Can someone please tell me whats needed

love the look, but using as a work truck, do NOT need it lowered 


What about lifting??? Can i just take off lowered kit and pop on this Rough Country set, would it be all i need???

is there any extras in that kit that i wont use?? Im getting yes and no answers to new knuckles

yes and no to rear coils??


seems im missing my right rear shock?????

never took notice of that, or if a problem

reason why i bounce alot??

Is it off due to muffler??


Please any info helps

All you need are factory spindles, (probably a factory shackle but you didn't post a picture of the shackle on the truck now, the spring looks good so you won't need to move them other than the shackle. 


As far as the lift... Get away from Rough Country unless you just want to spend the money to say you got the name.


Personally if this we my truck, And I was going to be USING it everyday. 

I would get a set of 1.5in Spring spacers so you stay aerodynamic and you're not bouncing all over the road like you're sitting on 13in Daytons on a 50 series tire with cut springs. - http://amzn.to/2qZSQTi ( Spacer Kit $34 )

And a 2in set of rear lift shackles. http://amzn.to/2mlBs5H ( Shackles $55 ) 

I would also put on a set of rear shocks. http://amzn.to/2DpwA81 ( Shocks $28 )


If you want to go with spindles, that's fine as well. Here is the front and Rear set at 3in http://amzn.to/2FuWasK ( Kit $275 )


Personally I would check to see if the Spindles on the front are factory... If not I would get a set of inexpensive ones from a junk yard and go with the spacer and the shackles. If they are factory... Better yet!
