Dick Cepek lifts

I am new to the board and frankly im too lazy to search for this subject. I know that the company perodicaly went out of production. But for christmas my parents are buying me a 4in lift for my '90 bronco xlt. I think they a leaning towards buying me a dick cepek since they are going to get it for a ggod price. Can anyone gave me their opinion of these lifts and how they perform. thanks

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

My opinion is that they are good as long as you get the Series II w/the rear springs instead of blocks.

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

Yeha, but thats pretty much the standard for any lift kit. Blocks are not your friend!

Actually, ive heard that the d.c kits have the best (read=beefy) extended radius arm. much better than superlift, rancho, skyjacker, ec

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

Dick Cepec is as good as it gets up front. Dito what they said on the rear.

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

I have a good friend with a DC lift and it appears to be very stout, he said he even likes the way it rides.

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

I've never installed one, but i've installed a couple other mfrs' kits and I have to say that from the pictures I've seen, the DC kit looks infinitely more stout and better designed than all the others I've seen first hand. go for it! and yes, avoid blocks if you can afford to... or put in an addaleaf and go with a smaller block.

Re: Dick Cepek lifts

Most people seem to like the DC lifts, mainly because the front components are good. I believe all their lifts come with blocks for the rear...2.5" blocks for the 4" lift and 4" blocks for the 6" lift. This you will want to swap if possible for new leaf packs (expensive), do a spring over in the rear, or get some good add-a-leafs. In any of these cases, this will be an added cost.

I'm not sure why they went gung-ho on the front, and the rear was just a poor afterthought.

The shocks are usually sold seperately, and I would recommend a rancho 9000 or new 9000x I believe they are calling it. Both are adjustable. This will add another 200-300 for a set of four. You should not need extended brake lines with a 4". if you go 6" you might.
