Proposed Suspension Lift

Hey guys. I'm trying to put together a shopping list of items that I'll need to lift my truck a bit. I'm not going to be doing any serious offroading at this time, as this is my daily driver. However, I'd like to lift it enough to give it a more aggressive look and stance.

So, after reading through some of the posts here, and listening to several opinions, I've put together the following list. Please let me know your thoughts on the following items.

Xterra Front Lift Coils

Daystar 2" SL (Do I still need to install the spacers if I install the AC coils?)

Timbren Front and Rear Kits

Will the front and rear be balanced out with this combination of parts?
Will I be able to fit a 295/75R16 or 305/70R16 with this lift? (obviously on aftermarket rims) I'd go with BFG AT's.
Can I still use the stock Bilsteins that came on the truck, or will I need to change those out?

And, of course, I'm looking to get the Shrockworks front bumper and sliders at some point, as well. So, the truck will really look BA. :)

Not to copy you, Sexterra, but I'm hopefully going to end up with the setup you have
hey copying something that works is just smart, good luck on the lift! :cheers:
how much of a pain is it to extend the ABS lines
The AAL offers 2.5" lift vs. the shackle 1.5" lift hence the suggestion for extending lines.
i don't think many people are really having problems with them but if you find that under flex you need them longer there's an easy fix.
The ABS lines are hold in place with rubber grommets in a couple places all you have to do is pull the grommet out of the holder and zip tie in a location that allows more extension.
If you don't get longer rear shocks you don't need to extend/move them because the shock will limit the amount of droop.
Congrats, it's lookin good! :cheers:
