    Most people on here are going to tell you BDS or Tough Country. I have the BDS six inch lift. I have not been able to wheel it since I put it on. But everything fit nice, seems like a good quality kit. I went BDS for the warrenty and I could not find a Tough Country dealer up here.

    I had tuff country lifts on 2 70s, 4" and 6" both rode well. I've had rough country and rugged trail and they lived up to their name.

    As stated above,most will say T/C or BDS. I'm happy with Superlift,the price was right,still need to get rid of the rear blocks and put on a shackle flip.I won't buy Rancho,I broke a main spring a few years ago on another rig,what fun that was.:doah:

    I am also going to say BDS or Tough Country if you are looking for a standard aftermarket lift. I personally consider BDS to be the best followed by TC.

    I have TC all around on my truck and a good friend has BDS on his frontend. Both of us run 4" lift front springs. I have 1 bent TC mainleaf. He has 0 bent BDS mainleaves. We wheeled together on the same trails all the time and his trucks front springs always seemed to do better then mine. Not a huge difference in performance but his are a little softer and he has not bent a mainleaf yet.

    If I was going to spend money on standard aftermarket springs I would buy BDS.

    Surprised no one said TC springs up front with 2.5 in. TC springs in the back with a shackle flip... I was lookin at BDS... seems a little steep price wise..

    I did skyjacker springs on the rear of my k5 (6", had stockers and blocks). They ride great on the highway and flex like crazy on the trail. No complaints here.
