    Any difference in the lift kits between the C and K models?
    Id like to raise my stock suspension with a 4 inch lift kit including new springs all around.
    Best HD kit available?
    Thanks.

    I used these in a couple of my C20 trucks and Suburbans. Only got about 2" though. I ran a 2" block in the rear. I was able to fit 33x12.50" tires with minor trimmings Sorry I don't have better side shots of the completed truck.

    Not usually. Most 2 wheelers get lowered.
