An assortment of questions:

Well I am at 95k and I am looking to start doing some replacement in the my front suspension and front drive parts.

Now my first question is what size is the block on my rear axle? Its 2 inch lift block right?

If its a 2 in what happens when if i make it a 3 inch block with chevy shackles? What will it take to get the front end level? Will it take a lift?

Next is what all does everyone replace in the front end.

I am thinking :

ball joints
tie rod ends

anything else that is a common one people do?

I am also looking at KYB MonoMax shocks for front and rear.

Any input is much accepted.

2.5" on 01+ 4x4's

chevy shackles will add 1.5".

upper and lower joints, and tie rods. go with spicer or moog. great quality.

The uppers are the same on the 2wd and 4wd? Cause i know it says the lowers are different on the 2wd and 4wd.

So if i go with a 3" block i wont notice really an difference than my 2.5.

And I am currently running bilstein HD being they are stock on my truck. And well maybe i will get another set if they are a good shock.
