    burban 6\" lift question

    I've got a 88 3/4 burb with a three inch lift and want to go to a 6 inch. What will be required to do that besides the kit, what kit should I go with and what extra stuff will I need to lengthen or adjust to do this? Any help is appreciated!

    What kinda 3" kit is in place now?
    What kinda use do you want out of the burb?

    Things to check for are:
    drivelines
    brakelines
    shocks
    steering
    exhaust clearence

    depending on what you currently have on there you can just get an ala cart lift,LOL as in one brands front leafs, an ord rear flip, a different company's shocks....

    You could put a 3" bodylift on your existing 3" suspension. That will get you 6" without screwing around with all your drivelines and brakelines.
