    For a '97 you will need a 6" lift to run 35's. I have a 6" Rancho on my '96 Burb. Its a great kit because it has a 1-piece welded subframe and the upper controlarm brackets are gusseted and boxed in. Its more money than alot of kits but its worth it.

    First decide what manufacture lift kit you are going to install before you buy wheels as differant lift kits require differant wheel offset. Check your local speed or off-road shops and the mail order suppliers for your best price on lift kits. Make sure you get a price including shocks and shipping cost.
