1962 Scout

Hi everyone. I bought myself a 1962 Scout and have been wheelin a little with it. I just got a set of 31x10.50x15 tires for her and I see now that I need a bit more clearance. This is main a trail rig and I don't wanna sink too much dough into if I can help it. I was just wondering if there is an easy way to gain about 2" of clearance? If there is, where abouts would I get the right parts..or would any of you have something you are ready to part with?? [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] I did a search for lift shackles and came up with the Daystar 1" lift shackles, but I think I need something a bit larger than that. Is there something off of another vehicle that would work??

Sorry for all the questions, but I am such a newbie with these Scouts.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: 1962 Scout

Try the Shackles and 1" body lift (i used hockey pucks). If that don't suit ya, try having springs re-arched + adda leaves. these are the cheapest ways.
