    ok so i figured that i want to do a 4 inch shackle flip on the rear of my truck (89 jimmy) but what about the front. someone suggested new leafs in the front. would that be the correct way to do it and where would i find new lift leafs for the front? i know i would need longer shocks but what else would be needed, maybe longer brake lines? i am lost on this so if someone could please help me. christmas is coming up so i am trying to get some ideas to make a short list :D thanxs yall.

    I would ask some of the venders on the board here.

    You should check with them about using some lift blocks. Thats a good cheap way to go.

    if you are talking about on the front i would not do that unless it is just a trailer truck blocks up front is very unsafe.

    Ok is this much better?? I'm sorry I don't type with proper english at all times. If you really want me to write you a paper in the MLA format I will. Also the search, that I have been using, only picks up keywords as stated.

    I think he's talking about the Google-search.
    Regular search is still not available to non-members.
