    I know this question has probably already been asked, but what are the differences between the 5 lug and 6 lug suspension or frame. I know the six luggers have the leaf springs over the rear axle instead of under, like the 5 luggers, and the front struts are longer I'm guessing, but what are the other differences? ie UCA's, frame, etc.?
    thanks

    wow, crap, that's completely different. what are the best front suspension options for a five lug if i want to get it lifted a couple inches? other than a fat bob's or readilift spacer option

    Also, could anyone tell me if this setup would work?
    2.5" SAW's up front (stupidhurts has those on his 5 lugger, so I'm guessing those'll work)
    TRD bilsteins in the back with an axle under springs mod?

    The SAWs or Icons, some TC upper arms or the TC LT kit.
