    It can be done. It may not be recommended by boss, although it is done all the time. Consider putting in a set of timbren blocks in the front to help the suspension and keep things from sinking too much. PM me for more details about the timbrens or boss products.

    If you do it, you will want to upgrade to X code 6k lbs. springs, but you will be over the FGAWR on that truck, and as such, you will be overweight and running illegally.

    Yes, its illegal, but it's really more about liability.......if you get into a wreck and someone really gets hurt and they find its because you knowingly exceeded your vehicles ratings, then you might as well just ask "how many zeros you want at the end of that check."

    Just add the front leveling spring and you will be good.
