Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think stock height on my Sport is 6' 2" and I am currently on 275 60 r20's that I believe are approx 33"

If I do a 4" lift and 35's, that puts me at exactly 6' 8" ... right?

While I am at it, it sounds like the Bilsteins are the standard install instead of a leveling kit when using a lift. Am I wrong?

I haven't decided on wheels yet, but for tires, I really like the Cepeks FC 2. Solid tire? Damn near $400 each, so I would hope so.
Steve,
If you need to be under 6'8" then a 4" and maybe 34"/35" tires is what will work.
Doing 35" and 4" lift will take you to 6'7" providing the stock height is 6'2"

My truck was 82.5" when I ran 35's for winter.
And I have a 6" lift and Bilsteins at 1.4"
This is taller than 6'8"

If you're going with a 4" lift with 2" rear block the Bilsteins may not be necessary as you'll be almost level with maybe 3/4"-1" rake
But a level kit and lift kit cannot be combined.
Although a lift kit and Bilsteins can

If and when you're ready, hit me up and we will build your truck together.ive assisted on many here on the boards.

Btw: hope you got all your parts
