    I have a Fabtech 6" lift kit on my 04 silvy and I love it. Definitely one of the best lifts I've had the oppurtunity to play with. Another one that I like is skyjacker but there are people that have some bones to pick with them (fit issues). First off here are some to think about. What size lift do you want? What will it be used for (looks or off roading) and what size tires are you going to want to go with after the lift is installed?

    i have a rough country 6" on my truck. i would recommend it cost me $971 shipped to my house and was simple to install. but i'd say if you interested in a lift look around and email the company with some questions and make your own choice............
