    Guys, I've searched and searched... I wish I had bookmarked it when I read it... but I digress...

    Im looking for a thread that was about guys discussing their lifts, what parts they used and what their total lift was with measurements. I thought it was a sticky but I cant find it. Any help?

    Im looking specifically for a post where someone detailed their lift, 1st Gen Silver Xtra Cab I believe. Billy 1500's, Wheelers 5 pack, OME 881's, miscellaneous bushings and drop brackets for the exhaust and brake prop valve. Their were measurement numbers of the actual lift.

    Im looking for the info because im thinking of the exact same setup, but I have a Reg Cab 4 banger and im wondering what springs to get to achieve about a 2 inch lift without moving the spring perch on the Billy 5100's.

    Thanks for the help guys,
    Jesse

    MTgirl, nope but I did find your thread in the meantime while trying to find the original...

    The thread im looking for was more geared toward discussing lifts, with measurements, rather than a thread started by a single person looking for advice.

    Thanks though!
