    Where is the best place to buy a lift system from these days? I hear bad things about this place and that place. So what's a good place?

    6" super lift superide preferably. 1 ton if it matters.

    I am the local shop. Just haven't set up an account to vend these yet. Maybe I should just get it done already.

    I bought most of my suspension from the Superlift scratch and dent store on E-Bay, and am really happy with it so far.

    This is for my crew cab daily driver. Load capacity is a factor and flex is of no real concern.

    Blazer suspension is pretty much finished with the exception of shock absorbers.

    On a seperate note I did the 2 x 3 rocker tube replacement on the crew cab. That's alot of welding. You would have enjoyed it.

    I did the exact same thing on surpips blazer. It is alot of welding...I imagine a crewcab would be... tedious.
