No you can reuse the same shocks. If you are upgrading shocks you can get them an inch longer though if you would like.
You should not need a new track bar for this. At least I have never heard of a soul doing so.
Also, please fill out your sig so we know what you are driving.
Did you adjust the caster adjustments on the lower control arms when finished with the spacer kit?You won't "need" a new track bar but your axle will be off center, shifted toward the driver's side, a new trackbar is a good idea.
Also your diff will end up being pulled closer to your fenders, if you run 35's you may have clearance issues there depending what wheels you use. Longer control arms would help.
Did my spacers without a spring compressor, make sure you undo the sway bar ends, shouldn't need to undo control arms. Get a fat friend to sit on the diff or put a bottle jack between the diff and frame to get that extra little bit of room, should only take a couple pumps to get enough room.
If you had to do all over again would you do the 2.5" or stick with the 2.0"? Im cusious because of tire clearence, were going to run the stock rims with 35's so would teh extra 1/2" be helpful? I do not want to get into purchasing new comtrol arms, are the stock arms suitable for the 2.5" in your opinion?Yah, I cranked them to 'lengthen' the control arms, mainly I did it trying to get more tire clearance at the fenders.
How do you figure that? That link proves nothing. Truck tracks and drives fine, doesn't pull or wander at all.
