    Hey guys. I am fairly new here, but have had my 1989 Full size jimmy since it was new. Just put on all new Rancho 9000 shocks this weekend, and the wife (God bless her) has agreed to let me get a lift for it. I can only go about 2.5 inches though, due to the height of my garage doors. I have to park inside due to the very cold winters here. Anyone have a good reference for me on what to look for in a lift, and who makes the best one? Any help would be sweet. Thanks.

    I have used Superlift for many years and have been extremely happy! I would look into their Superride springs if I were you!

    Also I hear BDS makes a good springs also..

    BTW have you checked into those new shocks you bought and found out if they will work with a 2.5" lift???? THat will be sad if you have to buy new shocks!

    Thanks for the info, and yes I had a friend that made that mistake with his new shocks so I learned from him. I told the guys at Central 4WD that I was looking at a 2.5 inch lift soon, and I wanted the correct RS9000's so I would not have to change them out. Thanks for checking though. Have a great day. Oh yeah, how do I get rid of the (stranger) underneath my name?

    Time, my son, time. The more you hang out here the higher your rank gets. And believe me, you'll spend a good amount of time checking out the site. I know there's a lot of us that are hooked on this forum. I think heroin is easier to kick.[​IMG]

    To get rid of that stranger thing you have too go outside during a full moon at midnight with nothing on EXPECT a very well placed chevy bowtie[​IMG]and the timing chain from a 350 engine around your neck,take the front bumper off your blazer(the bigger and heavier the bumper is the better)point it at the north star and chant MAY THE K5 GODS GRANT ME THE TITLE OF(insert wanted title here)5 times or until your title changes the gods sometimes take a while to deside if you are worthy,but you'll know when you're worthy[​IMG]

    Sidenote this post is just for fun and you should know that I am compleately nuts and should not be trusted[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hell, and I am thinking that if I get my wife to take the bumper off of her Suburban and do this with me, I will have veteran status real soon on this board. The neighbors might think we are weird (standing out front naked with bumpers and all). Oh well, K5's are worth it. Oh yeah, the guy with this suggestion is the guy who makes the animated gifs too. Maybe you could make an animated gif of this ritual. Talk to you later.

    That's tooooo funny, I didn't even notice that there is an ADDICT status. What's after that "Veteran Junkie"?[​IMG]
