Default Anyone running a 4" lift?

Any one have any insight as to any particular brands to stay away from? I'm looking for something that will replace the front coils with new, longer ones rather than an extended coil bucket or spacer. I'm leaning towards the skyjacker kit but just wanted to see if anyone has any first hand experience.

I have a Super Lift on my 03. I like it alot. It has a great ride for a one ton. I also have a Tuff country on my 01 3/4 ton and I like that one also. But it does have the coil spacers.

I am running the tuff country on my '99. I got the kit with the front coils and love it. Its been there for about 2 years and no problems at all.

I have a 4.5" Tuff COuntry lift. It came with the spacers. I noticed the spacers would rub on the front of the shocks on heavy compression on the front end. I replaced them with custom made springs from National Spring. Sits just a tad higher than before but created a problem. Now on compression on the front end the front diff cover is hitting the trac bar drop down bracket. Also the spring rubs the frame where the trac bar was originally mounted. No one in the world seems to know what the fix is. All angles, etc. are normal.

Kore or Carli if you've got the dough. Absolutely the best suspension Bill Gates' money can buy. RCD makes good stuff, Tuff Country, Superlift is pretty decent too. Like most anything else, ya get what ya pay for.

I have a 4.5 superlift on mine and love it. No spacers, replacement front coils etc.

Let me know where in the province you are at and maybe we could meet somewhere if I am in that area and you can have a look yourself. Heading North again this weekend.

Ive got this
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/94-02...item439b41b4f9

Its a 3" front and 2" rear lift from tough country with coils not spacers. But when I put it on it was closer to 4" and 3". The picture in the auction is a V8 truck so the front is higher than the rear, but on a diesel truck the front sits about an inch lower than the rear, which is nice if you still use your truck as a truck.

I ran 36" tires with the lift with no problems, and plan on running 37's this summer.
