Theyre a little cheaper on amazon. Not by much but a little and much faster shipping than Qtech.

Any truth, or ideas here?

downs If you don't want to lift it just go with some Crown or General Spring replacement springs.

downs S10 (or Dodge Dakota) leaves aren't a direct swap in. You build what's called a bastard pack with them. Basically disassembling your stock leaf pack and using a combination of leaves from your leaf pack and the donor pack to build a leaf pack to the height you want.

4 inches of lift is going to require a lot of extra ($$$) stuff to do it properly.

CJ7-Tim Do you want to lift it or just fix it ? What is the budget, and what are the goals for the suspension ? Have you researched the additional modifications/expenses required for lifting the suspension 4 inches ?
