    Welcome to the club. What type of truck do you have, 1/2 or 3/4 ton, 2wd or 4wd, gas or diesel, pick-up or suv?

    Sorry man, after I posted my answer I saw your trucks discription. I would go with a Rancho kit for your year truck because it has a factory welded one-piece lower subframe and the upper control arm brackets are boxed and gusseted. Its advertised as a 4" lift but it is a 6" lift. Rancho's lawyers won't let them advertise anything over 4". You can run 35" tires with no problem. Also they have the best looking powder coating (black or red) suspension parts out there.
