Lift Questions - Yes, I searched.
I've got a 79 K10 w/ 350,TH-350,NP-203, & long bed.
I was considering 35's, but I'm not totally set on that size. Right now the truck has what looks like a 1" Add-A-Leaf on the rear (or it could be an overload spring) and sagging front springs with 31's on it now. The current tires have more than enough room under the truck.
So, the pertinent info:
I'm planning on doing some mud bogging, some unmaintained forest roads, and a whole lot of sand & small/moderate rocks. I don't need anything that will outflex a Slinky, but a little flex would be nice.
This truck IS NOT a daily driver.
I would prefer to not have to cut any sheet metal.
What I need to know:
1) Would a 4" suspension lift and possibly a 1" body lift be enough to clear 35's on a limited flex truck?
1a) Would said 1" body lift cause any problems with any types of linkage?
2) What modifications (transfer case drop for example) would have to be performed to allow a 4" suspension lift?
3) Any driveline issues with 4" of lift?
