Guess it would depend on how much shock travel you want and how crappy of a ride you're willing to deal with. But I would guess not more than a couple of inches before it rode like total shiat. I put 3" coils on stock length shocks for a couple of days and that rode like crap, the front end bounced all over the road until I swapped everything out.

Raise it till the shocks max out and that is how high you can go:flipoff2::D


Probably only 2" or so but that will still hamper drop.

Running without shocks will destroy the suspension components you just bought. I would not do that. Shocks are friggin cheap, you can get some Doetschtech ones in nearly any size you'd need for $25 a shock, or save for ranchos when they have their buy 3 get 1 free deal. You can check exactly how big you can go before changing your shock by taking 1 from the front and 1 from the rear off. Then measure it's collapsed length and extended length. Put the shock back on and see how much extension you have left.

Not to mention running without shocks will break the belts in your tires (I did on my firewood truck).

Beats the bushings out of it quick.
