    I dont know of any offroad parts stores off hand, closest ones would be Seattle or Portland that I know of. But it wouldn't hurt to check the online yellow pages to double check.

    Might also consider Tuff Country, which has the advertised lowest spring rates, and is sold by Stephen Watson of www.offroaddesign.com - great guy and great customer service. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I bought my 6 superlift from 4wheel parts and have never had a problem with it. I would by another one without hesitation but thats just my 2 cents.

    yeppers.. the cool thing about the 52" spring swap up front is that other than labor, its pretty much free if you can score some old springs. Don't get much better than that. Of course, you need x-over steering and some other stuff... but its all good. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Sounds like more work than I'm equiped for,last 4x I had was 3/4 ton w/44-ff14, now I'll be swapping in D60/ff14 into a k5, all taking place in a gravel driveway...Let the fun begin.But I'll keep it in mind for future projects.By the way,how big is your garage? /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
