So I want to get some cali lean but i dont want to get smaller blocks out back so what could I do to get some more lift up front. I have a 7" procomp suspension lift and 3" body lift.

EDIT: Looking to use a coil spacer. Someone point me in the right direction? Whats the biggest spacer I should go with on a 7" lift?

is your truck 2wd or 4wd? cuz spacers are for 2wd and keys are for 4wd.

edit: i looked thru your pics and your truck is 2wd. only option is coil spring spacers, i ran the small one for a little while on my fabtech kit, I wouldnt run the bigger one they sell. you could also buy drop shackles to lower the rear 1" or 2" since you said you dont want to switch blocks

Could you send me a link to the spacer you had? and why not the bigger spacer? I dont have a problem with switching blocks I just figure if its going to cost me money even if its not expensive why not lift more instead of going lower.

i just ran the daystar 1" coil spring spacer, i still have it laying around if you want it, i paid like 50 for it so ill let you have it for 30. i ran it for like 4 monthes and it gave me 1" up front. I wouldnt run the bigger one because it compress's the coil to much and bows it out. makes the ride pretty stiff and also you angles start to get crappy

So is the spacer itself 1" or did you measure a 1" increase at the front bumper?

the spacer is probably a little bigger than 1", it sits ontop of your coil spring and spring bucket. measured at the fender, i got pretty damn close to 1" which was good for me. install was a couple hours, itd probalby be easier to put a small block in which would take like 20 minutes

because they just sit below the coils. I'm not sure just seems a tad bit sketchy to me. Are you happy with them?

mine are installed on top of the coils. and yes i have no complaints. the ride is a little firmer than stock, but thats to be expected from a spacer or lift coil
