Definately use a 2600 lb bag. I have DJM 4" LCA's and ART coolride cups. The DJM arms are not needed, in fact, we built the cups up a full inch to not get horrible lift.

All in all i have 9" of up and down travel in the front :head:

No, i have stock upper control arms. The bag is limited by the shock. We set it up so the bag is at 8" full extended so that it will not be over-extended at full lift.

5inch lowered control arms aren't going to do squat with getting you to lay ... you can lay out with stock control arms provided you have the right wheel/tire combo ...all 5inch lowered control arms are gonna do is not get you enough lift for a decent ride if you don't set things up right.

i have a set of 5" djm lca's and i was going to put them in to get more lift, but i checked out a truck a few days ago and he was running 5" djm lca's and at full lift up front his truck was like 2" taller than mine maybe....and he had a ton of positve cabmer...so im going to stick with my stock lca's
