    I have a 3-inch body lift on my '95 Silverado and would like to raise it more. I dont have the money for a suspension lift, so whats a cheap and easy way to lift it more? Thanks.

    body lift sucks, but u could do more body lift i geuss. u could crank ur torsion bars and put blocks in the back. im against doing it but its a possibility

    ok. blocks go in between the leaf springs and the frame. its basically an extended spring shackle.

    and to crank the torsion bar you use a hex head (i think) and you turn the torsion bars clock wise. if you do that you will need an alignment. and doing that is a risk because you stretch the shocks out.

    "The torsion bars on a truck or SUV connect the front-end steering assembly to the center cross member of the vehicle attached to the frame. Torsion bars apply downward pressure to the front control arm. The rear of the torsion bars (connected to the cross member) have anchor arms with bolts that can be adjusted to increase the downward pressure and lift the front of the vehicle. They can also be adjusted to decrease the pressure and lower the vehicle. Torsion bar adjustments provide an inexpensive way (other than a lift kit) for vehicle owners to increase their front ride height, either for aesthetic reasons, or to accommodate added aftermarket options, like a heavy snowplow attachment."

    you will not have torsion bars unless you have 4wd tho, and you can get block kits that go between axle and leaf springs with longer u bolts, and could get a leveling kit for the front too

    How much more lift do you want? Your maxed out on your body lift, I would highly suggest saving your money and doing a supsension lift. The more you piece your lift together the worse its going to ride...do it right and save your money.

    I think you should wait untill you can afford the suspension lift. Your truck will start to ride like crap otherwise.
