Default Suspension lift ??

I'm thinking of getting a 4-6 inch suspension lift, I already have an hbs 2.5 leveling kit. My question is can I still use my level kit with suspension lift??

the only leveling kit recommended for use with a lift kit is either prorunner adjustable shocks or bilstiens, and up to a 1.5" rear coil spacer, it is not recommended to use any kind of coil spacer or strut extension as most lift kits use a strut spacer up front already it is not a good idea to stack 2 of them together. Hope this helps

On a second note what lift are you thinking of going with?

I'm getting a set of 35s, just trying to figure how much money I want to spend on lifting the truck. I see alot of guys with a 3" body lift, I'm thinking that would be more in my price range.

3" body lifts are a cheaper way to get some hieght when campared to a full blown suspension lift you might also consider billstiens or prorunner adjustable shocks to get up to an additional 2.75" of lift.

3"bilstein 5100's front and rear kit= $418
procomp prorunners front and rear=$340
bilstein 5100's front and rear kit= $415
Bilstien 5100's front pair only=$235
Procomp Prorunners front pair only=200

Well I ended up trading my truck for a 2011 crew sport, and it has a 4 in suspension lift and nitti trail grapplers(35x12.5x20). Very happy with it, i may now be looking into some blistiens to raise the front end up a little, but dont want the horrible death wobble I had with the 2.5 hbs i had in my 2010
