But OP, there is your answer.
Call another vendor and grab their rear coil. I think RCX has em for $100. But you will get the lift you want. BDS or Zone is another option
Too slow sir!

Why would OP do that when I have 2 spare sets of RCX coils in the garage. If you want OP, just pay shipping and ill send u a set....also have a spare set of RCX rear shocks!

Umm, I didn't want to say it here and left it for you to tell him. Haha
I worded it in a way so you could of you wanted too

OP there ya go!
Grab both the shock and coil cause I'm sure your shock may not support the longer coil. Either way, better be safe than sorry.

Wow man!! I'll take you up on that!!! Really appreciate it.
I was trying to figure out how to trial and error the right height. It's weird to me that fabtech would send these springs as the replacement to springs that were too low. Oh well. I'm really glad you guys are here. 😀
How do I send payment?

OK, just let me know how much and where and how and its on its way.

So I went to Seattle for two days. Total drive about 300 miles I guess. New tires went on the day before. Didn't have a chance to get the alignment finalized before we went. It was ok, just not perfect.

Found the truck to be unhappy on the free way. It was "floating" too much. Touch the wheel and it would too quickly change direction. Unsettling to say the least...
Then I looked at the tire pressure on the display....The tire geniuses over inflated all four corners. All different amounts too, to make it interesting I guess.

Took all the tires down to 60psi. Tires spec max 65. I have to figure out where I want to run them. Dropped into a good axle and frame shop in Seattle and had them do the alignment. Truck is good now. I do have a shimmy at 120km/hr and up. I think its a tire balance issue. Will deal with that in the next few days.

I've noticed the truck "feels" the bumps a bit more. I think its me not being used to the performance shocks. I know they are working as designed its just not as plush of a ride as the truck used to be.

I love the way it looks. I can find it at the Costco parking lot now. Can't reach the dip stick under the hood anymore... :~) Not without jumping up anyways. I am adding some iphone pics to photobucket. Not great and at night but you get the idea.

I've heard nothing but neg reviews about ZONE, BUT i personally havent ran their kits and so I cant personally say anything, plus i try not to review a product I haven't ran.. I have RCX and am in love. I've ran Fabtech and loved it. I've ran BDS and it was my favorite. I've ran Pro Comp and ehhh it was alright... There are more kits I've ran but they were custom 10" plus kits or kits I didnt like. I chose RCX because of their design, I know one of the top guys over there who designed our kit, and I like the rear coils.

I ended up with the fabtech. So far second set of coils from them and I'm still an inch low in the rear.
I've been running it for about three weeks now. No so excited about the ride. Truck is a bit squirrelly. This is my first lift. I'm wondering if I am just being sensitive and this is normal or if there is an issue.

I would think Fabtech would ride better than mine.

I forgot you need coils.......you still want this extra set
