    My only question is why go cheap and temporary?

    If your gonna do it.. you might as well do it the right way once and be done with it. well thats my thinking at least.

    Years ago I ran an add-a-leaf up front. That slight amount of additional height and getting the courage to start wrenching on your rig with minimal $$ expended is how you get started.

    With that experience and CK5, the rig building/wrenching begins.....

    I bought my 4" lift off of a member here a couple of years ago for $150. Included front springs, shocks (x4), and a steering arm. To me, that was cheap and permanent /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
