I replaced mine with energy suspension poly bushing set. Took about 6 hours to do the work but was worth it. I could probably do it quicker the next time. Welcome to Energy Suspension!

I was going to suggest energy suspension bushings. those are the brand of cab bushings I got... if you replace em before you put the lift kit on it will only take you a minute or two per spring. wd40 works great to help pop them in.

Energy suspension makes a kit. if you check there website you will find the part number for the kit. They also have a dealer locator on their website.

no. 6 inch isnt drastic enough of an angle to need to lower the transfer case. I had a half ton single cab short box with 8 inches of lift that I never had problems with and I never dropped the transfer case. I did have to have the drive line lengthened.
