    a guy i know is selling an old chevy pick up it has a 10 inch lift on it and i was wondering if that could fit on my k5 i looked it looks similar underneath but I didn’t know if maybe they made the pick ups different I always assumed they were the same

    if it is a 73-87 half or 3/4 ton truck, it will bolt right in your 83

    IT'S A 1 TON THING.... IF I HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT, YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND!!!

    Brian is right, it will bolt in..............BUT there are other considerations for a 10" lift, including but not limited to (lawyerese speak [​IMG]) steering arm change.........driveshaft length...........pinion angles............shock length..............plus you then will need new wheels and tires to make it look hot! Good luck......
