    Well, just got my k5, and I'm setting new records in the broke department because of it. However, the idiot that had it before me stuffed 33's under with no lift and saggy springs, and I am just tearing the crap out of them, I need a lift, bad.

    So, what is the cheapest I can get a 4" lift? First, cheapest brand, and then the cheapest place to get get them from, I need the complete kit, shocks, steering arm, etc.

    How bad are the really cheap lifts?

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.ntwonline.com>National Tire and Wheel</a> Has a GM 4" for $299.99 with rear blocks and includes shocks. The steering arm is extra and that is about $52 from them also.
    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.roughcountry.com>Rough Country</a> has their 4" lift with shocks and steering arm for $295

    In the back of the latest issue of Four Wheeler there is a place called Suspension Discounters, they are an off road accessory liquidator. They list their 4" with shocks for $299.99 and the steering arm is $50 from them( 1-888-459-4979)

    Order a rough country lift from rough country. And if your springs are that worn out, you may wish to order a rough country kit that includes new rear springs instaed of blocks, it will run you around 600 after shipping, thats what I did. Its a great deal for new springs all the way around. But, with your tight budget, you will probably want to stick with blocks in the rear. Anyways, Rough Country is the people to deal with for cheap lifts. I am verry happy with mine.
