D44 with TNT truss

Hey guys, I have a D44 I am building up to get rid of my D30. I bought it used with a TNT truss unwelded, EVO sleeves unwelded (previous owner already drilled holes though) No shafts, 4.10s with factory locker, no knuckles, and beefier LCA mounts unwelded. So I am going to piece it together. I can weld but my question comes in with the lift I am running. Its the 4.5 AEV premium lift and with the bolt on brackets to keep all the steering within spec I need to come up with an idea for the truss. Ride quality and handling is important so I dont wanna fuck it up. What should I do? Weld mounts on the truss? Modify the truss?

Any opinions appreciated

The truss is the one that also raises the front springs about 1" right? If it is then you will need to get the 3.5" springs for the front only.

I would weld the truss in, and locate all the brackets and modify the brackets as needed to work with the truss and weld them on too.
