    Ok, I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 W/T 4.3L Auto Trans 2WD..it has In-cab adjustable air shocks in the rea, and stock coil spring and shocks in the front. I want to put a 2" daystar coil spring spacers with Rancho RS5000 shocks on the front and 1" rear leaf spring blocks on the back. Do you guys have advice, comments,or help??? please any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot!!!

    I had "Daystar" coil spacers on my last truck and never had any trouble. Good luck!

    Are new shocks required in the front if you put the spacers in? I'm sick of the grandpa lean of my truck!

    No, you do not need new shocks with the spacer. I put a set on my Titan and it made a world of difference in the appearance.

    You might like the Ranch RS9000 series shock a bit better. I used the before on my last 1/2 ton and they ere great for off road use. If you are staying on paved roads than you are alright with the something smaller. Good luck.
