    Hey Tim! Have you priced thru the shop that gives deals to the Suncoast guys yet? Mail order seems to give the best prices, but I dont know how much shipping would be. The guy up the road from me whose white Blazer you seen, got everything except his tires mail order.

    Spend the cash for a Skyjacker kit. It is worth it. Mine has been absolutely great, it rides better than the old worn out stock suspension, and handles better too, even though I removed the sway bar.

    I large portion of this is the shocks, but if the springs weren't worth their salt, I don't think the shocks would make so much difference. [​IMG]

    Still Poundin' "pavment" after all these years!!! [​IMG]

    For the cheapest, best lift go with rough country. I like mine but it's hard on the back in town. Works great when your pounding down into a ditch! Thinking that I might just disconnect the sway bar up front to get some extra spring!

    What are your plans for the truck? Trail only or daily driver as well? You want flex for rocks and trails or stiffer for mud? I personally Like Skyjacker softyrides for semi-stiff... and BDS for semi-flexy... neither is the stiffest or fllexyest. Also Superlift superrides are nice. I have BDS right now and love them to death... excellent... they might sag a tich compared to the super stiff ones, but way better then other soft springs IMO.
