    I have a four-inch lift and 35’s on my 88 K5. My left leaf spring is an inch shorter than my right. I’ve been driving on it for about three months and realized my left front tire never rubs while the right rubs even in the slightest turns. I made a rough measurement w/ my hand and I only fit four fingers in between the tire and the rear corner if the front finder. On the right side I could fit my whole hand. With this I whipped out the tape measure and sure enough I got 47” on the left and 48” on the right. (This is on an even surface w/ the weight of the truck on the springs) I noticed this when I first installed it 3 months ago but a tech rep at Superlift said it would settle out. Now I’m wearing out ball joints and get popping noises front the right front end. Anyone got any input? I’m calling Superlift first thing Monday. Thanks -Tommy
