    4\" lift suppliers and prices

    Thanks for all the replies to my previous post. Now I just need help finding the best parts for the best price a buddy of mine told me to get the pro-comp but I dont really know. I want to do new springs all the way around, shocks etc. Ireally want to do it right the first time and only do it once. Any help is appreciated.

    I got my 4" lift from rough country. The one with front and rear springs is 459.00, it comes with shocks along with all the parts & pieces needed. I have been satisfied with the one I got from them. You can check them out at roughcountry.com

    yeh, but the rear springs are a pricey option on ANY lift, and then i had to get new shock brackets, new steerin stabilizer bracket, and 10 shock cylinders (8 shocks 2 stabilizers) so itll add up quick that also included extended braided steel lines if i remember right.

    rear springs are spendy to the point that I wouldnt get any. A ORD 4" shackle flip costs less than 4" springs...why not just do that?! =) factory springs arent so bad, if they were *really* droopin, I guess u could always get them re-arched...can't cost too much to have that done. I just de-rusted mine...epoxy painted them and added some UHMWPE between each leaf to minimize binding and wear from the springs rubbing against each other. Much cheaper than new springs.

    Re: 4\" lift suppliers and prices

    Just as a reference, I pick up my 6" lifted from 4wheel Parts for a little under $400...I got teh "Genuine Suspenmsion" kit which is actually ALL ProComp stuff...I got the springs, rear blocks, all the hardware and 4 eliminator (read:crappy) shocks...but for he price it will work until I do the shackle flip and lifts springs out back...I also picked up som ProComp stainless steel extended brake lines and a raised steering arm while I was at it...So all in all, the lift, brake lines, and steering arm were like $520 or so...

    Best of luck...

    well, i went 4 the pricey option of new spirngs, cuz i despise blocks, they dont look that good, and a 4" thick block, is EXACTLY 4", the new front springs might be 5.5" like mine were. so i played safe, and went w/ all new so theyd be closer.

    I also want to do new springs all the way around the re arches Ive heard always sag again any way and the rough country kit seems really affordable since I dont wat to do the twin shocks all the way around I should be able to do it much cheaper than K20 at lest I hope so because I want to get tires lift and all done for under 1200 I just hopr there isnt something I dont know about the less expensive kit that will haunt me later.
