Default The Zone lift

Alright guys ive been looking through the threads and seen that not to many people have the Zone 6 inch lift so i thought id post my experience with it. Overall love it, awesome ride and gotta say compared to other lifts my buddies have its taller over must and about dead even with RCX. However the rake is insane (went with the 5" rear coil) I have billsteins on now at 1.4 and still have a nasty rake so this week moved it up to 2.8 and now shes eyeball level. Gonna post pictures up this week with measurements.
Hope this helps people debating on which lift to go with.

Congrats on the lift.
Dead even with RCX? RCX typically has 1/2" over other lifts. But what is 1/2". It's hard to tell

Either way, with the 5" rear on both BDS and Zone, Bilsteins need to be maxed to be leveled. Gotta love the drop brackets (amazing drop brackets)

Lets see pics.

BTW: TimW is also running the Zone kit too
I think he did the 3" rear coil though and has his Bilsteins at 1.4"

thanks for the help guys.
Now I have a new problem I took in to my shop today and we removed the small preloaded spacer but didnt really make much difference in height. Ive went to shops all around Delaware and nobody knows how to work on bilsteins? I just want to get as close as level as i can but im running into problem after problem. Now the driver side of the truck is sitting about a inch lower then the passanger both sides are on 1.4 setting and the lift shop said the bilsteins are causing the problem( we swapped the rear coils thinking maybe that and nothing). Any ideas? Every shop has pretty much given up on me saying just deal with the rake and hope the trucks leans back to level. im starting to regret the lift i had no idea this kinda problems came with it

They need to disassemble those bilsteins. There are notches on the body of them. 5 to be exact and each notch is the height
That's what the spring seat sits on and gives you height.
Middle = 1.4"
Top = 2.75"
