body lifts blow donkey cawk. but if I ever did a doubler again on a 78/79 bronco with a full body, I would put in a 1" solid spacer body lift. I had to cut so much of the lower body up to get it to fit in there.

1 or 2" maybe but 3 looks gay and you've got to wonder how much more stress is put on the frame

For use on a flexy C-channel frame I am not too fond of the typical solid-puck body lifts. But I am fond of the extra room a body lift can give you to work on your crap. So I was thinking of trying to adapt one of the 1" poly body lifts to work on my truck. Has anyone tried this yet?

If you really have ZERO then your not going to be doing anything. All parts no matter how cheap still cost something. Like was already stated, body lift kits are cheap. I guess cheaper is hockey pucks or a stack of washers and longer bolts. USE GOOD BOLTS. dont use butter.

How the hell can like 30 or so hockey pucks plus bolts be cheaper than just buying the kit???
Only takes 10, not 30, and you can get them for $1.50-$2.00 each.
As for the bolts, most kits come with grade 5 and you'd want to upgrade to grade 8 anyway
