Dont use radius arm drop brackets, they tend to bend and put alot of stress on the frame, sometimes it causes it to crack. I myself just ordered a Procomp 6" Stage II w/t extended radius arms and replacement rear leafs for $2125, the kit only costs $1750 with just add-a-leafs

I have a D44HP out of a 79 F150 complete, i might part with it, I haven't decided yet tho.

I have the 6" BDS stage II (extended radius arms)... I bought it hardly used for $500 I think it was.. shackle flip/extension in the rear with a 3" block ..I don't mind it so far... but I've only had it out about 4 times... no idear how it flexes or anything... I would go SAS if I was gunna keep it for mainly offroading but I have another truck now so I'm just gunna keep it the way it is.. good for camping and general offroading

[stupid] :s30x: .... cost u less than a kit and will work better....

the only upgrade to the ttb worth doing is to throw it the fuck away ...

I have two complete donors for ya - 79 f150 with a bored out 400, 4 speed manual for $700, or a 78 with a 4" lift tired 390 and c-6 auto for $1,000 both 4x4

Head up that way regularly so you rent a U-Haul I may even deliver one for ya.

crazy ok well i'll have to see about funds here aha and see if my dad will let me get another truck aha our farm is startin to look like a indian reservation

Go with BDS maybe, I dont know about quality but they do stand behind their lifetime warranty ive heard.

I have had a BDS lift in three of my trucks and everything is still holding up perfect. I see my old rigs still kicking around on the original stuff, and it hasnt even started to rust yet!! I dented one of my front shocks and sent it in (obviously my abuse) and they sent me a new one in two weeks. Im dealing with CAGE offroad now, but if i was gonna do a conventional lift it would be BDS again.
