    Question Fabtech basic, or performance??

    hey all, just recently purchased a 09 texas edition silverado 4X4! im already looking to lift it, ive narrowed it down to fabtech as i had it on my previous ford (2007 F-150 with fabtech 6' lift + 35 MTs.)with only good things to say except that the ride was a lil rough with daily driving. so, should i go with the performance setup with new coil over and shocks(what i ran with the ford), or just use the spacers from the basic setup, with the basic it says 'front coilover spacer system utilizing the factory coilover assembly for a stock like ride <---true? so does anyone run either of these lifts and possibly throw some insight in here for me?

    he ordered it online, not sure where but ill try to find out for you, and the install was pretty easy but i used to do lift kits where i used to work before i joined the marine corps, but if u have most basic hand tools, a impact, a good size hammer, u should be able to do it. just look online and they have several sites that show u how to install a lift, it comes with detailed instructions too
