    1\" body lift and SM465 mechanical setup

    I've looked at my clutch before and though that I wouldn't be able to do a body lift due. Will the 1" have problems that anyone knows with my clutch assembly?

    You need to lengthen the linkage by (roughly) the amount of the body lift. Also need to notch the floor where the linkage passes through it. My buddy went through this when he body-lifted his '80 K20.

    I'm just saying forget ti and doing poly body bushings and no body lift. I don't like them very much anyway.

    I put new body mounts and a 1" ORD body lift on my Jimmy a couple years ago. All I needed to do was adjust the linkage...no extending, no hacking or cutting either. That may be necessary for a 3" BL but not a 1" BL.

    Oh yeah, I had to clearance the bottom of the fan shroud so the fan wouldn't hit it.

    I am likely going to electric fan setup cause whenever I get flexy my fan shroud is hit by the fan. But I am puting on Poly body mounts soon so maybe that will fix the problem.
