I second the Donahoes.. If you are going to go with the Fabtech 6" why buy the all pro leafs and rear shocks? You will just want to replace them when you do the Fabtech lift.. save some money and just buy leafs and shocks to match the fabtech when you buy it.

Although dropping the front diff will help with the CV axle driveline angle, you still have to consider the ball joints (especially the uppers) and the tie rod ends. Just stick with no more than 2.5" - 3" when going with a lift that pushes down on the control arm assembly, even if you drop the front diff a bit.

As for the rear, you can do a shackle lift (1.5" should keep the truck level if you go with 2.5" up front) or an add-a-leaf (look for a long one that offers no more than 2" of lift). Of course, you could also get new leaf packs that offer about 1.5" to 2" of lift if you want to keep it level with the front, but like the others said, if you're going to go with the Fabtech 6" lift afterward, you might as well save your money and go with the cheaper route - shackles or AAL.
