I would prefer not to post my costs publicly, but if anyone who is interested called me, emailed me or pm'd me I'd be more than happy to discuss.

For me, I'm interested in a solid 3" lift. Enough for good clearance but not so much as to require lots of extra work beyond coils, shocks, steering damper, and caster correction. I've been looking at OME mediums for a point of reference, but would like just a little more height than those. (I don't plan on heavy bumpers, at least for a while.)

I am about to pull the plug on a new set of springs. I am at a 4 inch lift currently. My current springs are fairly worn so I have been shopping for a new set up. hmu

I'll jump in as well. My 40 springs are toast and leaning heavily to one side. I was going to go OME but I've been too busy at home/work lately to bother with car projects so I didn't get them ordered. If it matters, I have a 78 with the smaller lift eyes. I run 70 series axles, so the u-bolts are different, but the frame pins and shackles are normal.

I will send pm's with pricing to everyone tomorrow! Today was super super busy, it was practically "order everything from Ryan day today!"... not that I'm complaining (I get to eat this month... maybe even beer!!!)

OilHammer, I'll have some specific questions for you since you have an axle swap.

Thanks guys for all the interest! Super exciting!

I'm interested as well, like I said I'm mid-resto but I have a crappy rough-country lift on there now that needs to be removed. Standard 40 stuff under mine but the later model shackles and spring eyes.

Just to update everyone, I apologize the delay in getting back. I'm just working out everything on my end. So I have all the info required to go forward.

70 axles aren't that different than a 40. They are about an inch wider overall, but you get the FF rear and the updated knuckle. I moved the rear axle perches in to match a 40 width, but I left the front alone. I probably should have moved the front one's in, but they were only about 1/2" off and that would have been a lot of work since the front axle has 4 u-bolt perches. They look just like an FJ62 if you are familiar with that... So my bolts don't wrap over the top of the axle, but there's an "ear" on top that they wrap over instead.
