    I got a 85 K20 with a 4" suspension lift on old 35's. I would like to put on a 3" body lift and run some 38's. Can I get away with 7" of lift and 38's without to much trimming? what about 39.5's? Also, can I grind my calipers on a 14 bolt to run 15" rims? thanks

    If you don't mind cutting the fenders some the 38's will fit with the 4" suspension, or get the ord 1 inch body and some zero rates. :)
