Default 6+3+2? How to get the extra 2?

Gent's,

I have a 2010 Ram 1500 4x4. It is currently lifted via a 6" BDS suspension lift, plus a 3'' body lift. I want to go up 2"s in the front to level it out. My current measurements are 47.25" up front and 49.5" in the rear.

Option 1- Coil Spacer
I was told today that combining the 6" BDS w/ a 2" coil spacer would work but it wouldn't be smart due to the spacer BDS already puts in there. Anyone got more info on this?

Option 2-Bilstein's
Does anyone know what setting I would need in order to gain the extra 2"s? Or would these even help?

Option 3- anything you guys can think of?

Thanks for the help!

Front coil spacers aren't an option on a 2010 1500 as it doesn't have front coils. Bilsteins are the only way to go. Set them at 2.1" and there's your extra 2 inches. Keep in mind if you're measurements are dead level you're going to look nose high. If you want to look dead level set them at 1.4"

Touche' I'm not sure why I was thinking coil spacer'sI think I meant strut spacers. But any who, ordered the Bilstein's. Should have them installed hopefully next week if the weather clears up any. Thanks for the help!

What about the Fox/BDS 2.5 coil-over, cranked another few inches?

I would totally do that and that is on the top of my WANT list, but I see no reason spending $1000 when I could easily get the same result w/ pretty much the same ride for just $100.

I guess it's whatever you want out of your build. Plus priorities wax and wane as you draw together a list of what you want to include. $100 for something now isn't that bad. If you were throwing $500+ at it then I'd say think twice. Bilsteins can't hold a candle to Fox ..

I totally agree with you, but for my application i'm not looking for pure off-road awesomeness. I just want something in-expensive that can handle my occasional off-roading.

That thing sounds like a beast man! What tire/wheel combo are you running, or thinking of running?
