I feel like im the last one left running an RK lift.

I have the Bilstien problem, where now the front sits higher than the rear. Going to make some spacers to compensate for the rear springs. Compress them, and then slide in the spacers.


Had i known the OME was better, i would be runnin that.

Back to the measurements, Bilstein HDs in front, Monroe 58643's in back and Daystar BB.

Front - 22"
Rear - 22.5"

Riding on stock wheels and tires for now... ordered my wheels, and by the time they got ordered, they were down to 2 wheels, and they're no longer being produced. Every other wheel I had in mind, same story... or 2 month wait. =\

Have something else in mind, but they wont ship til May 20th... so.. I'll look goofy for a week and half.

Your OME shocks don't help lift the rear at all, it doesn't matter how long they are. The Monroe Load Leveler shocks give a little boost because they're actually coil-over shocks. So the pressure from the shock coil deflects some of the weight from the rear springs. The stock length yield about .75" of lift but alot of people (myself included) use the shock for a F150 which is longer and gives (in my case) over 1" of lift.

With RC 2in lift and MLL's in the rear...
Front: 21 1/2
Rear: 22 1/4

Also a quick question for anyone with this set up. Did you guys find it nessary to extend the break lines. Im going to hopefully be doing a bunch of off roading this summer and just want to make sure my lines will be long enough? Thanks!!

**NVM got an answer to my question!!**

RC lift and MLL 58643's.....

Front: 22 3/8
Rear: 22 1/4

It looks like I'm about an inch higher in the front than most of you with same lift. I just installed mine on Sat. so maybe it hasn't settled completely yet. Either that or maybe it's just the weight difference between my 3.7L and your V8's?
