I didn't think RC offered a 5" kit, just a 4" or a 6"? I have a 4" RC suspension lift on my truck and an RC 1.25" body lift that gives me a total of 5.25" but I don't know about 5".

Is the $1,200 the total cost for the kit installed? can you give us a little more information on the kit? If that's the soup-to-nuts price it sounds pretty cheap to me...

The price isn't too bad if that includes taxs. Does that include an alignment afterwards?

For $750 I'm assuming the kit is spacers and blocks? Bottom line, as long as you're comfortable with the guy and you know what you're getting, go for it!
