Not really. Its just a guess. 3" body 5" RCD thats 8" and its looking like it'll be around 7" taller than it was with the RCD. Just a guess though. I'll have a better idea when i can actually get it on all fours and get the tires on.

Meh, I think the shock has more to do with the travel then the coils.. coils will ither stretch or come unseated before they limit travel.

I hope you're right. I put the weight of the truck on the coils but without the trac bar in place the axle wants to move all over and its kinda scary lol. I should be able to get the trac bar in today and then I can put the tires on and make any of necessary adjustments if I feel something needs to be done. Plus I'm not sure if the coils will settle a little after a go around the block, also not sure that I ever got that full 5" from the RCD lol.

I mean like upward travel, since the axle would get moved closer to the frame.

you would think it would settle a couple inches at least once you drive around on it

Yes they are used, but I know some coil suspensions have a habit of not sitting at their true height till they get bounced a few times.

its really not super huge like people were expecting. If the body lift wasnt on it'd be perfect.
