    I need to put a lift kit on my wife's 76 K10. I'm going to put a D60/14Bff combo on it with high steer and 35 inch tires. I'm building it for work more than play. I'm looking for a 4" soft-ride type lift system with rear springs. So far the least expensive I've found on the internet is Davy's off road products on EBay. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    JC Whitney sells Tuff Country, jdsoffroad has BDS.

    If you want a soft ride, you want a shackle flip anyway, not rear springs.

    Decide what brand that you want first, then look for the lowest price. Comparing different brand is like comparing apples to oranges.

    Very true, my ride improved 100% over the 6" rear springs.

    Davy's offroad on ebay sells Rough Country and RC doesnt make a softride spring.

    I didnt know JCW sold tuff country /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif are their prices better than suspension connection?

    I don't know, what is suspension connection's website? Never heard of them.

    JC Whitney has a pretty good price on complete 6" kits, with the arm and all.

    I'd go quality over cheepest. Give the folks at ORD a call about putting together a complete lift kit using the 4" Shackle flip. I'm sure they can hook you up with everything you'll need. Make sure you tell them what axles you'll be installing. Clicky here and clicky there

    Off road designs stuff is really reasonable and has a members discount for CK5ers. They sell tuff country.

    get a shackle flip from ORD and front BDS springs from www.jdsoffroad.com... $90/ea. Good deal, good product, great warranty. dont get much better than that. If you want a steering arm for steering geo correction, just get one cheap from a ck5'er who is upgrading to x-over...
