    Question 6 inch lift, front drive shaft

    I'm debating on getting a 6 inch lift or not. I am wondering though if I do get one will I have to get a longer front drive shaft?? Thanks

    No, both your front and rear driveshafts will be fine.

    Alright cool! What brand do you reccomend for lift kits, for the best money/quailty?

    Well you get what you pay for. For your body style truck I like and have ( on my Suburban) the Rancho kit. It has a factory weld one piece lower subframe and the upper control arm brackets are boxed-in and gusseted. You can get the kit in red or black powder coating. There powdercoating is the best I've seen, looks good and last.
