    Must be the shocks. Mine didn't have any sagging issues but I did the lift and shocks at the same time.

    Did you put the extra spring isolator or no?

    Welcome to the forum risch94risch94m0parjunki. When you have a chance, head over to the Newbie Section and say "Hi".
    Tell us a little about yourself and your ride.
    That way we can welcome you all proper like.

    Typically the daystar leaves the rear low. To correct this, take the isolators you removed from the bottom, to add the spacer, and stack 1 on top of each side.
    You will need longer shocks, as the stock ones are to short, and will eventually pop the seals.

    Good looking rig BTW.
