I'm getting ready to install some 2" coil spacers on my z85. It is my understanding that I will need longer bolts when doing so. as I got mine off ebay, they didn't come with them. Does anyone know, or have a link to the information, exactly what size bolts I will need to purchase?

Those do not require any bolts, they go between the spring and the top hat of the coil over. You will need to compress the spring, remove the top, drop the spacer in, then reinstall the top of the coil over.

Make sure you have a real good spring compressor, you will have to compress the hell out of the spring to get the strut back together.

That it will, it gives you lift by compressing the spring before you even put the weight of the truck on it.

yes, but it will keep the short at the top of its travel, so you will get no drop. Also, the shock length will limit the lift amount
