    I am planning on putting a 4" lift on my 90 suburban. If I add a zero-rate to the front will I have to have the front driveline lenghtend? Also can I run a 6" spring in the rear w/o having to extend that drive line?

    Whenever you do any type of lift or suspension adjustment, all bets are off. Just plan on new driveshaft lengths, front and rear.

    You can technically run a 4" lift with no changes, Im doing it and havent ran into any problems what so ever, but I got my truck like that and planned on getting them lengthened but havent because I'm going taller in the upcoming weeks.

    But like FWP said, its always best to get them redone whenever you do a lift.

    6" in rear, probably new driveshaft. I ran 3" for years with no driveshaft mods, and just went to 6". My rear shaft slid WAY out of the T-case (241). I had it lenghtened 2". My front was also too short now, so I bought a Superlift 1" spacer, and it is perfect now. Good luck. Every truck is different
