    OK I know have 4" rough contry lift springs and they ride HARD!!!!
    I was thinking of eaither (sp?) getting new softer lift springs or seeing if i can remove some leafs from the curent pack. What do you guys recomend?
    This is my DD/Trail rig (specs in sig) .

    I was thinking BDS lifts springs all around, or lift springs up front and 2" springs out back with a 2" shackle flip. Or just find away to make these rough contry ride better.

    HELP PLZ.

    Thanx in advance!!!!!

    isnt BDS the really expensive route? have you looked up tuff country, ive heard theyre a good alternate. also i think for only 4 inches, shackle flip and new springs is a double expenditure, use your stocker and 4 inch flip. that is what i would do

    I have some 6" alcans for sale... Super flexy and really nice ride... A little higher than you were looking to go but a 4" flip andsome springs in the rear would be a sweet way to go...

    Much better as far as ride/ quality than a off the shelf spring for about the same price...

    Sry that i didnt state that I ALREADY have a 4" lift on my truck no blocks just springs all around.


    So some EZ rides would be good huh Glenn? For the 52" would that bolt in to my truck or would i have to relocate anything?
