Re: does it fit

It should be fine, but depending on what kind of wheelin' you're into, you might have to nip some off the front and rear of the wheel well openings. Also, you could do a 1"-2" body lift, and then they should clear no problem.

Re: does it fit

If you have really good wheel travel, then you may get some slight rubs, & need to trim, but most likely it will be fine. It's m ostly going to depend on your springs "spring rate" and amount of shock travel. I would say that of you have to trim, it will be monor trimming.

Re: does it fit

With the ez rides your gonna have to trim. the spring rates are real soft. what you can do to gain a real easy 1" of clearance is offroad design add a leaves. 1" of height gained and no spring rate added. it should do the trick.

These are not blocks, they are completly safe for use in the front.
