Thanks! That was my issue with just the front spacers... it looks great but if you use your truck as a truck you will run into issues when you over load the bed of your rig, the rear coil spacers should definitely help. I'm also thinking about getting an airlift 1000... just in case.

But I'll warn you, It's addictive once you start you cant stop!!! This forum is definitely expensive!

Oh I know about expensive. This is my 4th truck and none were left stock.
So you like the Rough Country kit? If I were to do the kit you have but keep stock 20's I would need wheels spacers correct?

I'd definitely recommend the Airlift 1000's too. The coil spacer will give you a little more height so you can sag a little further without having the cali lean. But the Airlift 1000's definitely help keep the whole truck a lot more stable and make it right a lot nicer when hauling.

Tell me about it! There's so many new things I learn everyday that I want to do to my truck. I'm pretty sure this addiction is costing me more than someone addicted to hard drugs But hey, at least it's fun.

I am loving the kit so far. No issues, handles great, rides very similar (slightly harsher but I describe it as more "truck like") no vibrations and it looks great.

If you keep the stock wheels and jump up to 35x12.5 tires you will need a spacer. I'm not sure on the size but I'm sure someone will jump in with the right answer.

The only thing I would be wary about is the stress that spacers will put on your studs should you do some heavy lifting.

Hey Brandon,

Thanks for the info on the airlifts, I might be moving across the country in the upcoming months and will be hauling a loaded trailer around 4200KMS. If we move, it will be the first thing I buy.
