From what i've read and heard, depends on what type of driving your gonna do....

the fab-tech will give better articulation because of the longer control arms....BUT...it aint cheap...

I have a skyjacker 3", and its ok......but i heard the 5" is really nice for the money.....

The Skyjacker stage II looks like a really good kit. I think that it is what I will end up with at some point.
I was thinking about the single flex. I have heard that the double flex has some issues on the street.

Gonzo,

Do you plan on doing alot of flexing? If not, you don't need the double flex system. I heard that the double-flex system gives you some kind of vibration problems (it's posted somewhere in here). I have the standard upper and lower control arms (no heim joints at either end), and my suspension system performs well while 4-wheeling!!!

Surf the net for the best deal on suspension kits. My kit was about $1200.00. The FabTech kit is expensive, but is a very well fabricated system, which gives you a lot of flexing capabilities. I've seen this kit go for $1700.00 for the top-of-the-line kit with dual shocks!!!...then there's installation! Usual shop rates are anywhere from $80-$100 per hour! OUCH!!!

I JUST put on a Fab-Tech lift on my '97. It cost me $1700 and I think it's worth every penny! The kit was installed be myself and 2 other friends. There are modifcations that are done to the truck which will NOT allow you to return to stock. I plan on wheelin' the hell out of the truck so it wasn't a concern! I fit 35's EASY and under HARD turning I feel just a nub of rub - but I have MT/R's too. I would vote for the Fab-Tech - It was my final choice!
