So I know I posted a few months ago and you guys responded with the answers to my questions. I have a couple more, but bear with me if they were answered previously in this as I'm still deployed and can only log in from time to time. I know the Bilsteins will raise the front depending on the settings. Those are planned anyway because the factory shocks and struts are going to be replaced. Ram725 and Fast said to use a coil spacer in the rear to level the truck with the added lift in the front. I have an '06 and it's leaf springs in the rear. Would I have to add a leaf to achieve the lift now?


Also, RCX's website recommends a 37'' tire on a 20'' wheel. I am not sure I want to go with a 20'' wheel. I am more of a fan of 17'' to 18''. What kind of problems am I looking at with the smaller diameter wheel?

Thanks again in advance! You guys never let me down!

What size lift are you going with? I'm going to guess 6"? If you go with a 6" i'd recommend going with a 18" wheel because if you go with a 17" i believe you are going to need a spacer but i could be wrong someone will correct me.

I only recommended the rear coil spacer if you want to fully utilize the height adjustment of the Bilsteins.
Otherwise, it really isnt needed

You can go 17" or 18"
I believe the 17" is the smallest you can go with
But you want a 0 offset wheel for no rubbing

Thanks guys! Like I said, this place never fails me. I still have a few months before I'm home in the states to play around with wheel/tire ideas but the 6'' RCX and Bilsteins are a definite.

Posting because I have never seen anyone with stock struts and a 1.75" spacer on top of the rear coil springs. A screw up by the shop who installed but I like the stance! Will love it if it sags an inch in the rear!

My fender wells in the front are shorter than his. But the top of my cab and my rear are taller. He isn't happy about that. If I had the bis at 2.4 I'd be taller in every direction.

I'll probably remove the spacer this time home and then possibly do the spacer and bilsteins at 2.4. Time will tell I'm really scare of making it too big because it's my DD but sorta taking it as a sign from up above that I should be higher since the rear block was left on haha

Email sent to you with price. Let me know your thoughts

Also, its either 2.1 or 2.75 settings thats within that range you want.
I would suggest 2.1 though as it is your DD
