got teraflex leveling kit, 33 tires, OME shocks....what else?

I have had 33 inch duratracs, old man emu shocks, and the teraflex leveling kit (2in front, 1in back). I already did the grade 8 bolt replacement on the control arms.

My tires are inflated at 35 psi, I did the chalk test and frankly it looks the same to me at 30 psi and 35 psi...except I get better gas mileage at 35, although my ride feels a bit rough. I WILL LOWER MY PSI TO 30, EAT UP THE MILEAGE DIFFERENCES, to see whether or not that solves the roughness issue. I have kept psi at 35 for 1 year so I forget how 30 psi feels.

I have money to spend. Fox shocks look enticing...but what else should I do? The simple teraflex leveling kit does not warrant adjustable trackbar/control arms I feel.

I run my 33s at 28psi and have good tread wear, I'm averaging 18.5mpg with 3.21s and a 6 speed, and the ride is pretty good even with a 2 door. I'd try dropping the pressures even beyond 30psi.

Okay I will air down to 30 psi today and try it out.

I guess with such a simple lift, there really is not much to do, is there?

which leveling kit did you get, ive been looking into one myself and cant decide between the level kit or the performance leveling kit. main setback is the $259 price difference

The performance kit is well worth it if that's all your planning on is a leveling kit
