    Anyone know of any online retailers that sell BDS lift kits for a K5's? If not anyone know how much the 6" kit with rear springs costs roughly? My local 4x4 shops either don't carry BDS or don't have them for a K5.

    I put a kit in my buddy's rig. Total cost for suspension, transfer case drop kit, shocks, s.s. brake line extensions, etc., etc., etc., and all necessary hardware was right at $1300. Not too bad considering I've about $700 invested in a 4" and i'm not very happy with it (man did I mess up). I'll be swapping out for a 6" BDS sometime this year.

    About $650 for a complete bolt in 4" kit. It's well worth it!

    There's no substitute for cubes and inches!
