    Hi,
    I have a 1980 GMC k2500. It currently has a pretty good sized body lift and I believe an add-a-leaf. It sits pretty high. I have 36 inch Good Year Wrangler military tires on it and it clears them no problem. I want to add more suspnsion lift. What would be the best ay for me to go? Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Rough Country??? is pretty popular here But any of the major lift companys would be fine as far as the homemade Shackles and Shackle Flips..... well it just depends on your fab skills really there are `very well designed kits out there you could try to copy .
