You have 2 choices, first is the super lift rear soa kit, this is the one that comes with 5.5 lift, and can be bought seperately from 4wheel parts, or two, you can buy spring perches from Jegs, or Summit, and weld them yourself. I would think that if welding is not what you are into, then buy the superlift kit, it is bolt on. For gears, I would go 4.10's it will keep your r.p.m's down at highway speed. Also post a wanted post in the forsale forum, you wouldn't believe all the cool parts others have laying around. And just a note on the shifter, some have had a problem with it freezing up from lack of use, sometimes a good cleaning will fix it, have the mecanic check it out before they try to sell you a new one.

As for lift, try to go with skyjacker, better hardware, the class one kit is not very high,

what do you mean but not really high?

are you talking price or lift?

I have not had sway bars on my truck for months now... it's different driving like that on the highway but what the heck!

I installed Skyjacker Stage II 6" in the front and went SOA in the back also completely replacing rear end at the same time (disk brakes and 4:10 factory)

If I was going to do it again I would definatelly go for a SAS - might still do it later on when I have more time.

Don't spend all the money on SAS if you're not gonna wheel your truck. For light off-roading even Skyjacker 2" lift with coil spacers would do (and some 33" tires)


good luck
