I'm getting axles with 4.10 gears and putting a trutrac in the rear. I want to put 285/75r17. I'm thinking to do a 3" Atomic coilover in front and skyjacker c25r and maybe a small spacer in the rear with matching viking shocks and longer sway bar links.
Would I benefit from nnbs cv axles, uca's or adjustable panhard bar? Anything I'm missing?

Does anybody know the lift difference between Moog 81069 and skyjacker c25r?

Believe that the Moog 81069 is the Z71 rear spring. Not sure how it compares to the C25R.

It looks like most people using the moog are using a spacer too.
I'm going to get the skyjackers and see how they match the 3" coilovers in the front.

For comparison:

2003 Z71 stock height in the rear, and leveled in the front using stock torsion bar keys; running BFG 285/75R17.

Replacement Moog 81069 springs with air bladders for a Ram 1500 inserted ready to be installed.

Rear height is 39” from ground to lower fender lip unloaded.

Front is 37” from ground to lower fender lip.

The Atomic Fab coil-overs is on the wishlist .

Panhard bar wouldn’t be a bad idea but not really needed unless your over 4” in the rear
With a 3” lift you would benifit with a good set of control arms to correct the ball joint angle
Cognito arms are good so are the kryptonite arms if you got the money find a set of uniball style uca it’ll give you more down travel and smoother ride paired with the new coil overs it’ll make a big difference
Some solid sway bar links like the cognito or kryptonite ones or if money allows it a set of hellwig sway bars will make a considerable difference In handling as well
I run all kryptonite ball joints and wheel bearings in my trucks and have had good luck with them so far
