First step you need to make is ditch the 2in bl and get a 1-1.25 bl

because of the short body, a 2" body lift is dangerous to run. Plus you'll need to cut hoses in order to fit a 2" body lift which a 1 or 1.25 inch bl wont require anything like that which is why I wouldnt get anything bigger than a 1" or a 1.25" body lift.

and i posetd in your other thread...just get a 3" zone suspension lift and a 1" or 1.25" body lift. The zone kit will give you the new shocks and you can get the kit for around 460 shipped then another 100 for the body lift.
