    Default help on how to fit 35 inch tires on suburban

    I have a 2001 suburban 4x4 that im thinking of lifting 6 inches to fit 35" tires, will 6 inch be enough or do i need a 7 inch and will they rub much? I dont tend to take it off road much just want to do it for the looks. Another question, how much power will i lose running stock gearing? Im still in highschool so i cant afford to do lift/tires/and gears at the same time

    i would reccomend a 3" suspention lift with a 2" body lift...

    that way youll save a TON of money, fit the tires you want, get the ground clearance youll need, and still maintain stock suspention geometry for safe dependable driving/controll at highway speeds

    just invest in good shocks and regear with the money you will have saved, and your done =)

    lift keys and add-a-leaf springs =<$100
    body lift bushings =$<125
    regearing =<$400 (and yes, you will need to re-gear with 35")
    tires = $ up yo you
    laybor= $ also up to you
    Gas was $1.83 when Obama took office.....
