    Default Help on lift questions for 99 sierra

    Hi i got a 99 gmc sierra 2500 6.0 (new body style). I was wondering What kind of smaller lift can i get without spending 2 grand for a suspension lift. or is that my only option. I put a 2in block in the rear and turned my torsions all the way up in front. Any other way to raise it? thanks

    Did you swap out your torsion keys for aftermarket ones and you could do a body lift

    @Ted Magda- How high do you want to go? Is it to fit a certain size tire? You could go with a body lift or new torsion keys.

    No i didn't swap torsions just turned the ones i had now to lift 1 1/2 inches and blocks in back. i got 285/75/16's now. would like to go bigger if possible. would new torsions lift it higher?

    Yes by buying a torsion key lift you will gain another inch or two, but keep an eye on all of your tie rod angles if you go this direction.

    I heard that you can go up with a spindle lift. I know you can go down with one but I'm also sure you can go up with one.



    If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar
