    Available 2.5\" lifts/budget llifts?

    Just curious, what 2.5" lift kits are available out there? The only one I have seen is Superlift.


    Are there any ways to get 2-3" of lift on a budget? What works best?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    hello!
    I was thinking about the same thing. either a 2" lift or just going back stock.
    have you thought about the zero rates? get 1" of lift on a bodget.
    just an idea...

    I think Tuff country sells that type of lift. The cheapest way to lift 2" would be add-a-leafs but I dont think that is the best way. You are looking at some front springs and some 2" rear blocks. You could go 4" front springs and do a home made shackle reverse in the rear. That might be the cheapest.

    Yep. I bought 4" front springs, steering arm, and shocks off of someone here for $150, and did the homebrew flip in the rear. Tuff Country does have 2.5 EZ Rides, and ORD has them on sale RIGHT NOW!!! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
