    Need additional items with 4\" lift??

    Just wondering. My, new to me, 80 K5 is completely stock and one of the first mods I'd like to do is a 4" lift. I see most kits come with shocks. Besides that, any other recommendations to change?

    For tonnes on info try doing a search as this topic has probably been covered hundreds of times. You likely wont need anything else though.

    Longer steering arm guaranteed. It's not optional as they sometimes say. Get the steering box frame brace from ORD.

    The lift kit I got from sierra off road came with the raised steering arm.

    I personally think you should do extended brake lines unless you aren't gonna wheel. Look into a shackle flip or something so you don't have to run blocks.
