    I own a 89 K5, and I'm lookin for some input as to what brand/type of lift I oughta get for about 500-600 bucks. Right now, it's probobly gonna be a rear shackle flip and front springs. I'm definitly not gettin blocks. Also, if anybody out there has a similar truck (year/model) and knows of a good site or place to buy parts from, I'd appreciate it.

    the ORD shackle flip and tuff country front lift are what I've been lookin at. I ain't got the tools or the knowledge to install a shackle flip though. How much is installation gonna cost me?

    <font color="green"> Here's a new shackle flip that should be a lot easier to install, but I'm not convinced that it is going to be the strongest way to go. Doesen't look obviously weak, but it does seem a little goofy. Just another option that won't require as much work as an ORD flip. </font color>
