OK
DAD and i finally decided to just go for the lift on my Z. HE found out how much the SFA on his would run and almost shit. So here i sit.

98' Z71 3 inch PA bl

IM going to add an extra 6" suspension and a slight torsion crank.
Ive been looking into the lifts for a while and i finally found two i like. NOw yall tell me what yall think.

RCD 6" suspension or Fabtech 6" suspension

I know guys who run one or the other and they seem to work well.

For tires im runnin 36x14.50's and need yalls preference on gears too.

Reply back with yalls opinions on the lifts and gears. :think:

Thats what i plan on getting. From what ive read thats the best lift kit for the OBS. The rancho also seems like a good kit.

for an obs. cepek and rancho are going to be the best kits you can buy. RCD is a great kit too.

do not waste money on a fabtech. its just an RCD kit with uglier parts and much crappier shocks.

For the '88-'98's, Cepek would be my first choice, and Rancho a close second.

But between RCD and Fabtech, I'd go with RCD, no question about it. I've seen quite a few OBS Fabtechs lately, and was less-than-impressed.

D. Cepek Stage 2 is top of the list for your year truck IMO. And like others have said, Rancho would be second on the list

No as far as I know CST does not make an OBS kit... Unless it is just coming out I know nothing of it.
