Can\'t find a lift- Help!

I have a 1968 Chevy C10 with 2 wheel drive. It's a little too low for me and I want a little bit more ground clearance, but i haven't been able to find any sort of lift for it(body or chassis). Anyone who has any information on a lift for my truck please respond. I'm only looking for a 2"-4" lift body or chassis. Thanks

I have seen guys use the rollers from a boat trailer instead of hockey pucks. They said that they lasted much longer.

post up on the Chevy board, you'll get better responses. Fabtech, Rancho and a couple of other companies make suspension lifts for 73 - 87 2wd Chevy/GMC's, not sure if they have them for your year though.

Re: Can\'t find a lift- Help!

instead of goin to a body lift(which if you wanna go real cheap get 2 inch square tubing cap the ends and drill holes thru it and use all thread)but a body lift doesnt give you and ground clearance just allows for bigger tires. anyway for a 2 wheel drive you can get lifted spindles. thats your best bet it'll ride the same just be a taller and have more ground clearance
