I live in Saskatchewan so my resources for this kind of thing are limited but I don't think ordering is a problem

Well I'll look into it a little more. I seen phildo's truck with just a 6" lift and no aftermarket shocks and it looks pretty good with his front and back heights.

A 6" RCX kit only rids of 1" of your rake.
your rake after the lift will range between 1.5-2.5" depending on your starting rake point.
To get a truck level, members, like myself use Bilsteins to get the front up.

1.4" will give you a level look which is the middle setting.

But, most want to fully utilize the Bilsteins and get it to 2.1 or 2.75"
Going this route will leave you nose high and this is why we put 1"-1.5" rear coil spacers to lift the rear to level her out.

I had my lift at 2.1 with a 1" rear coil spacer and I had a 1/2" rake. 1/2" rake looks too level for my liking and purchased a 1.75" rear coils spacer to get a 1-1.25" rake.

So....if you are going to get a rear coil spacer, get a 1.5" and set it to 2.1 on the Bilsteins if you want 1" of rake or do 2.75" and you will have a pretty near level truck

Otherwise if no rear coil spacer, set it to 1.4 for it to be level or 0.7 for a 1" rake.

Hope this answers your question

Thanks that did answer. I think for now I will be purchasing only 35's and possibly bilsteins for levelling and a better ride with the lift. If I get the shocks installed and decide to go bigger and higher later then they will be there already so really I think if I get them it's a win win situation.

His does look good in pictures....but bear in mind, flares are deceiving.
I do recall reading somewhere that he also wants to add Bilstiens to level it out and go 37's.
I'd say do it man, even at the 1.4 setting.

I have been through 3 different heights of lift over the past 3 months.
Check out my signature to direct to you the pics of the 8" lift, 11" lift and the current 7.5" lift.
You know what, Ill respond after this with the pics and their settings.
