    I just lowered my bars, the original owner had them all the way up and wheels were coming off the ground when I went over big bumps. The problem is when you crank them up the tires pull themselves in. I say turn them up maybe a 1/4" on the threads; this may help out!?

    What is the width of your rims sometimes that will make a difference as well if they will rub or not.

    even if they are stock width with 10.5" tires I would think it would be fine. And I have a feeling he won't want to trim fenders on a nice newer style vehicle, especially just to clear 32s.

    2" body lift will do the ticket, show a lot of frame but hey tahts how the newer Chevy's are.
