    Well, I got my new 35x12.50 ProComp XTerrain tires...but they are a little big for my 4" lift... and I don't wanna trim any soo, time for a 6" lift...I am kinda tight on cash now so I was looking at a 6" lift from 4wheelparts to get me by until I can do the shackle flip & 2.5" rear spings and rancho 9000's. How are the front springs in the Genuine suspension kit from 4wpw? will they suffice? thanks for any input...Thre main reason I want to go with this kit is because it has all the major parts I will need to get by until I can upgrade the rear...

    I work at 4wpw and we dont even sell those springs, i think its only mail order. The procomp springs arent too expensive though. I have the 6'' springs on the front, havent had any problems with them.

    As far as I know the genuine suspension kit is basically a Pro-Comp spring with cheap shocks. I had the guy at the 4WPW store in Gardena look up the part number from the genuine susp. springs and the Pro-Comp spring and they were the same number.
