lift/shock questions..Need help
Okay I have searched and searched and now I need some help.
So im looking to get my 08 up in the air here soon. Original plan for it was a leveling kit and 35's. Then after looking at the "lifted 6.4's! Lets see em!" thread on here plans went to a 4.5" on some 35's. Only problem is I found/purchased about a month ago a procomp stage 2 radius arm lift with- New RIZE front 6" coils, fox resi's all around, fox dual steering stabilzer, and etc etc. I figured I was wanting a 4.5" kit but what's an inch and a half and that i'd just run the 6" do that and run 37's.
After some of the more recent posts in that thread, more specifinally ones made by bongiardina, and stinkbugs trucks.... im wanting to go a bit bigger.
Ive been looking at adding a 2.5 leveling kit and maybe a 1" TEI spacer up front to the 6" and I will be doing PMF blocks/bars in the rear. However I dont know what lift height the shocks I have will fit. What measurements of the bodies and length would I need to run say a 8.5-9.5" lift? Am I better off trying to sell my lift and buy something complete from Trevor at PMF or can I make this work?
