a six inch lift is gonna be blocks in the rear ,leafs in the front add more block and a set of shackles in the front , but really a 8 inch lift is what ya need

the spacer doesnt work on your truck since you have leaf springs up front... you basically need everything in the 8" kit to make it work...

from what i remember (but dont quote me) the only diff is they use a hanger kit plus 6" springs up front for the 8" kit.. what i would do is call them up and have them give you the part numbers of everything you need...

that being said it will prob just be cheaper to buy a 8" kit

yea i think your right, the 2wd trucks have a coil lift up front, i was talkin to this one guy who had a procomp lift and his truck was 2wd tho and he did a leveling kit with it, so thats probably how they did it with the spacer.. yea im gonna have to make some calls and see what i gotta do.. hmm maybe just need to save for that 8in kit
