Default 6" lift plus level 2wd

I know people with 04-08 lifted trucks do this but i wasnt sure on the 97-03 trucks if this can be done.

ive been looking at the 6" lift kits with the drop down cross members longer spindles and longer coil springs. what im wondering is if i can use my 1.5' daystar coil spacer along with the kit and still keep a good set up.

specifically ive been looking at the rcd kits but they seem to only come with a 2" rear block for some reason so id probably have to go bigger in the back anyway. also this would be a way to save money and get to running 35"s. the kit says that 35" will fit with the kit with specific 16" wheels and certain bs with minor trimming. so this begs the question on if the spacer will fit with the kit then my thinking is this would negate the minor trimming required.

Thanks

Your UCA angles could be hurting a bit. ChrisT's truck doesn't look completely level, I would ask him since he already has the lift.

well hes running a 6" block with the traction bars which im not gonna do.

i decided im gonna install the lift the way it was intended first to see what im gonna have to do for the rear then install the spacer. im pretty sure itll work out fine.

Lifts and spacers arent a good combo! This has been discussed MANY times before. Are you wanting the Baja look? If so.....dont use the rear blocks supplied with the lift kit and get 1" shorter blocks made. DONT use a Daystar spacer on top of the lift kit itself!

Lowriders are for guys who can't get it up!
