    "So to really use a spring under pack to get lift you need like 12” shakles"

    Oem 6lug packs with 6lug shackles on spring over will put the same hight as a six lug... oem 6lug on spring under will lower. Oem 5lug on spring over will lift more then 6lug. 6 lug packs have less arch then 5lug pack

    Though I'm not really interested in lifts I still find myself reading build threads start to date, yours included. Good luck with it.

    You can get a 86-94 4x4 pickup spindle, change the hubs, put the passenger on the driver n driver on passenger and then you can have 6 lug on the front. That's what the ESB LT kit uses

    “Defined engineering long travel for a 6 lug. Works fine, but there are better working choices out there such a dmz"


    "Nothing. The defined kit is a bolt on spring pack with a longer shackle. After some research I determined that the hanger to hanger measurements are the same as a six lug truck. And, since the 5 lug is SUA from the factory it bolted right up to the axle. I did play around with the carrier bearing to get a better driveline angle, and moved the bearing forward. I should have a 2 peice driveshaft built to take a little load off the bearing, but eventually I will switch to the dmz kit, then have the drive shaft done. I've driven the truck 25k miles or so and the bearing is still ok."

    "My current set up works, no problems, but its known that the defined kit is on the lesser performing side of the available long travel kits. I'm not sure he even sells them anymore.”

    I have a 2nd gen I'm looking to level/lift. I am not handy and have found a shop that will do the work if I provide the leveling kit. Currently running 235/70/r15 like to go up to 235/75/r15 tires. What level kit will I need and will I need additional parts ? I read through the thread but it honestly confused me more.
