    Default suspension lift kits

    Hey guys,

    Anyone have suggestions for a 2" or 4" lift kit on a 1986 2wd sub? I just want some more clearance.

    I've seen "spindle lifts" for 1/2 tons, but not 3/4 tons. I hope someone else has better news for you!

    you have 2 solid axles right? should be just add a leafs? or maybe a new set of springs.

    Thanks for the replies. I think the springs in front and add a leaf in the back is the way to go I just can't find a kit.

    Thanks for trying dsfloyd and thanks for the link Darkness23. The site only lists subs as low as 1988 can i still use this or can i use the chevy truck stuff?

    edit: Duh I guess I should look closer at the years.

    what kind of set up is your suspension? spring in the front leaf in the rear? or springs all around?
