That's what i originally wanted to get...do bracket kits sit higher than knuckle kits?
and also i already have keys and a add a leaf on my truck. im wanting to keep them on when i install the lift kit. do you think i'll have any problem getting it to sit level since the ZONE kit comes with a 5 inch block? the last thing i want is it to sit un level.

I did the superlift bracket lift on my 01 hd and had a total of 7.5 inches of lift with the stock keys and a add a leaf. If you use a knuckle lift you have to buy wheels and the new spindles stick the wheels out about 2" per side.

ZONE gets my vote.... with a Knuckle lift, a 5 backspace or anything smaller like 4.75, 4.5, etc.. will fit...anything bigger and you are getting new wheels.

If you keep the 5 inch blocks, it will sit level and your CV's will still be better than any other lift i've seen..plus you can fit 37's if you wish.

If you do 4 inch blocks, see above....still awesome CV angles..

Or you can do 3 inch blocks like I am and get negative CV angles..

For what its worth. "IF" you ever decide to take the lift kit off (not sure on the zone kits). If you go with a ProComp you dont have to cut the front diff mounting lug off. Hence going back to stock becomes a problem with kits that make you cut off the front diff mount lug. Now I know you have some frame cutting but that can be fixed....


Just my 2 cents

well i ordered the 6 inch zone lift kit yesterday. i also got the upgraded shock option. figured it would be worth the extra $20. i called ZONE to order it but they refered me to Harrington Auto parts because they offer free shipping. so i paid $1316 with shock upgrade shipped to my house. Also going to be ordering some 37 inch toyo mud terrains within the next few days. still shopping around for the best price. i'll post alot of pics when i get it all done!
