    Who makes all spring 6\" lift kits?

    Been shopping for a replacement for the unknown kit I have now. I want to change the rear over to 6" springs and eliminate the blocks if possible. I've checked the web sites of BDS, Tuff Country, Rancho, Skyjacker, OME, Hellwig, and a bunch of others I can't recall and they all use 4" blocks wtih add a leaves on the rear.

    Skyjacker, Superlift, Rough Country, Tuff Country all make systems/rear springs... Not sure if BDS does.

    Almost all companies make rear springs but don't list them in there catalog. You can call them or E-Mail them and ask about rear springs. Just curious what company were you looking into for your lift?

    No one in particular. I see the prices are pretty much the same. In particular, I'm looking for something with soft street manners as the truck will see more street than off road, but I would like it to be off road capable should I venture. I prefer a kit without shocks as I have the future desire to upgrade to RS9000's with cab control.
