Will 2.8 make the front higher? Just wondering what others are doing to run at 2.8?

If you want to use your 1.75" spacer and still be level you'll want Bilsteins at 2.8" Just be careful doing that with the lift. You'll want to make sure your CV and control arm angle aren't too steep when you do it. I typically recommend keeping Bilsteins at 2.1" max with a 6" lift to avoid any issues or a rougher ride.

I second this. This is one reason I will probably remove the rear coil spacer, and keep bils at 1.4. less chance of a problem.

Thanks bud! The tips are holding up great! I roughed them up a bit with some scotch brite before hand, and the tremclad really holds well. I've used it a few times and I have yet to be disappointed.

The chrome tips took a beating from the salt this winter. This might be a solution..
