Due to the requests of me to show the importance of TB relocators I will put this at the absolute top. Now for those who dont know the lift kits for the OBS' cause the TBs to hang and become quite noticable from the side. To some this isn't a big deal and to others it matters alot. TB relocaters serve 2 purposes. They aid in ground clearance for your TBs, and they also give the truck a much cleaner look from the side. WWW.realiftsusp.COM [/QUOTE] I plan on putting a decent amount of information and pictures on the first couple pages of this thread so in you guys would hold off on posting until i get it setup i would appreciate it. This is my attempt to help new members or on the fence members out with their RCX vs. Cepek, which lift is best, why are these different type questions in regards to the Old Body Style trucks (88-98). First statement that needs to be made is most people are quick to jump on a band wagon and tell people to get a certain lift, when these people have and no lift, have very little to no experience with lifts, and most the time never had a lift. The best thing you can do is ask questions about the parts list for the certain lift you want, what the parts do, ect. and make up your own mind based on your own research. It also helps to know certain members that you know for a fact have experience with certain lifts, and ask them questions. If you are having trouble finding these members I'm sure you cant PM any high post member or forum leader and they'll help you. here is a rule of thumb tire fitment list - http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forums...mon-lift-tire-combos-obs-nbs-trucks-suvs.html here is gearing and tire size guide - http://www.4wheelparts.com/aux_incl/gear_ratio.html CEPEK Alright time to jump into it. First lift is the Cepek. This lift is said by most to be the best and only lift to consider when buying an OBS lift. It can back up why so many people are its bandwagon with a great track record. The cepek is very affordable and damn near indestructible. For proof on how tough it is search for Cracker on GMFS, and i believe Geoff (or something like that) as well. The Cepek is a full 6.5" diff. drop. This means your track width wont be increased like a knuckle kit and with a full 6.5" drop you can easily crank your torsion bars to 8 or so inches (as many people have done) and still have decent CV angels. The Cepek is commonly paired with tires ranging from 35s to 37s, and many cepek owners have gone with a 6.5 + 3" body lift setup and ran 38s and 40s. The cepek lift is a little more difficult to find than other and is labeled as extreme suspensions lift due to a buy out I believe. The Cepek is an outstanding lift but it is not the only great lift for the OBS. The main reasons it is so popular is its proven strength, decent price and is taller than most any other 6" lift out there. The Cepek has several options like dual shock hoops stage 1 and 2 ect. The truth is the stage 1 is enough for 99% of people (some members wont like this but it's the truth). The hardest wheeled ifs trucks out there with the cepek are running the stage 1. The benefit from the stage 2 is the impact struts and unless your dukes of hazzarding around and ramping everything you don't need them. oh yes i almost forgot Cepek is pure beef! link = short discussion on bds vs. cepek strength http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forums/general-discussion/offroad/214947-lift-question.html pics of cepek trucks RCX The RCX is another great lift offered for the OBS. The first gen RCX lift wasn't anything to get excited about, but Rough Country has come a long way recently and their lifts are some of the best money can buy. In the case of the OBS lift very little money. The 6" kit is right at 1000 dollars, and you can find deal all the time to get the kit and shipping for close to i not right on a grand. The RCX is another full drop lift so the track width is not widened. The RCX is a 5" diff. drop so it wont be as tall as some other lift that drop the full 6. in order to get the 6 inches you must crank for the last inch. One a side note if you are up in the air about getting the 6" or the 4" kit just get the 6. They basically the same price and are the same kit, the 6 just has an add-a-leaf for the rear. Also no one in the history of humanity has said I got the 4" lift and I'm glad i did because i would never want toge higher......everyone wants to go higher sooner or later. I have seen in person and in some thread where the rcx has been taken offroad but nothing "hardcore", but all in all it apears to be a very capable kit. The biggest thing that people love about the RCX kit is fairly easy install (for a full drop), THE PRICE, and rough countys 2nd to none customer service. The rcx is often paired with 35s or it seems more commonly paired with a body lift and some 37s or 38s. The first 2 lifts have more threads than anyother brands in regards to Cepek vs. rcx? http://www.gmfullsize.com/forum/showthread.php?t=170713&highlight=rcx+vs+cepek http://www.gmfullsize.com/forum/showthread.php?t=147387&highlight=rcx+vs+cepek pics of rcx, these were pics i found quick or liked if you want more or some with out the bl just run a search they are EVERYWHERE.
