I would lift first then get shocks to match to make sure they will be longer enough. Are you doin body lift or what?

I'm going Rancho RS9000x at some point before I die...that's the same time frame all my mods are on so...

what size tires you gonna run with the RCD? you know you will have to change out the rotors with the RCD.

i have KYB shocks and if my plans go as "planned" you can have mine. i wont need them in a month or so. the fronts are like new and the backs have a few more miles on them but still good. and come with lifetime warranty.

i know i like the kybs
