I have had good luck with my rancho 5000s. I like the steins just not in my price range but heck I wanted the resovuir (sp) type lol!

well its a hanger lift....im running a 3.5 hanger and add a extra stock leaf in the front, drop trac bar brackets, pitman arm. rear short add a leaf. i like mine. drives a little stiffer than stock just because the rear has the big add a leaf. i picked my whole lift up for 150 bucks used. i heard the x springs ride nice and gives you about 4 inches of lift i think

for all that money for that kit on ebay, you could probably pick up a all spring kit which is better

Yeah, there are lots of hangers way better built than those.

I've seen some similar ones from ebay (not sure if they were the same ones or not)....definitely nothing to be impressed with.

Donahoe Racing, Fabtech, Full Traction, RCD, BDS, etc.. all make much better quality hangers and shackles.

X-springs ride stiffer than stock and will give you 2 inches max. Probably 1.5" after they settle a little.

Donahoe is the best out there from what I have seen, but I've been happy with my Fabtech lift for about 3 years now. My shocks need replaced, but I would think any shocks would need replaced after that time.

Good luck!
