how big of a lift are you thinking?

a 2" lift is very cheap on these,
purchase some shackles off of ebay and crank your t-bars

then get an alignment

As far as 2dr vs 4dr... Suspension lift techniques, no. Body lifts are different.

I wouldn't recommend actually trying to make it a total of 2". Stick with 1.5" torsion bar crank on the front and do a 2" shackle lift on the back. This would be the cheapest bet.

What does she want out of the truck? Just a little higher ride or is there a need for larger tires?

haha well i was thinking a 3 to 4 inch because she wants to put bigger tires under it she pretty much wants a monster truck haha but i figure 3 to 4 inches is good enough for her

heres one for a 6" http://4wheelonline.com/Products.asp...oductId=124069


i didn't see any 4" lifts during my search, but i could have missed something

also what size tires are you thinking?
you can run 31s safely with a 2" body and a shackle lift+t-bar crank

it all depends on tires size

hmm i like the 6" its just mean looking but way to much for her. as for tires shes thinking around 31's to 33's. think what we will end up doing is the body lift and wait till she has more money and i have a job to get her something bigger

yeah, that's what's stopped me-for now.

well, that and the lack of funds from the work slow down.

The ones on the S10's are the same as length as the 4Dr ones.. I measured them.
