Question Lift Kit....... HELP?

A local company wants to sell me a lift kit for my 97 DS and it does not look like the kits I see on all the sponsors pages...... Would y'all take a look at the photo and tell me what is different and is it good or bad or does not really matter? They talking to me about this 6" kit and a set of four 22-11-8 all terrains with 8" offset steel wheels for $525.00.... Again I am new with all of this so any input on this topic is HIGHLY appreciated. Thanks!

I'm no expert but that looks like a super basic lift. Seems you can get the more sophisticated A-arm lifts for about $350 from Tom at Cart Parts Plus or other online retailer.

Now if that price includes the install, it might be a better deal.

Also, if that price includes the wheels & tires...much better deal. As for the quality of the lift, I'll let the experts handle that.

It does not include install but it does include the wheels and tires. A arm Kits are for 8" aren't they?

There are A-arm kits for 4", 6", and maybe even 8" lifts.

Total price with wheels and tires is pretty good.

Not a huge off road kind of family. Back yards and dirt roads is about the most. I asked them and they said they always use 8" no problem. And prefer it because there is more rubber and less metal which gives it a "more cushioned ride".......? Also I got them to email me the install paperwork. the 2 extra pieces that really threw me off (long bar with flat bracket on each end) is a camber kit!

Input on the kit as well as the package price? Thanks!

That's close to my set up. Backyards, dirt roads and neighborhood cruising. My tread is a little aggressive for the street. Might consider the tread/tire they are selling. Also as CTD points out, this lift is for metal dust cap CC DS, not plastic = make sure of what you have, AND requires 10" wheels, not 8" steel wheels. Verify all. This is the basic of lifts and is priced accordingly. I have 8" wheels and would do 10" wheels if starting over. Just my 2 cents. Whatever you do, don't look back and enjoy the ride!

Yes, I have metal caps. They say that they always use 8" steel..... I will ask how much to upgrade to 10". Can I ask why you would switch?
