    Eddo's recent write-up on the Emu lift got me thinking and I came up with the following budget-minded ~2" lift:

    OME926 - Old Man Emu Liberty Coils - Front - Medium Load (0-150lbs) - I have a portable winch
    OME947 - Old Man Emu Liberty Coils - Rear- Light Load
    RK16 - Rusty's KJ Performance Rear Shocks

    The following items add up to $300 on Rusty's site and I won't have to use any spacers. I could then use a clevis lift and/or Rusty's strut plates to level the front with the back (and perhaps gain an additional inch in the front).

    Anyone have any opinions on this? The idea has been rolling around in my head and I'm curious if I am missing something :)

    Thanks...

    Sounds like a good inexpensive setup to me.

    One thing I might suggest would be to look at a different set of shock in the rear. I've heard a few complaints about Rustys shocks being a little bouncy. I would recommend Bilstein or Rancho RSXs. Check out All J's site for the rancho's

    Give Quinn a call if you have any questions. He is a really great guy.

    Just a little extra info. You are probably looking for a rear shock that are around 24.5 extended and 15 collapsed. That is what the Rancho's on All J's site measure.

    Also go to
    http://www.bilstein.com/html/applications/5125/index.htm
    And look at the BE5-A463-H5 that will probably work well too.
