i've decided to go higher, but need advice

i've gotten tired of just the tbar lift...and i'd like to go with a spindle lift.

what brands of lifts are the best? how much would i expect to pay?

how hard is the install?

and for the rear, can i just use chevy 1/2 ton leaf springs for lift?

please, anyone with info help me out. i dont know too much about this type stuff....

thanks a lot guys!!!

Superlift or RCD $1500-3000

It involves lowing the front crossmember, or totaly getting rid of the t-bars with coil overs depending on the brand
