1.5 inchs in the ZQ8 coils, just pull a leaf in the back. Put bilsteins on it, if the the shocks are old. I dont see how it couldnt hurt. And a half inch in tire profile. The steering box will help it handle better along with the rear sway bar.

they won't work for your truck. They are for a 4.3L.

Mine rode like crap after swapping in ZQ8 coils and keeping the regular shocks. Swapping to ZQ8 bilsteins fixed it so I'd definately do the shock swap as well.

1.5" drop is borderline okay for stock shocks. might be fine, but definitely will benefit with the zq8 shocks.
