@Fifty - do you have those spring part numbers and manufacturer info? That would be great, didn’t see it that provided w the spring specs in your video.
Thanks! Looking good, smart moves too. Great

I put them in the comments. I’ll go back and check when I get better reception. I have 1 bar and no WiFi so no YouTube access at the moment

I used these, Dayton springs 351-897HD with Bilstein 5100 shocks 24-253260 and a one inch block I. The rear. The front has a 2” leveling spacer with 5100s as well with it adjusted up two notches. The ride is so much better then the factory air leveling system.

Look up Skyjacker c25r or c50r
The c25r lift the rear 2.5 inches the c50r lift 5 inches and both provide a factory like ride and towing capacity. Says fits 2000-2006 but will fit up to the year gm switched to irs. I had c25r in for couple months but lifted front more than planned so switched to the c50r and have been running them almost 2 years now.

Did you run spacers before these springs? Just wondering the ride quality and handling difference between a spacer versus lift spring.

On road spacers generally will ride and handle similarly. Offroad spacer sometimes can move around and make noises or even pop out if you're driving aggressive enough. Also you will have more flex and articulation offroad with longer springs. If your trucks mostly on pavement spacers are a great option. I don't ever run them on my vehicles because I do a lot of farming construction and hunting so I spend almost 50% of my time driving in fields and logging trails. Last thing I need is to hit a washout or something at 50+ mph and have it yeet a spacer into the woods and have to limp home with it sitting crooked I have had that happen in a field with a friends truck while working few years ago.
