Minimun lift for 33\'s

Would 4' of suspension lift be a bit harsh for just running 33' tires for mostly street use? So far I've gotten talked out of using 35's for the street, and now am considering a new set of 33's ( but narrower than the 12.5's I have now). Would a 2.5 or 3' suspension lift be plenty enought to run 33's with no problems? Anyone have a used set of springs for sale that would be perfect for me to use? Anyone need a used set of 4' unknown brand springs (they are painted and I can't tell what brand name they are)? Thanks

Re: Minimun lift for 33\'s

i think you'll need more than a 4 ft lift to fit 33 ft tires. sorry, couldn't resist.

I used to run 33x12.50's on what I beleive is stock suspension and had some rub. If I go 2.5 I can easily clear 33. Not that it matters, but I have an '81 scrambler.

Re: Minimun lift for 33\'s

Chad, if you do any real wheeling you will need a 1" body lift with a 2.5" lift. I am currently running a 2.5" lift, 1" M.O.R.E. body lift and ConFerr 3/8" longer shackles. My fornt tires at full compression with the sway bar disconnected miss hitting by just a little bit, but it works for me, and I don't exactly do easy trails.
