lifting a chevy monster truck

Has anyone lifted a chevy shortbed (77) around 16 inches to accomidate for 44 inch tires (this already has a 6 inch skyjacker suspension), this truck is a 1948 - 55 chevy pick up? I WILL NOT CUT THE FENDERS TO ACCOMIDATE THE TIRES!Does anyone know of a website or magazine/book that has any plans for the suspension-I do welding, fab work ect. I have read where the manufacturers say not to put spacers between spring and differential on the front. I could possibly cut the spring perches and weld a plate to the frame to lower the mounts to acheive the height.....any comments or ideas on any of this?

Re: lifting a chevy monster truck

Let me see if I got all that... You've got a 47-59 body style and you're putting it on a 77 K10 SB frame that has an existing 6" lift?

What will you be using this truck for? Since you're unwilling to cut it, I assume it's for show. If that is true then doing a hack job on the perches would not be in your best interest. That ammount of lift will ride sooo horrible you'll probably be trailering it anyway. If all that is true then your best bet would just be having a set of leaves custom made to achieve what you're after. First company that comes to mind is Alcan, but there was a recent thread that had a few listed in it.
