    Can Anyone Suggest A 6" Lift With Springs All Around That Doesnt Require Alot Of Modifications And Rides Good? This Is Still My Daily Driver. I Would Rather Not Have To Sell A Kidney To Afford It If Possible But I Love My Jimmy So Nothing Is Out Of The Question!!lol! 77 Jimmy 350/350 D44/12b At/203

    Well I have 6" Rough Country's up front and 5.5 SkyJackers in the back, and they ride incredibly harsh. So don't get them. Rough Country will be the cheapest, yet roughest riding.

    I have a 6 inch superlift with dual rancho shocks on all four and sometimes it feels like i have no suspension..... soon as i let some air out of the 35's she rides like a caddy. Has dual steering stabilizers and i wouldn't mob without em now. changes the whole feel when your mobbin. all straight axle k5 are gonna ride stiff. Make sure you reinforce the steering box with a brace or weld it up when you lift it. check driveshaft angle too. Had to get mine retubed and had to buy a new yoke. 200 bucks.

    i had a tuff country on the truck when i bought it i switch it out with a superlift softride or easyride or what ever they call it it was a world of difference i also switch out the gabriel shocks for superlifts and superlift dual sterring stabilizers and i still cant beleive how good it rides i think that was the best thing ive done yet was switch everything out to superlift IMO the best but i havent tried all brand but between me and some of the guys around here ive driven or rode on a few different one and i believe superlift is the way to go

    I suggest BDS also. I have Tuff Country's in my truck right now. I have the TC 4" HD's in the front and I don't like them. They don't ride very well. Everyone is going to say "ya, because they are the HD's" but I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 180-200's of winch and bumper on the front of my truck to make up for that.

    The rears are 6" TC's that I removed a leaf from. They equal out to around 3.5-4" lift when you take out the bottom leaf. The are actually pretty soft riding but I am pretty sure they are going to start sagging pretty fast. I have only had them in for 2 weeks, so we will find out.
