    Welcome to the club. Is your truck 2wd or 4x4?

    my truck is a 2wd, and i was also wondering if a 2in coil spacer would be good or if it would be better to just get a bigger coil, and where could i get a bigger coil?

    You can't just add a bigger/taller coil because theres not enough adjustment in the upper control arms to realign the front end. Thats why most 2wd lift companies have longer upper control arms in the kits when lifting higher than 2". I think the 2" coil spacers should be fine unless you want to go taller, then you need a lift "kit".

    You'll be fine with the 2" level kit, won't ruin your trucks ride either. You may want to get some new shocks like Bilstiens also. Good luck with your new truck.
