    I am going to do a lift kit once and only once in my life time so I want the best all around spring/shock combo for my 1986 CUCV Blazer. I would also would like to have the best brakehoses that will drop in the factory slots without addin on goffy extensions to make the all spring kit work I want to retain my stock e brake cables and will I need to lengthen my rear drive shaft of run a cv type rear shaft. I am going to D.D. my truck alot. Also has anyone bought/installed Bilstien shocks for their truck with a lift kit? Had BDS in mind for the springs, where is the best place to buy them. Would like to know what everyone else went though to get the "best" they could. Thanks, Klink /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Ditto,
    you asked for the best and this is it as far as off the shelf is concerned. Anything better would be custom.

    BDS is quality, and has the lifetime warrenty. Tuff Country also makes a quality spring. ORD makes a nice 4" Shackle flip for the rear.

    Bilsteins are so much better than Rancho the two should not even be compared.

    Bilsteins are monotube, Ranchos are twin tubes and IMO no better than a Gabrial or Monroe you can get from the parts store.
