I know that. I just want to level out for now. I've got a set of Fox Springs for the front and rear. Maybe going to dual shocks up front to help smoothen up a bit. I know I need my Track Bar Drop, Pitman Arm Drop, and Carrier Bearing Drop (I'm already at 8 in the rear - that's done). I'll probably need to replace my steering stabilizers (as I'm pretty sure they're worn out).
I know I may need to extend my driveshaft, I may need to extend brake lines, I may need to extend steering linkage... I have a buddy who runs a 4x4 shop helping me do the work, I just need to get the parts. His custom CNC guys wants about $750 - $900 for the shackles custom fabbed.
I just need to start off with the hangers. And take it from there. My other option is start with the 8" leaf springs in the front and replace those shocks. I'd prefer to just do the hanger and shackle up front for now so I can take care of the springs later on.
