Default adding more lift

Hey everyone I have a couple questions about adding more lift to my truck. So right now I Have a 5.5" fabtech lift and sitting on 35's. I want to add 3 more inches by putting a 3" coil spacer and then level out the rear. My questions are, if I add the spacer will it mess with my driveshaft, will it stuff my front tire into the bottom fender corner near the door, and will I need to get a drop pitman arm? Another question is, is the truck sits level now so couldn't I Just put 3" up front and 3 in the back and sit level still? ANd also how big of tires can I run being at 8.5" of lift?.

Others might be able to chime in who have done this sort of lift before, but you will need a drop pitman arm and probably new driveshafts. You should be able to run 36s if not 37" tires. I'm assuming you have a double steering stabilizer. If not, you will need a double stabilizer kit. I don't see why you shouldn't be able to just add 3" in the front and 3" in the rear if you already have the truck leveled out.

Im not sure if the fabtech lift came with a drop ptiman arm or not. Looks like right now I can clear 36's. I wonder if i can clear 38.5s but Ik i need gears
