    I have never heard of this "shock extender". Is there a thread that talks about it? Does it just mount below the shock? And yeah i was thinking about doing the PA 3" body lift for a little while. Ive been on the fence with it. No luck on the hub issue. I think it might be because I am running lug centric wheels (just ordered some hub spacers) so whenever I hit a hard dip in the road all the force is transferred to my studs and causing them to have some play in them after time.The noise has been getting worse just recently. (Hopefully its not the ball joints). I doubt it is from the 35s though. Plenty of people run 35s with no problem. And my wheels are only have 20x10 with a -12 offset. Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

    I understand man, do what you need to do. Let me share my .02 cents with you. Hopefully I can shed some light on a fellow ram member and help him prevent the mistake I made. Again just my opinion. 1. Depending on how you want to your truck to look, in my opinion, the 4" rear spacer with the 4" spindle and the 2-2.5 spacer up front MIGHT still give you a rake. again. EVERY TRUCK IS DIFFERENT. BUT, for my truck I have the 4" spindle with the 3" replacement springs, and a 2.5 topguncustomz rear coil spacer and I still have a .5" rake. Just to let you know. 2. You are definitely making the right choice on going with the 2" coil spacer. I try not to tell myself this, but i do wish I would have gone with a 2" coil spacer as oppose to 3" springs. The 3" springs are really bouncy. but Im not going to complain its a truck.

    3. Im sure you already know this, but you do need stock length shocks up front. I had the stock shocks on originally, wasn't happy with the ride. SO I ordered the CST-1200 shocks. Performance lifts says its the best shocks for the 6-7 inch lift kit. Let me tell you. THEY ARE LONGER THAN STOCK SHOCKS. Its allowing my upper control arm to hit the coil bucket when I hit a dip in the road. You do not want this. So I would steer away from the CST-1200 shocks regardless of what they tell you (they are more expensive too). I just ordered stock length Rancho RS5368 front shocks. For some reason I could not find those shocks on performance lifts but I ordered them on for Just under $100. I will tell you how I like those shocks if you want. What I'm hoping for, is it will stop the clunking and banging of my UCA against the coil bucket. Thats all. Just giving you my opinion on it. If you have any questions just ask me man.

    I believe you do for sure need longer rear shocks (I have the Procomp ES900 there great). Im not sure about the drop bracket for the pan hard bar though. I still have it on though. Im wondering if you could just order a pan hard drop bracket somewhere else. Because the rear end on our 2wd's is the same a 4x4 rear end. So I'm wondering if you could just order longer rear shocks, drop the 4" spacer in there, and order a pan hard drop bracket. Did you email CST or If you ask performance lifts they might be able to just get the pan hard bracket and while you're at it order some longer rear shocks. What are you doing on the front end? From what I remember you have JUST the 4" spindle correct?

    Hey rambo, yeah I do stil have the 4" rear coil spacer. However, I am using the pan hard drop bracket for my 2.5 coil spacer. Im not sure if you would be able to just order the pan hard drop bracket by its self or not? I would be willing to sell you just the coil spacer. Get back to me and let me know. Thanks
