    Save your money andbuy the good stuff. A lift kit is not the place to cut corners. BDS, Rancho and Skyjacker all make well enginnered and good quality kits.

    Budget.....that's a tricky word...... Yeah, I have a budget but at the same time certain items like your suspension, engine, drive train, brakes etc should not be discounted. I guess what saying is if I can get a setup that cost $2500 vs $4500 and I'm not compromising safety and reliability then of course I would go the lessor.

    I would take your time and shop around. Are you going to install yourself? Back in '96 I put ProComp on my '96 'Burb, replaced it a year later with Rancho that is still on today. The ProComp was pure crap!

    Your 'Burb has rear coil springs that are replaced with the lift kits so you want to get a good quality kit so the springs don't sag in a year and ride like a tank.

    @silveradotrailblazer, When I was younger I would have done this without the use of a lift but these days are a different story so most likely I will be having it installed. I'm also thinking about assisting the rear with air leveling kit. What do you guys think about the CST Suspension?
