Looking at the kit, you should be fine, they give you the longer shocks, control arms, and pitman arm, so you don't run into the same issues you would with just a larger front spacer. Now, I would still reccommend upgrading to the coil springs, and it's an option through them. I would also HIGHLY reccommend pickin up their dual steering stabilizer kit to help reduce the potential wobble

Not a big fan of uber tall coil spacers here...buy the springs.
IMO it will put undue bind on the springs and ride like crap.

Top Gun will be releasing progressive rate front springs for our trucks very soon. I'd wait and buy those.

yea i was thinkin of just doin springs instead. A 5" spacer just seems like a bit much. The truck already has dual steering stabilizers so im set there.
Thanks. Its gona be a little til I get the lift but I just wanted to go ahead and start my research on lifts. Thanks yall.

I would have to agree with what has been posted,,, buy the springs front and rear if you want to go that high.... you will be happy in the end that you did!
