    Next week should be the last week of her daily driven life.
    My new ride is a mid 80 Suburu 4 cylinder turbo 5 speed 4x4 sedan.
    $400, it just needs a new fuel tank. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    Kinda cool it even has a transfer case stick, no low or high just 4x4 or 2x4.
    Finaly the K5 can go down for many much needed repairs and alterations.
    As soon as I recover from the sh!t storm that I am going through it should progress rapidly.
    First on the list is dropping in the 468.
    Still haven't made up my mind about the lift, but it will be a low lift large tire combo.
    Disk brakes and a cv brake drive shaft.
    I'll run the 44 for now till I can score a couple of 60's.
    So many things to to so many choices, I sorta feel like a kid with a $5 bill in a candy store LOL

    SMall lift big tire? id say for the rear..... Shackle flip, 0 rate, Stock spring........ for the front 4 inch spring and a 0 rate (until you get the 60, then take the 0 rate out so itll sit level. I absolutley love my suspension now as i am running this same setup, Nothing fancy just simple. Beats the Sh!t outa the Superlift 8"s that i was running..... Slap some 39.5's on and your ready to rock

    Yea the 8" lift is gonna go on another rig I have my eye on.
    It will be a mud and sand machine so ride is not that important.
    I need new rear springs and have thinking obout the Ford spring pack and a shackle flip.
    4" lift and 39.5's are kinda the way I am leaning.
    Go with the 8" lift and some 44" Boggers on the other rig.
    Build the other 454 for top end power and take it boggin.
    **** it I have nothing better to spend my money on.
