Lift for a Scout...

I was looking into getting a scout. But since they dont have the largest wheels, or ground clearance, i was hoping to maybe lift mine. I know that suspension lifts are the best, but they are soooo expensive. So i was looking at the other two main kinds. Body, and Shackle lifts. I want to know if these two are any good (i have heard bad things), and maybe also just compare them to suspension lifts. I have also heard about spacer lifts, but any information about lifts would help...

Re: Lift for a Scout...

How much are you wanting to lift the truck? If you are welding could lift your scout 6" easily by doing a spring over lift. You can get 33's to 35's under the truck with no prob. Shackles are a head ache and body lifts find more probs later. If you have any other questions.......just mail me here or at [email protected]
