Could someone help me with my math? my truck is pretty much level now with bilsteins set on max and 1 inch rear spacer in the rear. ill be adding the rcx 6" lift next week and trying to figure out what setting on the bilsteins will level it out. I was thinking the first setting at .7 with the 1" rear spacer since the lift i believe is 6/4. But from what i read everyone here seems to be setting bils higher than that.... opinions?

From what I have heard a 6" Rcx needs bilsteins at 1.8 (or whatever the 1.something setting it) to level it out. at 2.1" (what mine is) it needs a .75" spacer in the rear to level it out. Mine is at 2.1" and no rear spacer and looks level to the eye. But I haven't measured to see.

Had this exact setup!
Set your Bilsteins at 2.1 and you will be level.
You will have a 1/4" rake, but to the eye, it is damn level

It was too leveled for my liking....LOL
But thats the setting
