    I purchased and installed this 3/1" leveling kit.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/272495531029

    I would like to lift the front end another 1"-1.5" Any suggestions? Without removing my spacer kit. Lol

    I plan to run:
    Wheels 17x8.5 et-10
    Tires 285/65-17 (since the 4.7 is kinda weak, I chose this tire size to keep the gearing close to stock)

    Hey. Nice looking truck. Are you trying to get a total of 4 inches in the front? It's never a good idea to stack lift kits. To keep your truck driving smooth and maintain the reliability it's know for. I would recommend scrapping what you have and getting the Tuff Country 4.5 inch lift kit.

    The truck looks great! The stance is perfect. The rims seem to have more offset than the original wheels..? :notsure: I'm running 34s with only 2.5" of lift so 3" is plenty for the tire size you're running. :thumbsup:

    I ditched this leveling kit. The front uca was pointed downward and caused the spindle to rub the springs. Then I got adjustable bilsteins, with 1" daystar front leveling kit. Also, got the ebay front uca. The lift is perfect and the ride is superb now.

    Thanks man. I got 1.5" hub centric wheel adapters so it gave it a wider stance. BTW, I tried towing the other night from Socal to Norcal. My 31.6" diameter tires was killing me. The 4.7L was crying lol.
