create a sig.....



to me looks like 2wd Gen3....I-beams. First get the 6" kit on then go from there. 3" or 2" BL is available on your model. Taller springs are another option, but at the risk of bad camber.

Fabtech has a 5.5" kit for your 98+ coilspring truck....it consists of Spindles, upper arms, and springs.



Search for the profile of a member named Dustin S. He's got basically your exact truck and has done everything you can do that's a bolt-on for the 98+ coilspring trucks. He's running 35's.
