    Stock 52" rear springs in the front and homebrew shackle flip in the rear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Cheapest way to get 4" lift if you already planned on crossover.

    I have a 4" set of front springs with the steering correction needed, if you just want to lift it a set of 4" blocks, plus that would be your cheapest route, you will still need longer shocks and brake lines.

    Well, good thing you are on this site then /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Homebrew shackle flip Total Cost $0 plus some time.

    You can get close to 4" lift in the rear with that setup.

    For the front you can go with 4" springs (factory length) to make things easy or do a search in the garage for sandman's posts about 52" springs.

    Re: Complete 4\'\' inch Lift

    I have a 4" Rancho lift with blocks and Rancho 5000 shocks (Used but good). It has been my experience that 4" does not require steering correction or longer brake lines (Just route your stock brake lines under the frame rail for the extra clearance you'll need). I took the leaves all apart and sand blasted and painted them. They will need new bushings and clamps (25 bucks or so for stock).
    Pricetag is $200/obo plus ride.

    Yah if you dont know what you're doing, a complete kit would be a better option. Probably cheaper in the long run too...
