Hey all, As I sandblast my 85 K 20's frame, I am getting closer and closer to having to purchase a lift kit. Here are my questions:
Why are body lifts frowned upon? They seem good to me...They come with all the hardware I need bolt the body to the frame, and an added bonus, it sits higher!
Why are lifted trucks not good for plowing? Somebody said that on here earlier, But I'm wondering why. I have a set of 16.5 x 9.75 AR rims I was going to mount 33-36's on, (not sure what I decide to go with), but I planned on using normal stock tire wheel combo for plowing.
Since I'm damn determined to lift a plow truck ;-) , Does anyone make front helper springs? I'm okay with my my front end being stiff, Its just my front end is sitting a bit low as it is with out the plow, those front leafs are dying!
What determines a rear end? I just replaced the diff. cover gasket since it was leaking, and I counted 14 bolts holding the cover on, but its not a Dana. It appears to be some sort of stock GM axle. Any good? How did some trucks get Danas fron the factory while others like mine didnt? was it an option?
Maybe you guys could help me some how pick a lift kit..
Heres my scenario:
Plan to hit some mild trails, no rock crawling
Have those AR rims, with plans for 33's-36's to mount. (summer wheels)
Do some plowing. (not commercial, mine and a couple others maybe)
has 350 4 BB
Need to know anything else?
Ohh yeah, how do I determine what I have for a tranny? its a Auto lol...:-)
Too many toys, not enough time or money!
