but that makes it easier, just messing with the front anyways
