It is probably the CST 4'' coil spacer that you have currently correct? So a kit with 3'' rear springs isn't going to get it any higher. I would not put the 4'' spacer with the 3'' spring. The track bar relocation brackets wouldn't center the rear axle correctly. And going up any more, you might have to find some longer rear shocks than you currently have. Not sure on that though.

Andrew, don't some of the kits come with a 5'' rear coil lift option? I thought I had seen some of the 4wd guys running the 5'' rear spring with a small coil spacer.

Yes sir! RCX, BDS and Zone all have 5" rear coil
But if Molina is running longer coils in the rear, he can simply add coil spacer

Im not exactly sure whats on the rear. I have the 7" cst lift.i think it is the 4" kit thou.so maybe I could try the 5" coils and go from there I suppose and then just find a different sized spacer if need be.

I like the way your truck is set up. Almost exactly how I want mine to sit.
So you have the CST 7"? The pics on your photobucket said 4". Just want to ensure I get the right one as I am about to order the 7". Looks like you kept the stock wheels on for a bit also. The shop I talked to said I had to do Wheels and Lift same time as I couldn't run my stock wheels with the CST 7"?

And those headlights are the SSpyders correct?

Awesome looking truck.

Yea it is the 7" CST kit. the 4" part is included in the kit its what is used on the rear end. I was able to run the stock 20's and tires on just fine after the lift that was just while i waited on my wheels and tires to arrive. Headlights are the Spyder brand ones but i had the projectors removed and Jeremy from retro shop installed some morimoto h1 projectors into them and sealed them back up.so they look just like regular ones but light output is AMAZING!! Specially with the DIGITAL brand 55 watt hid kit.

You can run the stock tires and wheels on it after the lift. I have been for awhile now. But thanks to Bully's, I will be rolling on some new 35's in a couple weeks

That is what I thought and I was skeptical when the shop told me that. Maybe they were hoping I would just buy the lift and wheels tires etc through them.

Want to do the lift first and then get the wheeels and tires done a little later.

A friend who owns a shop just got me an AWESOME deal on the T1000. Slowly I am getting all the pieces together. Kinda wish I would have just done the lift and wheels instead of my stereo.

I have the trinity t1000, and Yukon 4.56 gears also i like it. Doesn't help with mileage alot but performance is AMAZING.

My truck came with the 3.92's so I should be good with gearing.

I guess from reading the thing to do is to install the trinity do some data logging and then send off the file to Hemifever for custom tuning?

Yea, I have seen plenty of guys running 35's on 3.92 gears and it is fine. Heck, I have 3.55 and about to run some 35 at's, if I need to I will regear. But I don't plan on it since I have the Diablo.

You need to get in touch with Sean first about the tuning. He will then send you instructions to what he needs.
