    I just got an ak57 lift for the rear now Im gonna need the parts for the front. What do I need? I was thinking about putting those Scissor Shackle Complete Flip Kit from echobit but I dont know if you can put those on the front suspesion.

    yeah, no wacky shackles up front... you just need some good high quality 6" springs. Score some from ORD (tuff countrys) or JDs (BDS).

    depends, what steering correction devices are you currently using? if you can afford it, x-over would be best.. but if not there are drop pitmans, raised steering arms, and drop draglinks as well.
