    National tire and wheel has an 8" superlift for $400 with blocks it comes with shocks and u-bolts Do a shackle flip in the rear with a zero rate and a 2-3 inch block They also have the rear springs for $409 I have the kit with the springs in the rear I would like to do a shackle flip soon no welding is requred but you need to lower the t-case an inch and get new drive lines made plus you'll have to buy the steering corrections sepperetly steering arm is 52.95 and the steering arm block is 42.95 from NTW you will also need longer brake lines there 34.95 a piece from ntw /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
