Could you take a pic of your cv angles and post it. I am curious if a guy could do bilsteins for a little more lift? Thankyou

Main reason I ask is when I spoke to BDS they said the diff and crossmember drops are 4.5" and the additional 1.5" of lift to make it a 6" lift was achieved through strut spacer. If I decide to go up with my truck I will want to add bilsteins set at about 2", therfore if his cv's are straight I would have the room.

When adding the Bilsteins, you will need to remove the pre load spacer (1.5") as you cannot stack a pre load and Bilsteins.

Most members I know running the BDS kit and who has the 5" rear, max the Bilsteins to level out.

Hope this helps

I'll try to get some of the CV's tonight for you. I would think you could add the bilsteins though just like people are with the RCX. It rides great at highway speeds and no shimmy in 4x4. I'm very happy with it's ride and performance.
Also TLSXD, I'm from Montana but AD military so I'm at Fort leonard Wood now. I've been in Western ND a lot, through the Dickenson area and such.

Looks really good, I think fender flares would be a great addition to that truck!
