Suspension Lift Kit
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:38:56 PM »
I've been thinking of installing a suspension lift kit on my 86 Chevrolet K30 Silverado. She does have that big heavy 454 big block. I want to run 36x10.50x17 tires and already have lots of clearance since its a 1 ton. Could I get away with running a 4 inch kit?  Does anyone have before and after lift kit pictures of their trucks? Im very interested in how different they might look. Also I am open to suggestions on manufactures. Thanks guys!

Did you check this out http://forum.73-87chevytrucks.com/smforum/index.php?topic=31301.0 ?
I know I fit 33s under my 1ton on stock springs. I can imagine 36s would fit but probably will rub. With a little trimming you will be ok 😋
