Coil spacers for 3 inch shock extenders

Hi

So i read that stock shocks are useable from 0-1.5" of lift, these shock extenders i have are 3"

would 2 inch coil spacers be correct for these adapters? How much bumpstop for this setup? Im going to get the exhaust spacers as well.

Thanks! Im learning... slowly.

that would work. bump stops kind of depends. they generally do two things keep your shocks from bottoming out and keep your tire from hitting your fender flare. I do know on stock you are safe with no bump stops so to be absolutely safe you would add as much bump as you did extender but realistically you probably don't need near the much. when you remove the coils mount the shocks with extenders and jack your axle up until you hit the stock bumps and see how much if any shaft you have left. if you run out of shaft before hitting the bump add as much bumpstop as will give you an inch or so of protection before bottoming out the shaft.

Good logic there! Thanks, now I know everything!

Disregard previous comment, I'm still a noob @ jks.

Off topic question i dont wanna start a new thread for;

My last rig was independent front suspension.. dont knock it! It was awesome, with this new solid front dana 30 in unsure what connections will affect alignment? I don't want to loosen the wrong thing.. what do i not wrench on?

Ad far as a stock set up goes, the only thing I can think of is your drag link. You will need to recenter the steering wheel after any lift.

the only adjustments are the drag link for steering recentering and tie rod for toe-in.
