lifting an 86 Pup

I just purchased an 86 Pup 4X4. I would like to raise it some, what is the best way to do this? The leaf springs are under the rear axle so blocks won't help me, is there a shackle or hanger kit that will raise it a few inches?

Thanks for any help, Kerwin

Re: lifting an 86 Pup

Kerwing I'm no expert on these trucks bu tI understand that they are the same as an S-10 Chevy so I guess that you could go to the GM small trucks and suv's board here and ask for thier help.But one thing i do know and that you should never use blocks to lift a truck especially one that going to be used off road. Hope this helps you out some.

Re: lifting an 86 Pup

this truck is not the same as an S-10. you can't get info or parts from the GM gguys on this. I have seen the 88and up moidels lifted(same as a rodeo pretty much) but i am not sure if anyone makes a lift for these trucks. You could use a body lift just to be abe to fit a larger tire(31" is probably the largest). Any thing else might have to be custom.
