Procomp and Dirtlogics are a no.

You could probably find some that would work with it, but they aren't gonna be cheap :imo

the problem you run into if you want the procomp or fabtech dirt logics is that they are made for 6" of lift not sotck or 3" so they are too long. now there are other companys that make coilovers for your application, but i believe most are sold as a kit with ucas and such but you might be able to get just the coils

To replace a 2" leveling kit yes.. But to sit at 3" with the ability to crank no. Unless you ran those and a 1.5-2" spacer.


EDIT- However I wouldnt go much Higher than 3.5"

I guess you COULD. Since they can be set at stock height and cranked to 2" over. So yeah, you could replace the stock strut with Bilsteins.

Before I smartened up I was going to run the Bilsteins to replace the stock strut and CCM. I would have still been running the Lower Extensions from Fabtech though. Im glad I went full Coilover replacement, but with your set up it would be fine.

No. The Bilstein is a direct replacement for the stock strut. You use the stock spring and mounting hardware. At the same time, you top spacer will work just like stock.

How can I know so much about lowering a truck but know virtually nothing about lifting one?
wut?? I dont know a damn thing about lowering a truck :D . I did learn the the rear can be lowered by running a shackle flip and spring under conversion. I never new that.

Front: Strut spacers, driver and passenger side diff drop brackets, differential skid plate, and hardware.
He'll be ok to crank a tad over 3"
