Re: Best Lift By Parts?
That crossover steering really isnt necessary to do, i have a 6" superlift kit, and with just the drop-pitman arm the truck still handles/steers fine. Granted there is a tiny amount of bump steer, but it is not nearly enough to make me even consider going out and spending the money on that conversion.
Oh, and ive been up to about 85mph since i had the kit installed, and no problems controlling it!
Just so ya know, almost all kits are designed so that the extended rad. arms (or the drop brackets, whichever you buy) will work with either the 4" kit or the 6" kit. In some cases the 6" kit is actually easier to align
Id have to go along with what BurntPiston said- dick cepek hardware, rancho shocks, and i heard those replacement superlift springs are supposed to ride really good. But if you got cash, you definitely cant pass up springs from National!
Oh, and skyjacker makes some great extended steel brake lines, i have a set on my truck, and man are they long!!! But the important part is that theyre actually quite nice looking (read=not cheapos) and as an added bonus, theyre DOT approved! (not all are, from what i hear)
