Thanks for the tip!
I'm hoping to use my cousin or buddies lift, I did the spacers in my driveway and it wasn't much fun
Did you do any kind of pitman arm drop?

No, but I did upgrade my stabilizer (Caught an unbelievable deal on a carli stabilizer) and I put an adjustable carli track bar on to recenter the axle. Not sure what inch spacer y'all are running, but I threw some 3's under mine and it pulled the axle over and 2"....

Ordered a set of RC adjustable control arm for $180 shipped
Thinking of going to a 3" spacer in the front, maybe 3.5" and 1.5" in the back


Hmmmm

Looks like its probaby going to be a 3" spacer since there's one by chance on Craigslist within 5 miles of my actual house
I'll need a track bar drop bracket, sway bar drop brackets and probably a drop pitman arm and the blocks for the rear
I just put shocks for 2"-4" of lift on this summer
That's basically what the $800 procomp lift kit comes with and it'll work out for right around $400-$450 this way
Most of it will be temporary since we'll both be out of school this time next year too

I have lights everywhere
There's just a set of stock tails in that box that I'm going to open up and put LEDs in and the TYC box was a set of 4th gen dodge tails that I got my dad for Christmas
I bought a set of LED tails for her truck, I think they were spyder and had nothing but problems with them till one literally fell out as she was driving to my house, they're ripped apart in my room now with her stock headlights too lol


I went ahead and ordered all new bolts for the control arms from spohn figureing I'll have to cut most of the old ones off
