Thanks man!

I got a good deal on the lift kit with my sponsorship through Bully's Performance. But the MSRP on the kit set up the way I have it is about $2900. If you're interested in getting it I can get you all the details and part numbers for the steering stabilizer setup and you can contact Eric at Bully's for pricing with the forum discount.

I ended up getting a good deal on the 2" BORA wheel spacers as well but the MSRP on them is $480.

The best deal I could find on the tires was at OK Tire in Abbotsford. Taxes in I think I paid around $2100 for them.

So with by the time you get the lift and spacers into Canada you're look at around $5900 for this setup. But like I said that's a rough ball park based on MSRP values. You can probably get a bit of money off that lift by contacting Bully's.

Did the install myself. Definitely wasn't an easy task though and I wouldn't recommend it if you aren't a pretty decent mechanic. Welders, cut off wheels, and die grinders were involved.... You can read the full install write up on post 557-559 of my build thread linked in my signature.

Overall I probably had about 20-22 hours into the install. Now a shop should be able to do it quicker than that but I'd guess you're looking at +/- $1400 to get it done depending on what the shop rate is.

Yeah the most difficult things I've ever done is swap tranny's, brake jobs, change clutches you know the normal stuff but never any welding ... guess I'll have to budget for shop fees .... thanks for the info

Here is mine...

2010 Ram 1500 SLT 4x4
6" BDS w/ 3" PA body lift
37x13.5 Toyo's w/ 22x12 Fuel Mavericks

I purchased Bilstein's but am currently deployed so they will have to wait until I return.

If my info is right, i'll have to take out the 5/8" preload spacer in order to install the Bilstein's, is that correct? Also w/ them installed and the spacer taken out, am I looking at about 1-1.5" of lift? Thanks for the help!

Nice wheel and tire setup! Definitely love the look if 22x12's with 37's.

Correct, you will not install the 5/8" preload spacer on the Bilsteins when you assemble them. You'll want to set the Bilsteins at 2.1" if you want your truck to be level. 1.4" if you want a slight amount of rake.

Thanks! and thanks for the info! If I install them at 2.8, is that going to mess with anything? Will the cv angles be too steep? I'd like the front to sit just a little higher, but if it messes w/ the angle to much, level will do!

Its kind of one more notch up from what Brandon said.
2.1 for rake and 2.8 for level.
If your rake is over 3.25, you still won't be leveled at 2.8

But BDS has amazing drop brackets that even at 2.8, its better than guys with RCX at 1.4
Go figure.....
