    this may help a little.... 4WParts quoted me $1,465 (including labor) for a 4" superlift with rear springs. The rear springs are about $190 a piece. You can also do an add-a-leaf and a small black to cut off a good bit of the cost.

    You can get a 6" superlift kit with front and rear springs, shocks and hardware from National Tire and Wheel for around $550.00

    Ross, Unless you are dead set on Superlift, avoid those 6 inch springs, they are hard as bricks and don't off much flex. I have a pair of four inch I swamped from my a sub I bought to my k5, and they have about no flex. I would suggest Rough Country four inch and cut away sheet metal for the rest of your clearance issues. Right now I am running four inch superlifts, bottom leaf removed, and am clearing 35s with a good amount of sheet metal cut. Just my 2 cents worth. Hope all goes well.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    When you say that the springs are as hard as bricks did you have the superlift HDs or the superrides because the super or soft rides should have more felx.

    General, I have a question, are you clearing 35"s with sheet metal cut away for flex. Did you cut the sheet metal for flex or just to fit 35"s. Because with my 4" lift, i have 35" Dunlop Mud Rovers and there is plenty of room.
