Building lift

I have started building my lift right now I have the 4" rear OME springs,rear trak bar relocator,pitman arm drop,front track bar bracket but need the front springs and shocks and need opinions on what front springs and what shocks?If I can find a deal on OME stuff I will stick with that but they are high.The springs aren't to bad but the shocks are high.I know RC are to stiff and Skyjacker do not hold up to good or so I have read.How about RE shocks????Thanks in advance.I also need Quick dicos or at least longer ones.

Hey Trip!whats been happening? I see you have RC springs with OME shocks.Were did you get the shocks and how much if you don't mind.I found them for $289 for all 4.I guess shipping on top I will have to check.I figure that is going to be about $100 more than I had planed on spending on the total lift.Right now I am looking at $648 for everything and was wanting to stay under $550 just to show if you don't get in a hurry you can get a good lift for a good price.For $648 I will have OME 4" heavy duty lift coils front and rear,OME shocks front and rear,pitman drop,front and rear track bar brackets,and quick discos and the good thing is I am putting together a little at a time so you don't have to come up with 7-9 hundred all at one time when you buy a kit.This way I can save the credit card for the regearing anyway let me know how you like the RC front srings and about your shocks.I am still unsure if I want to go with the heavy duty springs in front cause the rears seam to be pretty stiff.I dont have them in yet but they feel and look like they will be.I was looking at a set of front EZ Ride spings.What do ya think?

i agree with both trip and nick..

the RE monotubes are great.. i ran procomp twintubes before upgrading

i installed an adjustable trackbar from jks in the front, from 0-5'' of lift and does not require a drop pitman arm..
