Coil spacers, Or lift coils. I flipped my shackles so it sat level. But every time you put anything heavy in the bed, the front would be higher. Now, I like the back being higher.

I would think Lift Coils would provide a better ride then coil spacers. Then you would want to get longer shocks as well. Depending how much more you want to lift it.

WRONG got to love it.. coil spacers actually dont affect the ride at all being you still have the exact spring rate you have before, because it just sits under the coil...

BUT i would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend lift COILS due to ease of install i have done over 5+ coil spacers on TTB and Ibeam back in the day its a *****.. coils are simple as hell to do...

WRONG ran coil spacers on my 1993 for 5 years stock shocks for about 1 month when it ripped itself inhalf because it was to short...


Procomp and Skyjacker sell a very good 0-2" lift Shock i ran the Skyjacker Hydro's for Years great shock liked it alot
