    I found someone selling 8" lifted coils for cheap. But if I get them what else would I have to get besides rear leaf springs?

    Specs on the truck? Is it already lifted? If not, you'll need all kinds of parts.

    You'll have to change out the shocks to a long travel shock and put blocks in the rear

    Know a good site that has shocks for cheap? I would have to mess with the stering or driveshaft?

    Haha ur better off just buying a complete kit. By time you get done piecing this thing together it would be cheaper just to buy a kit, been there done that.
