2000 1500's use a completely different suspension than the 06+ 1500's. They still have solid axles, not independent front suspension with struts. So 3" coil spacers will work.

No one makes an 8" suspension lift for a 1500.... so you aren't going to find one. Your best bet is to get a 6" lift and crank the torsion bars up to make it an 8" lift. No issues with doing that. ...
