I'll probably pull them down this weekend and see what I'm working with...then contact you about what I'd like and what is possible.

Thanks again for the info.

What did you end up going with ? I am looking at bumping up my stock sizes as well on my 2008 duramax 3500.

could you give me a price on a set of 1.5 inch , or a 2.0 inch set ? I have a 2002 f250 with the 20 inch harley wheels and the front rub some while turning all the way either way. (rubbing on the leaf springs) or maybe we could trade out something? i have a couple of waterjets, (standard and 5 axis) ......
