    Custom springs all around on Yunit's. Not sure what lift really. Think somewhere between 4 and 6".

    If you want to wait a couple of weeks, I'll have some pics up. 6" TC springs, 42s. One day I'll coilover and link it... When I win the lottery:grin:

    I have 6" with 37's I think I could go to 42's with not much more cutting the body. But a lot of people here say to move hte ft axle forward a little maybe
    some one will chime in on this to help you out.

    I had to move my front axle forward 1.5" to keep it out of the firewall.

    Blk87K5, what springs did you have (store bought or custom)? Is that 6" of total lift or is there any body lift? TIA!

    Edit: Any more pics posted anywhere?

    Rears are 2.5" lift and meant to be used with the ORD shackle flip, diff location 1.5" back from stock 10 leaf pack.

    They're sitting in my front hall closet right now...:crazy:
