    Looked at an 85 k5, 4 inch susp lift, 31.5 x 10.5 x 15 tires, stock axels and drivetrain
    Now for the question: When turning the steering wheel stop to stop is the front end, from the frame up, supposed to lift up about an inch?:confused:

    Didn't look right to me.
    please let me know whay you all think.
    Thanks, Bruiser

    not sure if its suppose to but mine does it. when you turn left the passenger side rises and the driver side falls. opposite when you turn right.

    I would check for frame cracks around the steering box.

    Cracks at the frame where the steering box mounts are really common though
