Don't do it. I have read many threads about daystar being bad so I would not recommend that you install it on top of a lift. The best person to advise you on this is Greg from PRG Products here is the link. Calling him would probably work the best.

First of all, if you are 4WD, the 8" CST kit mentioned in the last post is for a 2WD.

Second, if you only have the ProComp Stage 1 Kit, then stacking a spacer ontop of the PC Spacer is a huge "No-No".

If you have the PC Stage 1 and have added a set of coilovers (Radflo, SAW, etc.) OR if you have the PC Stage 2 with the PC coilovers, you CAN add a spacer on top of that coilover. That does require you to add new Upper Control Arms though, or your UCA's will be hitting the coil buckets. The spacer isn't the ordinary "leveling" spacer though, it does require a 'special' spacer in order for things to work correctly, that Greg can machine for you.

You may want to read through this thread:

Greg stated:

"You cannot add any type of spacer to the coilovers on either Fabtech or PC kit. If you add the upper a-arms, we can machine a custom spacer to fit (it's a bit thicker for the FT kit). One gives just under an inch for the PC kit and upper arms, the other is about 1.5" of lift for the FT kit and upper arms. But any leveling kit is just way too much and the coilovers are desigend to offer the max lift possible with out the upper arms hitting the coilbucket."

an old member who has since sold his truck, SmokenMini, had the PC Stage 2, and had the custom machined spacer from Greg. He also had the TC upper arms.

The new UCA's are a necessity.

You are going to have problems if you put the regular leveling kit on the PC coilover and have stock UCA's. You'll probably have issues even if you do have UCA's when you use the regular/run of the mill level kit spacer.

Note that the TC's aren't shown in that picture, he added them later on because the stock UCA's were hitting the coilbuckets. He told me that himself.

Glad we could be of help. Hopefully it prevented you from purchasing the wrong parts.
