11" of lift and finally leveled out!

I just installed 6" coils and 2" spacers and its finally level! I just got one problem I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna be able to get it aligned. Anyone know if an alignment is possible or what ill need to get? New drop brackets? If anyone could post a web link to where i can order some skyjacker axle beam drop brackets with the different holes for the amount of lift that would be great. Thanks Guys!

good lord.....ever thought about getting the 6" drop brackets for those beams to match the coils? Maybe even 8" drops. That camber CANNOT be fixed without it. A few degrees can be fixed.....not 20 degrees.


Truck looks sick as hell though. It's too bad nobody made anything that big for the 98+ IFS trucks. I wouldn't be double lifted if there was a 6" suspension.

All I can help you with is contacting the various suspension manifacturer's who make kits for these trucks. My understanding is that there was at one point, an 8" kit for these trucks but it's been since put out of production. IDK if it was strictly 4x4 or if it'll work on a 2wd...I just don't know. Good luck on your search though.

A member by the name of Metro has a pretty darn large Gen3 on here. Maybe he'll know.

from what i have seen you can still buy the 8 inch kit on ebay. but i know for a fact that you can buy just the the 6 inch drop brackets right from super lift. you have to order them with the part number. you might be able to find an 8 inch lift but idk for sure. also the 4wd and 2wd drop brackets are different.

Welcome to the 11" lift club...!!! As for the alignment, ya if you only have the 4" drop brackets you are goona need at least the 6" drop brackets.. here is what mine looked like after I tossed my 2" coil spacers in (but i have the 6" Skyjacker kit with the drop brackets.. I was able to get aligned perfectly even after my camber was this bad..

If you want to goa cheaper route and still have 4x4..you could easily find a TTB to through up front with all the aprts for super cheap I bet.. my TTB is holding up great with my 35's..and 11" of lift, even though everyone says they are againsdt it.. it's all about getting the angles right
