    i searched for a while and cant find anything... so here it goes...

    i cannot find any lift kits for a 2wd 1987 Chevy r10...

    if i do find a kit, what all must i replace... preferably a 4" lift and possibly cab lift... i know with the cab lift i have to put an extension in for steering... but what else needs replaced in order to work properly.... i would rather do it right the first time...

    Try searching Pre-Runners, most of the lifted 2wd trucks from the late 80's and early 90's were custom jobs most of the time built by race teams in their shops.

    Hey Nathan I've been searching for a lift for my '88 C-3500 for years & haven't found one yet, but part of the reason is mine's a 1 ton, & 2wd & 8 lug hubs, so you may have better luck than I did. If Tims & Scotts suggestions don't pan out, try these manufacturers & suppliers that I accumulated while looking for mine. Good luck :)

    Here's a link that will get you started in case you haven't been to the page already. kits

    Here is a list of lift kit & level kit suppliers.

    Wow Stephan it lLooks like you've searched through the whole list of aftermarket suspension suppliers so far.

    Yeah I did Tim. There may be others that I don't know about, but I've been to all of these sites & the only "lifts" I could find were some under the spring spacers. Rather than pay the $140 I just carved some out on my lathe, but what I'd really like is a spindle kit, or an A arm relocation kit to really do it right.
