Need a large lift

I just ordered 35x1450x15 Boggers for my 91 sami, I have a SPOA with stock spring right now, any suggestions on a lift big enough for 35's? I was thinking about going with OME springs with a 1" missing link, but I don't know if that will be tall enough.

Re: Need a large lift

cutting the fenderwells like Tim Hardy, couple inch's more suspension, move the axle forward and you'll be there. If need be, I have 2 inch body lifts that will also help. Sky.

You won't want to use the OMEs with the Missing Link. They flex great, but don't last very long. We use the Rancho springs for this since they're so tough and can handle the stresses of the Mlinks. Yo may need to trim your lift up a bit more for the 35's though witha small body lift.

Why don't you just let your Brother do it for you :-) After I saw what he did with his Toyota, I am sure he could make your Lil Samy so those 35s would fit.

Here's a pic of a Samy with 35s on it, that don't rub?

Dave, he's going to, but I need to know what springs to use. He's making a 3/4 eliptic for the rear, but that just gives droop, not lift. Oh ya my cage is almost done, and it's BAD _ss

Re: Need a large lift

You should go with 3" Nationals and SPOA with a 2-3" body lift. I guess all you need is about 8-8.5" of lift to fit 35's under a zuk. You would need some wider axles with the hight you will be getting, also you would need to trim some bit off your finders if you want it to flex good. The next problem is the engine!!! I have 36" TSL's on my 88.5 Zuk and that is the lift I have minis the springs.. You can check it out on my web-page. Send a pic when you get done!

Re: Need a large lift

Thanks for all the suggestions.I don't think width will be a problem, I just put 15x10 with 2" back spaced Bart beadlock wheels on it, they hange out about 8" past the body. Where do I trim the fenders?
