    I DO NOT WANT A BODY LIFT. i hate the way it looks on a truck, at least one with a relatively small lift.

    i am looking for a kit that will include all parts includeing washers and bolts, as most of mine will be killed in the removeal.

    the bushings and stuff in the ORD kit are Daystar...might want to do a search and see if they sell a complete mount and hardware kit without the 1" aluminum pucks.

    As an aside a 1" body lift is hardly detectable, it's what I have and I also hate body lifts. I certainly wouldn't go more than 1" though.

    Either way...

    sorry bud your right i say it says popular with the 1" kit i thought it was the one inch lift, still want all of the stuff ill need though.


    and rena, with a one inch lift do you still have to extend much or can you just strech them? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Rene.

    You can't really tell until you hook it up. it can be different with diffrent vehicles. You may want to adjust somethings to be on the safe side.

    LMC has them in their truck catalog (cup, spacer, washer,bolt, cushion) but you probably want them for your sub don't you. Maybe someone here will have an LMC catalog for subs or you can call them at (800)562-8782.

    My clutch linkage was able to be adjusted to suit, the steering column was just fine, the filler neck was OK too...the only thing I almost missed was the bottom of the fan shroud. It needed minor trimming.

    I had no real trouble or issues, and the poly mounts sure did firm up the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    well my shroud is pre-trimed thanks to the bounceing front end /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
