We've done this before a few times and by the time the rubber compresses, you will actually gain about 5/8" body lift. Works well for fine tuning a lift for larger tires.
>Do I have to make some sterring adjustments ???
Not with a body lift this small.
>How do I avoid tire contact with springs ?
1)Cut your springs off and move them further in to the middle of the vehicle. Require substantial fabrication skills and is pretty much irreversible.
2) Limit your turning radius with larger steering bumpstops. Why anyone would go this route is beyond me though.
3) Wheels with less backspacing. This pull the wheel out form the vehicle for a wider and more stable stance, while getting the tires off the springs.
4) Wheel spacers. These are something we sell and can be moved from vehicle to vehicle. Same principle as a lessor backspaced wheel.
>In the front I will cut the frame extensions (they also >rub), how can i remount the original bumper for the anual >inspection?
If all you need is a quick easy install once a year, use some ubolts. Drill a couple holes in the bumper for the ends of the ubolt and then the ubolt will go around the frame tube to hold it in place temporarily.
