Dodge 2500 12 " lift.....

I have been over looking everyones posts but just recently registered to make a post. Ive done the searches and have a couple questions

Im goin for about 12 inch lift on my 2500. Have 2 inch spacer and want to go with Full Throttle 10 inch coil. Was planning on using Thuren Fab for my steering issues. Question 1 is what Drop Pitman should I use for this size lift and Thuren Fab steering components? and 2 Would I be able to fit 38's with a Cepek Long arm kit without getting it extended and no rubbing? or should I get one made couple inches longer from Extreme suspensions?

Also for rear, where should I get leavs for the back from and what size lift spring would make truck sit level... Not a huge fan of front higher than back or vice versa...

Sorry for the standard suspension repeat questions Bang Head but I searched and didnt find what I was lookin for. Most were 1500 questions. Thanks in advance. Great site.

use the extreme drop pitman arm. yeah you can run 38s on the DC arms and go with leaves in the rear.

You could go with 7" coils with spacers and be fine, unless you want the bottom of your truck to sit like 2" above your tires.

Rattlin' Dodge had 7" Skyjacker and 2.5" spacers on 38's. They fit easy.

If you are just looking to clear 38's, no need for 12" on a 2500. Hell I ran 27's with 4.5" on my 2500 no rub. I clear 42's with 11" of lift

Have Don build your long arms too, the cepeks arent that thick. they are .120 wall thickness, i would go with .95 DOM tubing it is alot stronger and will be able to support the weight of the truck and i would extended them some too instead of the regular long arm length, which is 47/48 inches i believe.

You will have noticeable pull back on the axle running 12" of suspension on 6" arms, even the cepeks.

Id run 12 inches of lift with 38s. But I love the "sky over ythe tire look". Its a california thing i guess.

im running 10" with 38.5's with no rubbing issues.. no need to go more suspension i think it might look goofy. the only reason i went 10 was so i could get full flex.

also what about driveshaft issues at 12" of suspension? isnt he going to have to get a custom shaft made

I bet it was tight with 27's, though. ROTFL
