so i have a 72 k5 and i wanted to lift it 8 inches. but i came across a great deal on a 6 inch (all spring lift braided brake lines all the steering components and 35 tsl's with wheels for $520.) yet when i gather some extra money i would like to go to 8 inches, does anyone see anything wrong with using an add-a-leaf all the way around or diy4x's and an inch to gain extra the extra height?

Fuck it man...that's a great deal. Just go with that for the time being. You can always do shackles/AAL's in the future if you want to. Just curious, why are you stuck on 8"?

Yeah, just like mike said. buy it! Throw some shackles on later! You can even get bigger hangers. That will put you over 8!

6" springs are perfect for 38's. Put a longer shackle on them and reloacte the rear shackle hanger forward to creat more flex and better ride quality.
Here is 6" lift with the method I just explained on 38's
