    Well, with 7 inches of lift and cut-out fender flares, you should be able to run some 38's. What size tires are you looking to run with this added lift? I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess you've still got 1/2 ton axles. Before you go 38's or bigger, those axles should be upgraded to 3/4 or 1 ton units.
    As far as manufacturers....Tuff Country Ez-Rides and BDS are good, soft, flexy springs.

    If you'd be so kind as to fill out your profile, that'd be great. Go to "my home" and then chose the personal information selection in the "edit" section. Your profile will tell us who you are, where you're located, and what you drive. Thanks.
