hi

ok i have a 2000 v6 sport 2wd. i was wondering what the biggest and widest tire i can fit (on the stock 15in wheels) in the wheel wells if i got a 3 in body lift? also, if i got the body lift, is there anything i can do to level out the front and rear? if i added the fabtech 2in basic lift with the body lift, would i be able to fit 33s? also, could i just buy 2in longer coils instead of the fabtech kit or would i definitely need the shocks as well? one last Q, is there anyway or anywhere i can go to recalibrate the speedo with out buyin that chip thing?

thank you soo much for your time. i did a lot of searching on this board but i kept getting mixed up between 4wd and 2wd from the posts. so i just wanted to make a post specifically for my truck. i wont be doing any off roading so this will just be for looks. thanks again.

ok i lied, THIS will be the last question. im lookin for a very wide stance for my truck while keeping the stock rims. Can i just buy some wheel spacers to widen out the tire stance? ok ill shut up now!

Ok, I'm not really the guy to answer these questions...but i'll at least give you an idea of what the right answer is.

To achieve enough height for 33's on a 2WD you need 6" of lift over the stock set-up. I'm pretty sure you can put the 3" body and the fabtech kit and with a little trimming get enough room for 33's on aftermarket rims...but i'm not sure if you can do that with stock rims.

32X12.50 isn't a bad tire to go with...it's true that you will have more choices with the 33's...but some 32's would do a good job too.

The wheel spacers would be a good idea too, but since wheel spacers go for about $120 a pair, you could spare a few extra bucks and get some new wheels that will do the job better.

And about the shocks...once you get in the air and actually use your truck...you will wish you had shocks...so get the fabtech shocks and then a pair for the rear and then you will be stylin.

how about this? if i got the 3in body lift and flipped the leafs in the back. the back should be around 7in correct? now how can i accomplish that in the front? i was thinkin maybe body lift, fabtech lift, then maybe coil spacers? but i heard that wouldnt work for ring and pinion.

any more help would be really appreciated
