Has anyone tried this combo? Wouldn't this deliver around 4 - 5" of lift? CV angle would be an issue, I know, but how much of an issue? Especially if the Radflos were adjusted lower for daily driving and then lifted for offroading when tire clearance and full suspension articulation was needed. This is were manual hubs would be great. Also, are the Radflos the only replacement coilovers available? Someone metioned Fox coilovers in another thread.

You would run into upper control arm issues.

you cv boots will rub like crazy, and the angle will just suck

What about using high-angle CV shafts? (If such things exist) It seems this method would still be cheaper than the SLR lift. Or possibly not use the spacers and use longer coilovers?

even with the tc uca's the most lift you could get is 3 inches( i think) your limiting factor is the length of the control arms, even the tc arms make contact on my truck, i probably only have a little over 3 inches of lift on mine, and i still need to take a decent amount of preload out of mine though.i'm also pretty sure that the radflos are the longest shock we can fit in our front ends, if prg greg could have fit a longer shock in there he would have. ac also makes a coilover for our trucks, which is a bilstein 7100 i believe, but you would still need your stock upper mounts. i posted the guys cardomain that had the fox shox, but i'm pretty sure those are emulsion shock, so they are not as performance oriented( no internal reservoir) prg greg would also be able to help you with coilover upper mounts regardless of the brand.

That would be worse... really asking for breakage!
This same idea has been attempted with the AC coils and yes, the CV angles are way too much and it can't be aligned.
Grunzen did it but only after having his LCA mounts chopped and re-welded an inch or 2 out and then dropping about about another 500 on longer CV/axle shafts.
All that will end up as much as the SLR lift anyway.

Yeah, what Shaun said too!

Damn, I thought it was a good idea. Just looking for a cheaper way to fit 35's. I guess I'll stick with 33's for now.
