    I've noticed alot of threads about lifts lately. So I thought I'd give everyone a chance to voice thier OPINION on who makes the best riding lift. Sence 4" and 6" are the more comman, lets try to keep this thread to just the 4" and 6" suspension lifts. So that said, What lift will give the best ride ???

    You should get out and explore the world more. Custom spring maker, mostly race stuff, though they do rockcrawling stuff also.

    I just started this thread becouse of alot of lift questions lately. I'm very happy with the lift I have in the front of my truck. Do want to get rid of the blocks in the rear, but that's just couse I'm not a fan of blocks at all. In all honesty, I'm thinking 4" shackel flip, with TC 3" lift rear springs. I like the rear slightly higher then the front. I think 6" up front with 7" out back will work for me. Now I just need some money for parts.

    I'm with you on the blocks. I'd like to ditch mine, along with the 10-spring rear pack. I run Skyjacker 6" fronts with their Nitro shocks, and am very happy with the ride. Softest 6" spring that I have run, but I have yet to try TC or BDS.

    I am very satisfied with my 6'' TC ez-rides up front, they ride quite nice and flex very well /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif, BUT... since more is better I will be swapping 52'' rear springs into the front end within the next week or two for what I hope to be an even smoother and flexier ride . As for the rear I was running stock leaves with shackle flip for about a year and thought that was the best it could get for ride quality, BUT... since more is better I opted to swap in an extra 5'' of spring (57''s) and use a longer shackle . I had no idea that a solid axle could ride so smooth! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
