    My 4" rough country all spring with arm, and shocks was under $500. Wouldnt think 2 more inches would be that much more. Tho my 4" kit did lift my 81 Blazer a little over 5"... You can also go the shackle flip route for the rear. With maybe a Zero-Rate??

    And you will know it every time you hit a bump and those stiff a$$ springs don't give.

    Guess that's why they're called "rough country"

    BDS lifts are very well priced. And you can't beat a lifetime warranty with a stick.

    Bah!! Ive driven with Rough Country Springs for over 5 years. Besides they were one of the firsts, back in the '70s to do quality lift kits. I dont expect my 30+ year old truck to ride like a Cadilac, or any new car for that matter. But no there are not the smoothest riding lifts out there

    I've had my rough country 4" all spring on for about 2 years now. But I also haven't put too many miles on my k5 until this year. It definatley has broken in this year and has become a much better ride.

    I got mine at the superlift scratch and dent store on e-bay. I think I got a pretty good deal, and they work great.

    I just got a set of Skyjacker rear springs from www.jackit.com, and I like them. I have to do some more rear axle work before I hit the trail, but I will let you know how they do.
