Can anyone give me an idea of what their SAS cost them. I don't plan on going extreme. I want to clear a 39.5s without cutting fenders. I will be using a 3" body lift. I know kits run approximately $300. Thats all.

How much lift did your chevy springs give you, and what combination did you use? If you had to do it all over again would you recomend this set up, or have me save my $$ for some Alcans or something?

I love the Chevy springs. Going rate is $100. Can't beat that for something that works well offroad. Not sure how much lift, too many variables, and I never really measured stuff before and after each modification.

300 would be for the body lift kit alone. the first time I spent 8k without tires, this last time I spent over 5k just for axles, tires and rims, and brakes no suspension at all. I would figure at least 5k plus if you did the work yourself and went the cheapest rought.

Thank goodness you weren't going extreme. That starts at 40" tires, not 39.5.... I'd listen to theese guys. It sounds like you are in for a wild ride.Good luck, and goodbye wallet!

Axle swaps aren't too expensive. Do what I did. Never add it all up. Just think of it as buying random parts over time. :D

I'm running the Toy/D44 yoke from High Angle Driveline. I never did like the little u-joint strap things.

I run a cheap-ass kragen u-joint up front that fits in the stock 1310 yoke. Works fine so far.

the joint came out fine, it just slung the caps when the yoke blew the hell up :D i bought a 1410 yoke so maybe it will be a little stronger, if not ill have a machine shop make me one from some chromoly shit.

I thought extreme started at 42", thats why I went with the small tires.
