    6\" lift kits for 97 chevy

    I need some help picking out a 6" lift for my 97 z71, i have been looking into a bunch of different lifts, everyone always gives me a different story. If anyone has a lift or knows about them drop me a line and let me know what you think about them? All info helps!

    put a solid front end under it. You will be money ahead.
    Just my .02 cents

    We've sold a couple of the Tuff Country IFS lifts that seemed to work out pretty well. They're converting everything over to a replacement spindle and a 1 piece subframe so you end up with way fewer parts overall and cut the install time down a bunch. They should be pretty durable. We've seen one problem with an upper a-arm relocation bracket but the truck was beat pretty hard to tear it up. I don't have any experience with the other lifts but I know everybody is going to the same type design, raised spindles/knuckles with a solid subframe.
    Overall if you're going to use the truck hard a solid axle will serve you well. If it's moderate, occasional use, an IFS lift will leave you with nicer (debatable) driving characteristics and a little less work up front.
