Y pipe mods
Ema, no need to apologize. Not all people have the same views or comments, some may agree yet others may disagree.....
Yes you are correct, if the lift does not need a y-pipe modification, you don't need to do anything, however, some lift kits require the modification of the y-pipe in order to accomodate the lift kit.
For example, the Trailmaster 5 inch suspension system for the s-series, specifically, the 88-95 models with the 4.3 liter V6 engine, adding the trailmaster kit REQUIRES the modification of the y-pipe...and it just so happens that trailmaster manufactures a replacement y-pipe for that particular application. The 2.8 V6 also requires the y-pipe modification, but you need to have someone cut and reweld the y-pipe to clear the driveshaft, if I remember correctly, but regardless, the point I was trying to make was that with SOME kits, you need to modify your y-pipe (IE. re-route it). This is talking about a 4x4 of course, a 2 wheel drive does not require any y-pipe modifications!!.
Besides that, we are all here to comment and inform, we are here for our fellow wheelers who may need help, guidance, or suggestions; the fact of the matter is, we all want to help each other out. Late.
