View Full Version : Lift kit
01-06-2010, 01:19 AM
I am trying to find a 4" lift kit for my 01 to get it level but I dont want to buy a hole kit that includes the rear. I looked all over but couldnt find anything. I did find a full 3" kit for around 300$ from sky jacker. Is this my best bet and just not use the blocks in the rear? Is there an easy wat to get that much lift in the front. Ive got 2" spacers from tuff country but thats just not enough. Plus i kinda want some 37s to give me a little better highway speeds.

since you already have 2" spacers - 2" leveling springs would bring you to 4". then just make/find/buy blocks to drop the sway bar or longer sway bar end links ; extended pitman arm ; adjustable track bar to accommodate the 4" total lift . . .
the rear should be easier to do if nothing has been modified yet - either blocks ; or preferably springs . . .

I think it already has thats why i just want to do the front. The previous owner pulled a horse trailer and im pretty sure she did something to the rear to help with that. it sits pretty high. Even with the leveling kit its clearly not level. So i can just get longer coil springs and then piece the rest together?

do a search for skyjacker (skyjunker) on here to review some my thoughts on their cust svc and products. Overall SJ has been fair except for the track bar drop brkt and shocks and bushings.

ya ive read stuff about that when it pops up. Ive had a few lifted trucks but never done it my self. I really dont know much about em. cant be too hard though. I did put my coil spring spacers in but i wouldnt count that. Im probably going to go with the skyjacker 3" kit.

use the toughcountry track bar drop bracket, it's much more stout and has an add-on triangular brace to support it more correctly. If you're piecing it together you might want to double check pricing as the entire kit w/out shocks may be a better option....jmo. Usually suspension kits are designed to work together and mix-matching components may not provide you the best/safest ride.
