4-6" Lift On OBS

Im thinking about lifting my obs 4-6".

I want to know if anyone is running either a 4 or 6 inch lift with the D50 axle and if they are having any problem with it.

Thanks

well it was sposed to be a 4 inch when I got it but it lifted it way more than 4 inches. it came w 3.5 inch blocks in the rear and I had to do a shacle flip to give it 5 total inches in the rear to sit level.

The main two reasons I took the 4" Rancho lift off of my 91 were that the front end needed all balljoints and tie rod ends plus it needed the Skyjacker tie rod kit. It handled and drove well. Took a while to find someone to align it, and then I had to show them why they couldn't get the camber right. I put a D60 in, I figured money spent on rebuilding it was better than rebuilding the TTB.

The issue with the tie rods on lifted TTB gets worse the higher you go, but the tie rods get on a high angle and "roll" as you steer back and forth. The only fix for that is the Skyjacker tie rod kit which is expensive but effective.

Again I chose to spend the money on a D60........
