    Ok, if you were stuck buying from 4WheelParts (which I am) because you NEED a lift kit (CHEAP) by Friday, which kit would you get? If you have another suggestion, please let me know.

    My project has been sitting in a friends garage since Sept... He wants it out by 01/08/04. I have 3/4 ton stuff and 35in tires to put under it, I just need the lift. I go back to court on 26/07/04 because my bitch exwife keeps trying to regain custody of my daughter, so I cant work on it after this weekend. (hey, you asked /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

    Talk to ORD, they could probably get something to you fast.

    Yeah, thats a better idea. If you have to rush to get a cheapo lift that you will curse when you drive it, it's not worth buying. Just wait till you get the court problem sorted out, then you find the perfect spring for the wheeling you do.

    /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif Definitely not.

    I'd go with what rjfguitar said. Swap the axles in now, do the lift later.

    Fast shipping on something as heavy as a lift is going to be EXPENSIVE!!!!!!

    If I was trying to save money though, I certainly wouldn't be looking at Superlift or Skyjacker, they're VERY expensive compared to others, especially Skyjacker.

    Of that list, Skyjacker is the softest, followed by Superlift, Rancho, and Genuine Suspension/Explorer Pro Comp.

    Either way, if ya want to save money, just send me a PM and I'll tell you how, but regular ground freight is not going to get it there by this weekend.

    Find another place too store it till you can get the BDS or Tuff Country springs. Keep in mind, the ORD Shackle flip is nice too, may be alittle more work, but well worth it IMHO.
