The rim offset (or backspacing as you referred to) can be a few different options depending on what you want. The 4 practical options you have are:

18x9 0 offset (5" backspacing)
18x9 -12 offset (4.5" backspacing)
18x10 -12 offset (5" backspacing)
18x10 -24 offset (4.5" backspacing)

Any wider than that and you're going to run into major rubbing problems with 37's. The 18x10 -24 offset would already be pushing it and require some trimming.

The Bilstein front adjustable struts are around $110 a piece I believe and yes Bully's Performance (different than Bully Dog) can get those as well. If you sent Eric an email and tell him I sent you he'll help you out right away and get you pricing on whatever you want.

The 18x9 0 offset will give you the least chance of rubbing so if that's all you're concerned about those are the wheels to go with.

Yes, Bully's Performance can put together a full package for you including the lift, Bilsteins, wheels/tires, and anything else you may need to get the job done.

I would recommend the 6" BDS kit with the 5" rear coils and the Fox 2.0 shocks. On the front you could either go for the Fox 2.0 coil overs or get a set of Bilsteins and set them at 1.4" to be level. That's typically the setup most guys will run. Contact the guys at Bully's Performance (sales@bullysperformance.com) and let them know that you're a forum member and what you want and they'll get you started and hook you up with the forum discount.

As far as running the 18's and 37's goes that's not an issue. You just need the correct rim size and offset to do it. How much poke do you want on your tires? That will factor in to what size and offset you want to run as well.
What he ^^^ said

Any questions, hit us up with an email
