    5\" lift and 33\'s?

    I currently have 2.5" Procomp springs up front,and 2" blocks and add-a-leaf's in the rear. I also have a ORD 1" body lift installed. My question is I have 4" BDS springs (on all four corners) sitting in my garage just waiting to be installed. My question is should I wait till my 33's wear down,or say screw it,and install the new springs? I will be running 35's when it's time for new tires. I just got my TSL's in Sept.Will my K5 look funny with a total of 5" lift and 33's? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif What do you think?

    It just depends on the softness of the springs. I have a friend that has 4" lift and 33s and it looks great. He even has had to trim the fenders some. But mine on 32s when I first installed the 4" lift looked STUPID >>

    I've heard that the BDS springs sag a bit over time. Plus I have my front fender's trimmed. I think it might look funny! /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    I put 4" procomp springs up front and 4" skyjackers in the rear with 33" tires, for some reason the front lift was 2" taller than the rear, so i put 2" rear blocks also and mine looks great. If I were to go to 35" tires I would need to cut the fenders. So I have somewhere between 4" and 6" of lift and its perfect for the rocks.

    I've got 5 inches on mine with 33's. Looks fine to me. Pics on the link.
