Changing Lifts

Hey guys, I think I'm ready to make the switch from the rc lift that the PO put in to a zone lift of the same height. If I'm going to be doing the same height, what do I have to change? Can I just change the springs? Or must I change the shackles and everything else? Any help would be appreciated.

If you going same height, dont buy a kit all you need is the springs unless your shocks are worn out. It should be cheaper if not then just by the kit.

I went from a sagging 4" Rc springs to 4" zones springs. I bought the zone springs, set of bushings for each spring and new ubolts. That's it.

You'll want to couple shocks to the new springs but other than possible driveline height differences it'll be all the same.

Its all about the cost. I made the mistake of buying RC kit for my old powerwagon, my god how stiff it was and the truck weighed 5500lbs empty. Only after loading the bed with 2 yards of gravel did it ride good.
