the front ones will since its a spindle lift the shock sizes are the same as stock... the rear ones are longer though but they do make them in stock sizes

I actually just bought these skyjacker springs for mine. They were completely bolt on correct? No moding of the shackles or anything?(just making sure before I start installing them this week)
you will need some new u-bolts that have thread coming farther down since the stock ones will not work without the block(unless you are keeping the factory blocks in there then you can use the ones you have) you will also need to drill out the center hole on the spring plate... i think i used a 7/8" hole cutter

I am really liking the skyjackers...I want to get some, but I don't know that 6" will be enough? I have the topper wich sagged me about an inch, and I tow all the time. I like it to be about level when I tow, which means about 1" higher in the rear when I'm not towing.

I already have em, and I don't have stock shackles...so I guess it's my only option.

How much did they run you? I know the chevy leafs are a lot cheaper, I was thinking of that route...

they are like $200 each from summit... i know i could have gotten chevy springs for cheaper but i didn't want to fool with moving spring brackets around

Does any one know what U-bolts are needed to do this? I know they need to be a little shorter or have the threads come down lower cause im not gonna be running any blocks.

any part numbers or links to where I can buy them would be great!

Good work there and an excellent truck. I like the black rims against the yellow on the truck.
