I did days of research before I bought my kit, the main thing I saw was not to go full 7 inch lift because the 3" front coil spacer maxes out the suspension. The 4"+1" up front with the 4" in the rear will give you about 1.5" rake depending on your factory rake. I am eventually moving up to the 2" spacer added up front and 4" out back. Remember you have to get longer shocks out back if you get the 4" kit as well. Hope that helps you a little. Great looking truck!
Rambo, Is there anyway you can post some pictures up of your truck with the CST 4" kit you have installed, I would love to see how it looks as im now just thinking about saving up and doing the kit instead of a spacer in the front just to level it.

Thanks

Yea no problem man, still have the stock tires and wheels but I don't think it looks too bad honestly.

Looks great!!!!!! Looks a little nose high or is it just me?? Also if I were to do the same kit with 4" front/ 1.5" rear will I be able to keep the stock wheels and run some Nitto Trail Grappler LT295/60R20 (34.45) or even LT295/65R20 (35.47) without any rubbing issues??

You would definitely rub with either of those tires on the stock wheels. I only have a quarter to half inch from rubbing on the stock tire. The height would be fine but the width, especially with the sidewall design and how much wider those tires are than others the same size, would cause you to rub. Just went out and measured again, 39.75 in the front and 40" in the back. It looks a little nose high, but actually isn't. A 2" rear would probably be ideal, you would just have to piece it all together.

Thats sucks, I really wanted to keep the stock wheels and just add some aggresive looking tires, you dont even think the LT275/65R20 which are (34.33") High and (10.98") Wide will fit b/c the other two tires I mentioned before are both (12.13") Wide??

There is a guy on another forum that is running the 7 inch kit and stock wheels on 305/55r20 Terra Grapplers which measure 12.4" wide. He says there is no rubbing with that setup. So according to that, the Trail Grapplers you want, which are 12.13" wide, should fit without rubbing on stock wheels. So I retract my previous statement about them being too wide. But honestly I wouldn't want to give that advice and you order and they not fit. Search CST 7'' lift on google. Think his name is bullram on another forum, silver 1500.
