    That's because it is. Look at the pictures, in addition to whatever springs those are he has a shackle flip in the back, dropped front spring mounts and really long shackles. It's definitely way more than 8in.

    BigBadChev84: Did your front driveshaft bind at all with that much lift? U running a cv i guess?

    superlift softride 6" plus 1" zero rate up front... (front leafs sag to 5" even when they were new????)
    not sure of the rear height... Supposedly I had a guy put 12" all the way around back in 1997 but they dont look like 12's......




    why are you coming back down?
    I would love to go higher... I had 12" leafs on all corners plus a 3" body lift..... :bow:

    However I do realize now.... I barely fit in the trails.. no problems with length or width... height.. I smack the kc's on branches (at least they are broke anyway) and I sometimes hit branches on my windshield..... :doah:

    Nope, I used 4.5" poly bumpstops and a boxed 2" peice of square tubing.

    At full stuff, the front springs invert, even with the bumpstops...
