    Drive shafts!!! With that much lift you might need em. Also Whats your exhaust like. If its stock you might have to ge the y pipe re routed or just run duals along the side.

    Got the new shocks as well. E_brake has never worked so dont think the longer cable would be worth the money LOL. As far as the shafts go I am hoping as of now but if it is needed I should be able to get them done. Now all I need is someone to break in my garage take everything out of their boxes install it on the truck fill it with gas and lock the door to the garage on there way back out. ANY VOLUNTEERS?????? LOL

    Get some PB blaster or some other penetrating oil. Start spraying down the ubolts and spring bolts. I assume your springs come with bushings?

    Gresable bushings and heavy duty front shackles while you have it apart would be a good choice if you have the $$$. Also are you planning on ditching the sway bar?
