87K30 ?\'s

Hey guys. I just purchased a cherry K30 from my uncle with only 78000 miles on the old girl. It is totally stock and in need of some altitude. This is my first endeavor with a fullsize and want to run a set of 37" swampers. what lift size would you recommend.

<font color=green>You'll want to go 6" if you don't mind a little bit of trimming, not much though, basically just knock the corners off the bottom of the front fenders, or 8" if you don't want to do any trimming. You could also go with 4" with lots of trimming. I'd recommend going the 6" route, that's about as tall as you can go and maintain a decent ride. I recommend Tuff Country since they have nice soft springs, at least in their EZ-Ride line. Nice truck, arguably one of the best years and models for Chevy.
