    I´m thinking of rising my -89 k5 with a 4" lift kit and 33" tires,
    What kit is the best for the best price? where can I get it?
    Do I need to change the shocks?
    How will it be to ride? am I going to be more seasick?
    I live in Sweden and not to many K5 owners here, please give me some advice...

    national spring or ORD (Off Road Design) can set you up with a nice kit, You really should either do springs in the rear or if you can afford it and are doing a 4"lift do an ORD shackle reversal at the same time. You definetely need to do shocks at the same time as the lift.
    Usually a good lift, especially one that allows you to use the stock rear springs, Shackle reversal, or blocks, will actually make the ride better than stock.
    Not sure what you'll be facing on shipping charges and I am not sure what lift kits cost as mine came with a 2.5" lift- perfect on mine for 33" tires.

    Hey Tamme!
    I'm from Norway and here a kit with blocks in the rear, including the dropped steeringarm and shocks is around 11-13 000 Nkr from www.bgnor.no. I found that importing it from the states will run $350 for the kit, and another $400 for shipping and tax. Not recomendable with the dollar being as high as it is now.
    For another of your countrymen go here http://hem.passagen.se/znus/ maybe he can help you with whats available in Sweden. His name is Andreas and he's on here regulary.

    Espen.
