Waiting patiently in my garage, Cant clear them with my six inch procomp.. looking into getting another lift. Would looove that rize 12 inch but i don't think i can justify spending that kind of dough... Im told an 8 inch of any sort would give me just enough clearance, but im not a big fan of that stuffed look.... Is it possible to add say some 2" coil spacers to a 8" lift to achieve 10 in the front?? Has this been done? Any Idea's or suggestions of products would be greatyly apreceated!! Oh the truck is an 06 3/4 ton diesel. Thanks fellas!

i was going to do that with my procomp 8in. you can, but you have to make sure the axle is moved forward an the front drive shaft angle is corrected for the 2in spacers. oh ya you might have to get some longer shocks up front as well

You can make a 10" Rize to clear them.


There are lots of 8" lifts that I would not do that to. You run into issues with the caster angle, angle of the radius arms or length of the 4-link bars since many aren't adjustable.

i didnt have any problems, and i bought the skyjacker kit, which was 8.5 i thought but its been so long it might of been an 8 man, don't get me lying to ya. then i ordered the 20 x 12 rockstars, and i didn't know they had a -44 offset. so when i got them they wouldnt fit and we already had the kit on it. so we ordered the 2.5 leveling kit, and putting bigger leaf springs in the back. i did have to order new shocks all the way around. only thing i noticed was that the coils on the front ended up getting tweeked some, but only way i noticed was because when i went to put it on our other truck. we have another 06 that has that kit, but has 38 x 13.50s on it. they do rub though. i ended up only keeping hte truck 26000 miles because i had so many problems with those doors. hope this helps
