I know that, what I was planning to do was replace my 1.75in spacers with a true 3.5in lift that is complete. Then get a long arm kit and brake lines(I think this is all I need right to comlete a lift pass 3.5in?) and then put back on my spacers. But this is planning in advance to have it done.

But as far as the 3.5in lift what shocks would you guys recommend because I was looking at the bilstein 5100 or the ranchos9000

Does the bilsteins ride as smooth as the oem?

And as far as my plan, is it somewhat correct?
