Hey im new to the lifting seen as i went from a lowered s10 to my new z71 colorado, and am looking to get it a little higher. ive noticed everybody seemes to be going big with the 4" rancho/skyjacker/CST kits for big budgets and with the 1" hockey puck body lift/rear shackle and TB crank for the lower budget. what i am wondering is why no one does an axle flip and then just use blocks? is there a major disadvantage to this? the other question i have is what do you guys recommend for shocks once its lifted. i really dont want to sacrifice ride quality. Thanks for the help!
