Lift Kit

Ok, I know lift kits aren't exactly a common topic on this site but I am working on designing a 4" lift kit for an engineering project and need feedback for marketing purposes to present this project for approval.

The lift kit is being designed around Ford, Chevy and Dodge trucks and SUVs ranging from 1975 to 1995 for solid axle leaf spring suspension. The kit includes 2" lift blocks, 2" of shackle drop and extended U-bolts. We plan to market the kit for around $300.

What I want to know is: If this sounds resonable on pricing and for what price you would lift your vehicle (if you were going to lift it at all)? And, with this kind of lift do you see any potential problems?

Thanks for your time and any feedback you leave.

I hate to say, but there are many lift kits available for those trucks. This may be a hard product to market.

I have used different set ups from home made to high dollar kits. $300.00 sounds like a fair price, but I think after everything is worked out you will need to sell them for more money.
