    RC has a 4" lift for $309 which really tickles my pickle.

    You guys know of anywhere I can order this or similar priced lifts with free or cheap shipping online?

    Probably front springs, rear blocks, front & rear u-bolts, thats it. My guess though.

    And maybe, just maybe, the raised steering arm.

    That stuff is HEAVY! I'd be amazed if anyone offers free shipping on that. The whole kit weighs over 100 pounds.

    Summit offers free shipping - but I believe they only carry Skyjacker, Superlift, & Rancho - might be wrong though - haven't looked at a catalog in awhile

    I got both my Superlift kit for my 75 K20 I used to have and my current 8" front skyjacker front springs with price match from Rocky Mountain Suspension and free shipping from Summit. I would definitely give them a call...

    Thats really not a great price. You can get much nicer springs than rc (tuff country, bds) for pretty cheap. Rear blocks dont cost much either. You could have nicer front springs, with the same rear block setup for just a tiny bit more.

    To answer your question, jegs and summit are the only people I know of to offer free shipping a lot. I dont know if either of them carries rc though.

    Summit used to charge extra "handling charges" for really heavy items. Has that changed?

    For that kind of $$, you can probably get much better springs, maybe a shackle flip and an arm. Read up here before you spend any $$, have a clear plan and watch the classifieds both here and on Pirate. I made the mistake of jumping on a cheap kit and regretted it.

    Just back from summit. Yes, they have free shipping. But, $11 handling charge and a $12 extra charge for items over 150lbs. I was looking at the 2.5" procomp kit with shocks, it was 420 plus above fees.

    RC Lifts

    I just ordered a complete 4 inch package direct from the factory last week. $500 got me all 4 springs, steering arm, new steering damper, drop brackets for the front sway bar etc, including shipping. Not sure the $309 with blocks is all that great of a deal...

    So who wants to come help me put these on?:D

    ORD has good prices on this stuff. I just got Tuff Country front springs (6"), zero rate, and all u-bolts for $389 (and that included shipping). I Also got DIY4x shackle flip and X-tied shackles for $200 shipped to AK. Don't forget new shocks - those will run you $30 and up. I got Skyjacker gas-charged ($180 shipped). If you keep your eyes open you can find buy 3 get on free deals on shocks. Just remember that quality costs $$$ but there are still good deals out there, you just have to do some work to find them. Good Luck!
