    I am going to be installing 4" leafs with 1" Zero rates on my 84 k10. My question is (yes I searched) What items do I need to complete the lift?. Obviously the Leafs and the Zero rates...but what about bushings, extensions, steering arms,Etc Etc.??? I just want to make sure I have EVERYTHING BEFORE I start the install. What parts are absoultely needed and what can wait? Moderate offroading/D.D.....Thanks! :truck:

    Heres what i would look at:

    Steering correction of some kind (MUST)
    longer front brake lines (MUST)
    longer rear brake line (before offroad)
    longer shocks
    ALL suspension bushings (easier to do it now while youve got it apart)
    Driveshafts (?? - hopefully not, but you will have to see)

    Also of note:
    Sway Bar - disconnect drive without it for a while, then decide if required
    Ebrake lines - should be able to adjust out... but you never know
    Diff vent lines - cheap to replace, probably not long enough or old and cracked

    sweet. Thanks for the start. As far as bushings go, what should I get? Greasable or not greasable?.... Thanks!
