If your happy with the ride hight then its perfect for you.. Thats the nice thing about adjustable coils... Ride hight is your choice... Keep in mind that the closer to stock ride hight you are the better the truck will perform...This will allow the truck some droop ...

Thanks for the heads up. With the amount of thread I have showing I still have a slight rub with 32's, might try and go up another 1/4 inch.

Where are you rubbing? If your rubbing on the fender wall a better alignment pushing the tires forward will cure that! If your rubbing on the frame a differnt offfset wheel will be the best way to fix that.

Yeah I am rubbing in the pinch weld area. I did the pinch weld mod and it fixed a lot of hte rubbing but I still get some under off camber turns. Into parking lots etc..

If I go to get an allignment what do I have them adjust to get the tire more forward?

2 1/4" on the drivers side and 2" on the passenger side. Mine are the Fabtech Dirt Logic's but I think they are 'bout the same. Drivers side is always set a little firmer.

Just got my Donahoes and am running them at about 3" of lift. I love em!!!!! I have 33's on it and they don't rub but a little bit on the pinch weld. Well worth it though.

Go Donahoe!!! :D :D :D

Just out of curriosity, why is droop important? It seems to me that it wouldn't matter if your suspension is forced down by the adjustment of the coil or if it droops down while in the air. Can you enlighten me? :D

You have 3" of lift (on a non-extended coilover) meaning you only have ~1" of down travel left. You are driving down the street and run into a deep pot hole. This is going to cause your 1" of droop to max out, and you're doing to bottom out that side of the suspension. Things like ball joints, and cvs do not like to be maxed out, and will eventually fail. Plus it doesn't make for a decent ride when you get a thud from the coilover drooping all the way.
