lift kit

Was on ebay and found a 5inch lift kit. It is just drops. My understanding is that you use stock set-up, this just bolts into frame and you relocate springs. My question is, are these worth a darn or is that a waste of time. I know they will probably be a rough ride but I want to know if anyone has them and how they think of them. I have a 03' 250 CC short bed and want to lift but don't have a lot of money to spend right now.

They will work, but there is alot more to it than just changing the location of the springs. You are going to need a trackbar relocation bracket as well, plus blocks/ubolts/add-a-leaf for the rear. Then there are the other things to consider as well...swaybar end links, then there are shocks... By the time you are all done, you could have just bought a decent lift with everything.

Is this the one you saw???

Not what I'd use...other lift kit manufactures make 4"+ hangers much better made and will provide the necessary components to complete the lift.
