    2 inch body lift simple q\'s?

    I have made up my own spacers for my body lift, and am going to put it on soon. I don't have access to a lot of bolts (small town) so i need to get some in before i take the body up and do this. Does any one know what lenght, tpi and size and how many bolts i will need for a 2", also besides bumpers is there anything else that needs to get stretched, cut or moved? Oh yeah i hvae an 87 k5 305 tbi 208 and a massive set of 10 bolts, just to clear things up!

    Thanks, Ryan /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    What did you make them out of?

    You'll need to make sure the fan shroud isn't hitting the fan and that it's actually pulling air in, otherwise you'll have overheating problems. You may need to cut the floorboard a little bit or the t-case shifter may hit it and pop it out of 4WD.

    Yeah, i made them on a lathe at work out of 6061 t6 alum.

    I will need to get longer bolts and make a sleeve to seperate the fan shroud like you said, thanks for the info about the floor.

    Does anyone know what bolts i will need?
