    I've got a 90' K-5 all stock. I want to lift it 4". My rear springs sag like many K-5's. What is the best lift kit for the money? I'm running 33x12.5's. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I'm a fan of ORD, they carry Tuff Country. Great products and service. But BDS are nice riding springs also. I'm all about the ride quality.

    Rough Country offers a very nice affordable 4" lift kit usually including shocks. I have no complaints on ride and flex is good on the trail.

    The best lift kit is not a lift kit at all. The best lift for me is not the best for you. What is good for you is based on your use and your budget.

    [/ QUOTE ] You'd be one of the few that didn't have a complaint then, LOL.

    Go with BDS.. I love mine and they are very good on the street. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    But I'd go with 4" in front and 6" in rear. My butt is sagging.

    I went Tuff Country, 3inch front 4inch rear. Very happy with ride and flex, pretty cheap too. I run 33's too, soon to be 35s?
