Re: Lift for 87 Chevy 4x4 LB
Get rid of the front blocks right away! To get 4" in the front, you can either go with 4" lift springs, or 3" springs and longer shackles. You cannot flip the front shackles.
For the rear, you can either get the shackle flip kit and keep the stock springs, put in 4" lift springs, or keep the blocks.
Offroaddesign.com has a lot of the products you're looking for.
Most people agree that the Tuff Country EZ ride springs will give you the softest, and flexiest wheeling available.
When you go 4", you have to look at your steering angles. You may have to replace the steering arm. You may also have to put in longer brake lines.
If you still have the stock exhaust with the crossover pipe running under the front driveshaft, you'll probably have to modify that too.
Anyways, I hope this helped you out some, and good luck.
