    Best 6-8\" Lift kit?

    Everyone,

    I want to lift my 72 K5 6-8". Who makes the best kit? I would like to stay away from rear blocks if possible. Anyone know what size tires I can fit with an 8" lift? What about a 6" lift?

    Thanks,
    David R.

    I got a 8" Super Lift and it rides a bit ruff. I hear the rancho & ruff country have a better ride, Some one here could add more imput on this. I also have a 4" rancho and it seemed a bit spongee to me so I added a 2 1/2" add-a-leaf to it.
    With the 8" lift and a 3" body Im clearing my 40's with no problems so far but I havent flex it to the max yet.

    If you cant go over it...GO THROUGH IT !!! <a target="_blank" href=http://www.CaliforniaK5Krawlers.com>www.CaliforniaK5Krawlers.com</a>

    Howdy,

    Did you go with rear blocks or springs?

    Have you heard anything about the 8" SkyJacker?

    Thanks,
    David
