I about ready to order a lift and already have my spring perches. The rear will be a SOA conversion, I want the extra clearance and also want as much flex as I can keep without building an all out trail rig. The answer I'm looking for is will the 4" front with a small spring washer/spacer get me close to level? I know the SOA says... 5.5 but Ive read some people say a 4" can work but wanted to hear from those of you that have ran the set up. 5.5 front looks a little taller than I want to go in the front, looking to run 33x12.5x15s.

My SOA ended up close to 6", 5.5" is probably the true measurement. I did 64" chevys at the same time. I'm pretty sure I'm running over 6" on the front of my '94. The ball joint cut-n-turn made it possible to lift it without brackets.

Drives great. Rides Awesome. The biggest expense was the Deaver coil springs.

On my sport I did a 3.5 James duff lift and added 1.25 spacers. I also removed the overloads on the spring pack when I did the spring over. It came out good. Little high in the rear but not bad.

Thanks guys. I did 4" with 1" spacer up front and the soa on the rear. I'm happy with it, not a great pic but the best I have to show the result.
