    what do yall think of this combination of parts...if its a good idea where would be a good place to go about getting the parts. ok here goes. i want a total of around 10" of lift because i only do mud
    front: 8" springs, extended shackles, possibly a zerorate if needed.
    rear: 6" springs, shackle flip, zerorates if needed.

    what do yall think would be best price wise as well as drivability. my first thought was to buy a 6" lift kit but then i would have to replace the front springs,steering arm,and the shocks(if included) would be pretty much useless. so i want to piece it together.

    right now i have a d44/12b but one tons in the future once something breaks. so i would like to build the lift for these axles. any opinions would be great. thanks -sam-
