For what it's worth, Stage3 Motorsports has a 8" lift of their website. They are also members here on the forum. Might be worth checking out.

Sounds like he already has the 6" Installed and wants 2 more, Dunno if a whole lift would be worth it for him, if that is the case.

Your Sig, describes me very well. My wife doesn't get it. LOL

There is a few threads about the same thing in the 04-08 Model years IIRC, I am pretty sure you can run aal and a level coilover no issues, as long as you are not leveled already. You are not stacking blocks or pucks or anything unsafe.

I installed an add a leaf kit a while back. It was easy to install and raised the rear about 2 inches. Biggest downside was the stiff ride. The kit basically replaces the flat main with an arched one and really stiffens up the springs.

The idea was that he could talk to them since they have a kit that uses the add a leaf, they could give thoughts and feedback. (I think they have that kit installed on one of their trucks. Could be wrong. )
