I don't really want to do rear coil spacers as i think the 6" lift alone will be plenty.
Also with it lifted up will the 5100's for the rear still work? I was thinking of ordering all 4 from Essex Distributors.
I am also thinking of going with Fuel Hostage 20x10 rims with 35" Toyo muds or Nitto Mud tires. What would i need for offset and backspacing? I want the tires to stick out a bit but not too much. I was looking at SD wheel corp and it says you can get them in -24, -12mm and a backspace of 4.5, 5"
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
Bilsteins set to 1.4 will put your truck almost level I do believe fast still has a 1 inch rear coil spacer though so you might be a little nose high if u do this, as far as bilsteins go adjustables in the front and monotubes in the back, I have a shock upgrade kit here ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=124772
it includes the front and rear Bilstein 5100's for 415$ delivered to your door.
Wheel offset will depend on what kind of flares you are going to run, oem flares - 12mm would stick out just a tad, pocket flares with-12 would be flush or slightly tucked, - 24mm looks real good with oem and pockets.
Hope this helps ya out
