I currently have an aftermarket 4-inch lift, "up for debate", some people tell me it's only a 2-inch lift. Its got 15-10 wheels with 35s on them.

What do I have to do to get a 6-inch lift? Have been told that I need new drive lines, and a 500.00 alignment when it's done. I have been quoted

from 2000.00 to 4000.00 to get the job done. The radius arms they say have to be replaced, so I'd have to buy a complete kit with shocks and new radius arms.

Also, I have dual shocks in the front left and right and this cannot be changed. The brackets are welded

I just want a real honest answer.

Get another estimate from a shop that does lifts.

Good luck!

looks like you have a 4" lift to me.

What your cost is depends on what lift kit you buy. But I would easily suggest new drive lines because the factory ones won't hold up at the new angles the 6" lift will cause.

I would give the boys at Big Dick Suspension a call and see what parts they recommend changing out with one of their kits.
