    Does this look like a good deal? 1" body lift bucks for 2 bucks a piece. My burb needs 14 of them, right?

    I'm not shure how much I would have to invest in bolts, but I'm just wondering if this would be an economical way to go if I wanted to do a small body lift?

    They also have 2 and 3" pucks, but I'm thinking 1" will be the most trouble free.
    thanks,
    James

    That would work. It will cost about $15 for grade-8 hardware, but you can use grade-5 if you want, which is about half the cost of Grade-8 hardware.

    You could probably buy hockey pucks cheaper than $2 each, and they work well for a 1" body lift.

    Of course the guy at the sporting goods store is going to look at you funny when you want 14 pucks during the summer.

    Not that I would know anything about that..... ;)

    I'm going with the ORD or something like them at some point. More expensive, yes. But should never need replacing.

    Sears usually has the "name your own price" special on loose hardware. :)
