i paid around 60 bucks for the shackles from summit...theyre belltech 6400...and post up your spring code...you can find it on the door tag...i have #1 bars(the stiffest offered) so they are least prone to sagging


and thanks!

super lift or 3in body lift are the best options to get some lift.

also if you check the classifieds there are some great deals on the RCD coilover lift that is no longer made and is a great kit.

Is cranking my torsion bars 2in as bad for the front end as getting the 2in keys? Or is it all the same?

dont get the keys...they put so much more stress on front end components than cranking the stock keys
