    Your definitely going to have to measure the shaft difference at that height and the rear diff fluid is going to have to be changed more ofter because of the added angle its going to sit at

    Never heard of it. But maybe somethin I would do when I need tires. I did the energy suspension front spring spacer. Gave me 2.75" lift. Back was lowered with shackles when I got it so I put a 3 inch lift in back. Now it sits 3/4 " higher in back. 31x10.5

    @95C1500 just playing. I looked at lifts for my 2wd too because I wanted to sit higher like a 3/4 ton.

    Most lift kits will come with "corrections" to level the rear, or shims or blocks to correct angles....

    The rear blocks in either kit (the 2" coil or the 4" spindle: the 6" is these two kits put together) are tapered
