    Looks GREAT!

    I'm also curious about what lift options you went with - I wasnt able to find any 6" Heavy Duty springs for 69-87/91Sub on Tuff Country's website - just the EZ Rides.

    Tuff Country 69-87 Suspension Page

    I am also considering the 6" all-spring lift from Tuff Country but havent been able to get a clear answer as to how the 6" EZ Rides compare to the stock GM 3/4T spring pack as far as durability, toughness and load rating.

    I wonder if you could let us know what offset you get out of the rims you are running plus the offset gotten from your spacers. Also, I wonder where you got your kit and how much you did yourself.

    I've only been able to find Tuff Country (locally) at Les Schwaab Tires but they didnt want to just sell me a lift system and certainly wanted to put it on for me. I would be happy to pay them a reasonable amount to 'check' my work for Tuff Country's warranty purposes, but I could sure use the $$$ installation would cost to get better rims/rubber.

    you can post your questions in the ORD forum since that is where Frank bought it through, plus Stephen can answer your questions.
