Its done!!!
Exactly 6" lift in the front. But there seems to be an issue in the rear. I only gained 1.5". I was at 38 to fender at center of wheel. Now I am at 39.5"
The front is obviously higher visually too!
So what gives? Did they sell me the wrong springs?
Confused and disappointed after all that work.

I was thinking. If the shocks were too short... The springs couldn't open.
Have to check that tomorrow.

Did it not come with new shocks and coils for the rear?
typically you should get 4-5" of rear lift.
Maybe a 3" at worst....

I would think that if the shocks were too short then the lifted springs never would of went in there. I forgot how much the rear gets, I have all the info in an old dodge talk thread. Hope you get it worked out Op

I just checked all the part numbers. The shocks are the right ones as per the Fabtech parts list.
Its sitting really low in the rear. Truck has nothing in it.

Yes the kits comes with new coils and shocks. But the shocks are in in the kit boxes, they came off the shelf, so I thought maybe warehouse dude made an error. Not so lucky.
Calling the vendor now and then fabtech I guess...
I really cant see where we could have gone wrong with the install back there. Its pretty simple re and re.

She should be sitting level if not with a slight forward rake......
hope it was just an error and they rectify it ASAP

Spoke with the vendor today, they called Fabtech. Seems there is an 'improved" spring on the market, that supersedes the springs I got because in "some" cases the truck sits too low like mine.
New springs being fed exed. Will be here later this week. I don't suppose they are sending a tech to install them for me....?
