Got all my parts in. Should get everything done this weekend. New proforge ball joints (upper and lower), marks 2.5 inch lift, Bilstein struts, monroe shocks, New upper control arms, 1.5 wheel spacers, 265/70/17 fearce attitude tires on new mostly black rims. I got this truck in 2004. Only things i had to fix was a new starter, brakes and rotors, driver window motor. A little less than 60,000 miles on it. No dents or dings.:biggrin:

Are your rims 6X5 or 6X5.5 ? If they're 6X5 you could see if they'll fit without spacers.

6-5 Definty need the spacers. They would hit the upper balljoint.
