Default Zone lift question

I'm new here but not new to lifted dodges. Have a question however on zone 6" lift. Have one going o this weekend but not sure what the actual lift height is of this kit. No lift/suspension is 100% spot on. 6" front 3" rear my stock 4x4 height is 37 front 39.5 rear what can I expect from lift after install. I have rims already selected but debating whether my 8 speed 3.21 can handle a 35.6 tire or if I have to settle for a traditional 35" (34.7"). By the way I my upgraded tires and rims only adding 20 lbs per corner when most people adding 45 lbs of weight per corner

I just installed a 4" Zone lift on my truck with the 3" rear coils and I got exactly 4" of lift in front and 2.5" lift in the rear. Difference between my truck and yours is I have an outdoorsman which came with different rear coils (my guess is .75" lift in rear over yours from the factory) and front struts that are .5" taller which nets about .75" lift in front over non-outdoorsman.

My guess is you will net real close to 6" up front and 3-3.5" in the rear. Of course once you go to a taller tire, your overall lift will increase. Keep in mind your rear springs will need to settle and you will need to have the front end aligned before you can get accurate measurements on the lift.

My question is this then...

Since my current rake factory is exactly 2.5 inches rear higher. a 6" front 3" rear would put me nose high if the math is accurate? anyone had this experience after lifting a truck? I don't want nose high a 1/2"-3/4" rear rake is acceptable. i really don't want to add a 1" coil spacer in the rear after the lift. Zone mention to not use the preloaded ring in the front which would reduce the front height by about 3/4". Has anyone had this issue?

I think you should be pretty darn close to be honest. If you left out the spacer up front, you would not have a nose high condition. I'm certain Brandon will respond and he can give you the specifics.

The Zone kit should give you exactly 6" up front as far as I know. And theoretically the 3" rear coils should give you exactly 3" on the back. So then yes, by doing the math with your truck having 2.5" of rake now you will be nose high. The setup I typically recommend to almost everyone running a 6" Zone kit is to get the 5" rear coils and a set of Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts for the front and set them at 1.4". Most trucks will end up looking dead level with that setup. If you want to retain a little bit of rake you can set them at 0.7". Either way running a 35" tire (or close to it) will look fine at that height. Here's a link to my lift thread on my 1500 running that exact setup - 6" RCX lift with Bilsteins at 1.4" Installed on 35's

How much of the front lift comes from the puck?

I started nearly the same as you (36.5 front and 40 rear) and had the d41 kit installed (6 front 5 rear). Ended up with an additional 5 inches both front and rear. Truck still slightly raked which is the way I like it.

I also have the 8 speed with the 3.21 and went with 36.8" GY MTRs. Personally, am happy with the result but may go with 35 next time simply because of the look. Did not notice a difference in acceleration/pull but then again, I don't try to race the rice burners with my 2+ ton truck. That's what the mustang's for

@boosted.

The preload spring/ puck is about 3/4 in.
