Hello all its been awile, but im woriking on my burb again. I want to jack it up some. the susp lift is real big money and lots of work, so no way. Im useing my burb for towing so this is just for looks. The question is can i do a body lift to my 2500 4x4 burb. is it real easy or should i pay someone to do it. Im wondering if i have to drop the fuel tank and stuff like that. I'm doing the body work to burb and am going to spend some money on paint and new wheels and tires. so the lift will make it look better and i can have bigger tires. So can i do this, and how long will it take. thanks all.

Hey, the Body lift gets a bad wrap, but it can be done and made to improve the look of your rig. I've seen guys do it, like a 2" body lift and a 2" suspension lift at the same time. Of course, I've never seen anyone do it on a full-sized suburban. I imagine it's about the same as the Tahoe or Blazer, just a little bit larger scale.

Body Lift

The body lift is easy 2-3 hrs a floor jack and someone with a welder but beforeworned that you should lube up the body mount bolts weeks in advance witha good penitrating oil so they dont break off in the body (doh!!)
and the welder to add on the spacer for the transmission linkage unless the kit you have comes with the bolt on spacer even the 3 in lift looks good and if you tuck some nice tires in the wells who is going to notice how you lifted it a lift is a lift.
