    There is a reason you can't find any pics.... People don't run that kit for a reason. Get a full 4" or do a TB crank.

      mine with skyjacker 3" and 245's


      I did have to cut off my bump stops to make it work but it rides just like it did before the lift but i left the lift about at 2.5 inches. Should be able to fit 315's no problem

        When picking up a girl, the very first thing you ask is "hey, how's the relationship with your father?" If the response is anything but negative, move along.

          yea if you going to pay the money for a list spend a little more and get atleats the 4". The 6" kits are usually just 4" kits cranked with blocks anyway. If you only want a few inches save ur self a bunch of money and just block and crank to get where u want.

              it depends on the truck just make sure that you have plenty of space between the bump stop

                usually people add the blocks then crank to level and like omega said keep room between the bump stops

                  you can put the ball joint to the bottom of the control arm, this eliminates some of the ball joint angle, and create more space between the droop stop in the upper control arm. my 94 has a 2 inch block in the rear, ball joints flipped, then crank 2 level in the front. clears 285s on stock 2006 silverado wheels just fine.

                      So far greasedog is the only one who has used correct terminology DROOP STOP instead of BUMP STOP, they are opposites.

                      To the guy who cut his droop stops off... what limits suspension droop now? Hopefully shock length over CV bind or BJ angle. Even then, shock length is the wrong way of doing it.

                      OP, click the 92 link in my sig, I used 1.5" blocks and cranked a little less than level (rear springs were sagged some), total crank was maybe 1-1.25". Rode great, didn't eat parts. Had it cranked to nearly 2" and it rode terrible and started to eat parts, so I went back to 1".

                        limit straps do a great job and yes the straps limit before the cv's bind

                          Custom fitted limiting straps on nearly stock IFS after cutting off the OE droop stop?

                          Pics?
