4" or 6" lift for 35x12.5x15's
« on: December 15, 2010, 07:25:51 PM »
I have read several things saying that a 4 inch lift on a 80's Suburban will clear 35's and not have any problems. Most of the the lift companies state that a 6 inch lift is required for 35" tires. Any Suburban owners have any first hand information on this? Any pictures of a 4" lift with 35's? or 6" lift with 35's?
