    going from 4\" to 6\" suspension

    wat else am i gonna have to change? ive got 8" lines, a raised steering arm, my front shaft needs to be rebuilt any way.

    im planning on going to 6" front springs and an echobit flip out back. and maybe some zero rates up front, i like the saggy butt look.

    I have 6" with the stock front shaft (barely holdin on) and I put the brake lines below the frame with the stock hoses. I have the 4" arm and it worked ok the 3 weeks I drove it last summer.

    Is your swaybar setup still stock? When I put my 6 inch springs on front there was a inch of so gap between the bushings and the frame.
