ZR2 lift.

Hi guys, I was wondering if anybody knows if the advertise lift kit for the ZR2 are added or replace lift kit. By this I mean: will I get a 5" (BDS) lift added to the standard lift of the ZR2 or is this a replacement (total 5") kit. Also, If BDS makes an added 5" lift and Superlift makes a 6" replacement lift, I assume it is better to go with the BDS since I will get more total lift. I have checked on the different manufacturers website but no information was available on that particular topic. I want to get the highest possible stance on the truck so It is somewhat important.

1999 ZR2 (still stock yet, but not for long...)

Re: ZR2 lift.

If you want a high stance, go with straight axles[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. I know that you probably don't want to cut on the stock frame, but with either of the lifts that you mentioned, it is required. I'm in the process of installing a 5" TM on a 88 S-10 blazer right now(pain in the butt)[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img], and as soon as it is out of the garage, I'm doing a straight axle in my 91'.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I'll have less $$$ in doing the straight axle and all around better performance (articulation and ride) using coil springs. Just a thought. Good luck.

Re: ZR2 lift.

Well, I was thinking of going for a front diff later on. I was also wondering if I would be better lifting up the truck first and then going for front diff conversion. I have installed kits before, but they were "jeep" kits and They are mostly bolt-on [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] but I have no experience lifting a Chevy truck and Thats part of the reason I want to lift a Chevy truck. Its different and also less common than those jeeps[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]. I know that putting a diff in the front requires mostly custom manufacturing but I am wondering if can start up from the first lift (5" example) then put the diff or is it cheaper to go directly with the custom front diff?
