    I was wondering if a i would put a 2 inch body lift on a my truck if that would make room to fit 33's and how that would look. If someone has pictures of there truck i would like to see them. kinda need info fast because i have to buy them by Wednesday.

    Thanks

    since you have a z71 then i would say that yes that is enough... my neighbor has a z71 and is running 285's which equal to size 33 on stock wheels so i would assume that it would fit fine... if not then maybe a leveling kit would help with any small rubbing that you may have if any...

    if your looking to run 33's i would reccomed leveling it
    since you have a 4x4 I believe you have torsion bars which you can crank down on to level it out and will be able to clear 33's. :great:

    are you wanting a 2 inch lift so you can clear 33's or so your truck will sit higher?

    lift blocks are used on the leafs (i believe)

    body lift is a 2in lift on the body mounts for the truck

    i was trying to say that if the only reason you want a body lift is so you can clear 33's i would reccomend leveling the truck (which will enable you to clear 33's)

    does this make sense?

    Its pretty easy. (much easier than a body lift)

    You jack the front end up.
    Take off the tire.
    Take off the shock.
    there is a step here i cant rember it
    compress the coil
    insert the spacer
    put it back together
    repeat on the other side

    about 30 min on each side

    and it needs to be alligned after

    Just get the leveling kit from Rancho or ProComp and do it right. I've heard some horror stories about body lifts. The leveling kit is getting at the root of the problem, which is the fact that factory IFS GM's sag in the front.
