Re: Looking for some help with a 99 gmc jimmy
how much money are you willing to invest? What size tires and wheels do you want to run under it? Then, decide how much lift you need for tire clearance. Body lifts are cheap but will only give you max 3? inches (plus they look bad). Suspension lifts cost a heckuva lot more but give you better performance. Block kits will also require welding extensions to rods and ends, wire extension, and basically anything that doesnt move with the body. If you just want a little more clearance for cheap to run the larger tires, do an axle flip in the back and possibly add blocks. Then crank your torsion bars in the front or add spring spacers. Its cheap and easy and will get you tire clearance if you dont plan on doing very much offroading.
