    You can get a full rough country 4" or under 500 I think, and they flex great.

    Hijack...

    If I get a 6 inch Tough Country Spring kit all around, and do a Spring Under setup, how much total lift would I have?? or would it be a total waste to do a spring under setup on a 1/2 axle?

    Just to say I have one. =)

    I don't know really... now that I think of it... if the u-bolt broke, I would have the entire weight of the engine come crashing down on the diff... if I have over springs, at least the front axle has tome to get out of the way before the engine comes crashing down. =)

    Nothing from ORD is cheap.

    You can run 4" front springs with a shackle flip in the back to achieve 4" lift the cheapest (other then blocks). If you want lift springs all the way around it will be the most costly way to go but one of the best routes to go.

    You can get a shackle flip for the rear from Sky. www.sky-manufacturing.com

    If you are dead set on all springs make sure you are comparing the prices to your door. Some places have a lower retail price but are more in the long run due to shipping.

    why would you even want to say you have one? spring over is much better, more ground clearance.
