    I ordered a new Rough Country stabilizer and a four new Skyjacker shocks for 0-1.5" lift. I have no lift on my K5, I am just going to leave it the way it sits now. Mabe lift it in the future when I have time to do a gear swap, mabe even an axle swap. I have 3.08 gears, so that would suck with 33's or 35's.

    The stabilzer is the original one and it's blown to hell. The Monroe shocks I see on the front are blown, because they are leaking everywhere and it bounces like a caddy in the front:)

    Shocks and stabilizer should tighten up the ride a bit. New 31x11.5 15 Swamper LTBs are coming next week. I will mount them on the stock 15x8 rally wheels.

    I was thinking of replacing the front manual hublocks with some new Warn or Superwinch ones. I am very mechanically inclined, but have never replaced hublocks before. They easy to install? Looks like you can almost do them without taking off the wheels, but I highly doubt it. I am almost sure the whole hub assembly has to come off. What do you guys think?
