Uh... lets back track.Hey guys. New guy here. Had a few questions regarding my lift. I bought a 6" Tuff Country kit with all new springs and shocks for my 97 extended cab long bed. First off let me say that I couldn't get the right installation instructions if my life depended on it. I called and talked to 2 different people and they both sent me the wrong stuff. On top of that the instructions that came with it were wrong. Anyway, what do you do when the exhaust is in the way of the new, bigger spring? I already cut my hanger cause there was no other possible way to get the spring in. Also, the height at my tailgate is over 5 ft. Is that normal for an obs with a 6" lift or did I screw something up?
I'm assuming 4x4? What part of the exhaust is in your way? IIRC, the stock exhaust shouldn't bump into anything. If it does, just stack it or dump it before the rear wheel? No reason to keep the stock exhaust anyway, it's junk (in my opinion).
My tailgate on my truck probably sits at around 5'5 or so. I don't think my girlfriend is taller then it. I'll check on that later. The rear springs and such are easy to put in. They'll need a bit of time to "settle" so to speak, so bare that in mind. You may have ended up with an extra inch or two, but after riding around for a day you'll come to find that it lowered itself.
Do you have an RSK on the front or rear? Those will play into your height factor too. Things to think about.
