    i am getting ready to put in a some ord zero rates in the front of my k5 with stock steering. it has 4" rancho springs on it with long enough brake lines but is there any other things i need to look out for with the extra inch? will all my steering components clear eveything? i have to be able to do this without getting into other problems because this is my only rig and i need to go to school everyday.

    Stabilizer? you meen swaybar right? Anyway you got a 5 inch lift now so all that cheapy get out of jail free stuff is history. What do I meen, you say? Well extended break lines and stearing correction must now be installed. If you are dead set on not rolling like a boat through corners you will need that handy dandy sway bar disconnect/correction kit our mentor Steve at ORD sells. Oh and dont forget longer u-bolts, and if you got a dana 60, longer bolts or studs for the passenger side spring perches. Those zero rates rule! Enjoy the extra clearence!!!
