    What is the best, inexpensive way, to raise the front of an 89 3/4 ton Suburban.

    I read about putting 52's and 56's, but that also requires moving hangers, welding... How hard or easy is that anyway? A one day job? Are there lift springs 47's?

    "Inexpensive Lift" and "52's & 56's" don't belong in the same post :)

    I've seen 4" lifts for a copule hundred bucks that use the stock length springs & stock hangers, but the quality is piss poor and the ride becomes as stiff as a board.

    Your best bet is to drop the extra coin for a quality lift like Tuff Country or BDS

    My 4" Skyjacker kit with shocks was $400 online. Rides pretty good. No matter what, when you lift a truck, it's going to ride rougher than stock.

    Look at the superlift store on eBay. Some really good deals on stuff if you know exactly what you want/need.
