tire & lift

I went to a tire dealer and they said a 31 would fit on my 95 s10 blazer 4 door but it may rub a little on the back roads. My question is if I put a 2 or 3 inch bodey lift, will 31-10.5-15 or 31-12.5-15 fit. my other question is has anyone made a bodey lift, if so what all will I need to make and do you have the dementions( I have the metal and machines for it)thanks in advance!!!!

Re: tire & lift

With stock rims and a 3" body lift you will be fine. On the body lift just buy one it is only about 100 and it would be much safer.

Re: tire & lift

Hey man I have a 1998 s-10 4x4 4.3L which is almost the same as yours, and I have no lift at all and my 31x10.50 all-terrain T/A's fit fine with no rubbing even at full turn.I just cranked the torsion bars up about 7 turns.

Re: tire & lift

Besides if you are going to get a lift DO NOT go with any of those bull**** 2 or 3 inch kits, for almost the same price maybe a couple bucks more you can get the Trailmaster 5' lift and run some 33's. You will thank yourself later when you see the results!!

Re: tire & lift

i completely agree...dont waste time on the 3" lift, you will only be satisfied with that for a few weeks before you want to go bigger. if you can do the 5" and stick the 33"ers on now.

Re: tire & lift

the only problem with the 5 inch lift is that it is probably the suspension lift which will run you close to $3000 after installation and new rims(to fit the 33's). The 2-3 inch body lift should do just fine though.

Re: tire & lift

Thing is, the problem with the TM lift is you don't gain much clearance at the diff, because it has to be lowered. Travel gain is next to nil. And the Upper Control Arms on the TM lift need to be cut out for shock clearance. Not a good thing, because it weakens them. Lots of guys have reinforced it, but welding makes metal brittle. Stick with a 2" Superlift and run 31's, you'll gain an extra inch of travel, or save your coin and go SFA if you want huge lift and fat tires.

Re: tire & lift

hi, me nd my bro are reworking his old jimmy, and we were thinking of putting a small lift on it.
When you said the uper control arm has to be cut out for shock clearance, could you be a little more specific? What part/how much of it has to be removed? And, of course, i dont suppose you might have a pic of it?

thanks!

Re: tire & lift

on the TM UCA there's a notch that has to be ground out of it for shock clearance. I've never installed the kit myself, nor do I plan to. Some of the guys who run TM lifts around here might have something, but I don't. I'm still rolling box-stock. Gonna be T-bar cranking and shack lifting this winter unless Santa brings me a Superlift in that hopped up snowmobile of his. Once the Grizzmobile is paid for, then I go and get me a set of axles and do the SFA.
