i need to compensate even more... For suspension I currently have the RC 7.5" lift. I want more lift. Fabtech seems like the only logical thing right now even though all i hear is problems with tre's and such with them.


Are the fabtech knuckles taller then the RC knuckles? If they are the same height in theory all I would need is a fabtech subframe and drop brackets for the differential?

I plan on getting coilovers instead of the clusterfuck fabtech has.

my spindle measures out to be 18 inches, but if you are going for about 10 inches of lift may consider GMR UCAs

All of that work, only to gain about 2.5" inches. Doesn't seem worth the hassle..:shrug:

I dunno if half an inch would be worth it. To me it would be either body lift, cognito, fts, or go all out and SAS that hoe!

you gain more than half an inch, your diff drops like 2 more inches for the same angles but at 10 inches.

i'm still thinking coilovers and a fabtech subframe would be cheaper then a bulletproof?

Your front end would be completely fucked if you just added Fabtech crossmembers :imo You just need to get their whole kit and sell yours.

Don't wanna do cognito anyways. You wouldn't be able to run the wheel/tire setup ya got now. If it was me and money wasn't a big issue I would get the 12" bulletproof.

are you stepping up in tire size or are you doing this for more clearance for your tire/wheel set-up? if its more clearance for your tires then I'd say do the fabtech, but if you want a noticable difference in height, look into a bigger kit alltogether like FTS, bulletproof or cognito.
