    Now I just have to set up my shocks, brake lines, steering arm, change my rag joint seal, bolt the driveshaft back up, tighten everything down, and I'll be good to go :D

    100% better, now get some 10" rims and those tires will fill out the wheel wells a little better

    4" front Rough country springs with 1" zero rates... rear echobit flip (5.5" of lift)...

    when I actually measured it, the front gained 7" over the stock saggy springs :eek1:

    Looks good!

    For brake lines, are you going braided stainless steal or just extending the hard lines?

    27" up front, 26" out back. That's from center axle to bottom of fender lip. Keep in mind burbs are cut lowers in the back, so it doesn't actually have a saggy butt, you have to look along the bottom of the body line under the doors, its actually level. Now if I ever get a Dana 60 up front, that will make the front sit another inch higher, then I would have to get a zero rate out back.

    Also, the passenger front sits 27 3/4"!! the same side sat higher before the lift... I thought it was unequal spring wear... maybe a bent frame :crazy: oh well, I'm gonna drive it lilke I stole it, its all good :D

    i wouldn't go any wider than 8", other wise you start looking like one of those lowered mexican cars with wider rims than tires.
