    I have a 89 k5 at idle it has to much fuel cause of all the black smoke ant 1/4 throttle it flutters what do you think it runs good other than that?

    I have a 8 inch lift 38's on a 1/2 ton truck any way to get more lift out of the front if i do a shackle flip in the rear ? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Question one:
    I dont know, I would say it was the diaphram in your carb but 87 and up are injected. I gotta say you need take it to the mechanic because it is controlled by computers.

    Question 2:
    you could go with longer shackles in the front but from what I have heard that makes your ride all screwed up
    I havent personally done it but it looks like a nice way for some extra lift.

    "Ask" the computer what's wrong.

    Got a Haynes or Chilton manual? It will tell you how to jumper some wires and read the code.

    Good luck. Have fun.
