I'm looking to replace my front coilovers with something a bit better, but do not have any sort of lift. My question is can I put on DR's or Saws or Radflos without any issues? Would I have to replace my upper control arms? Thanks for any info, as i'm a newb when it comes to suspension stuff.

Also, by going with the above mentioned coilovers, would this level the truck out as well?

Short answer: Yes and yes.

DR Coilovers are a direct replacement, I believe and yes, you can preload them enough to level it out without a spacer.

So by installing new coilovers, I would not have to replace my UCAs?

Generally, no. That usually only happens or needs to be done when you go for bigger heights with lifts. If you read around, the 4WD with the 2 1/2" kit has the A-arms hitting the coil buckets, but the 2" does not. So just don't overcrank the preload and you will be fine.

Depends on the shock. DRs not arm is needed, for SAWs you need the arms.

The 2" Kit does make the upper control arms contact the spring buckets. Greg from PRG has already said the biggest lift without this happening would be 1.3".

If you can only go 1.3" without bucket contact, then how does the leveling kit work? That has a 2" spacer, so theoretically there would be contact?

The 1.3" lift has a smaller spacer. The 2" lift has a 1.2" thick spacer so I would think the 1.3" kit would have around a 3/4" spacer. I machined my 1.2" spacer down to .900 and the UCA's still hit the coil buckets. I'm thinking 3/4" spacer may do the trick.
