    I am planing to get a six inch lift this week end and i do not know what brand i should go for. I want to get front and rear springs that are soft and have felx for week end off-roading. It would also be nice to know where to get them and what i should get for the stearing. Thanks a lot for any help.

    I prefer Superlift. I have 8" front & rear and they don't ride
    bad at all. Superlift also stands behind there springs, I ran Skyjacker in the past on my Toyota and was going to by the same and a local shop in N.O. LA didn't recommend them because they don't stand behind there products without a hastle. I've had good luck buying from 4wheelparts, if you let them know you are going to buy now and you are not just pricing it seems to help. Steering they will recommend what you need but I think just a 4" steering arm is all that's necessary. I buy lots of parts and I buy from one guy at 4wheelparts "Mingo-x5705" he hooks me up! Oh! Save money and buy the Genuine Suspension setup it's actually Superlift, that's what I have and the springs have superlift stickers and part numbers.
