My lift is technically a zone, like said bds makes it, i ordered through bds on sale for like 1299 for my 03. In my opinion the parts are very quality. Truck rides like factory to me til i cranked torsion keys up. I thought it was a good deal. Just something to look into. Good luck with it hope yur satisfied with whatever one u buy

Tuff country makes a great lift for the money too. Know a few guys with them as well as me and all are well built and ride awesome.

Does anyone have a comment on blocks vs. full leave springs when sled pulling or drag racing? Is it worth the money to buy lift leafs or will the blocks not effect much?

Thanks, Joe

In my opinion i would go with a spring lift for the rear everytime. Although i hav blocks, i built a badass set of traction bars that i know will keep that axle where it needs to be...im worry free now, no axle wrap or much flex..

no i did not.. i just used sch.80 2 inch pipe..made all my own brackets outta 1/4'' plate steel and grade ten bolts. im not sayin they are the best. but i could tell a huge difference.. when i floor it, it gets right to business asap.. i would record my axle wrap at a launch, and it took complete care of that problem.. IMO im impressed with the outcome which makes me comfortable running the blocks in the rear.. i still believe springs would be a better way to go but i wasnt thinking when i ordered my lift. if a guy is runnin a shit ton of hp and hes pullin i wouldnt recomend blocks.. also i might hav not used the correct word when i said ''flex'' the suspension still works as it should, maybe more stiff would be a better explanation

Alright ya I would do trac bars regardless but if zone offers full springs it might be worth the extra money just for a little more peace of mind. Thanks for the help
