rancho 4\" lift kit
 
I've been reading some of you guy's post and some say that the 4" rancho kit is actually 6". I ordered a 4" rancho for my 2003 silverado. Will it actually be 6"? How about the rear end is that 4 or 6
thanks for your help

it depends on what setting u put your torsion bars at. I think teh brackets actually drop everything 5.5"

I have talked to one of the guys at Central 4 wheel drive and they say that the Rancho kit is only 4 inches. if you want more you can crank your t-bars but that is not advised.

I have one on a 99'NBS and it gave me a full 6" with the t-bars set back to stock position. the sub frame drops 4.5" but everything else drops a full 6". The kit actually has you de-crank the tbars in order for it to be a 4" kit. But for the most part you will be about 5" and level front to back with decent cv angles.

So should I be able to fit some 35's pretty easily under this kit?

Re: rancho 4\" lift kit
 
yeah I should you should be able to.

on some 8" wide wheels and a decent backspaceing, 4.5"s or so but you may even get away with 3.5"s of backspaceing.

Re: rancho 4\" lift kit
 
So would you get 35's instead of 33's?

Re: rancho 4\" lift kit
 
yeah Id defiantaly go with 35s

Im running 35s under 3 solid inches of lift and nothing more than alot of fender trimming and uhhhh modifing.
if you get 4-5"s youd be able to do it with alittle bumper trimming
