    Eventualy I would like to get some 33s on my wheels. I have a stock 305 and someone told me that it will take too much power up turning those monsters. Input? I would like a sus lift and 33s but i rather not change anything under the hood.

    You will be fine. Heck my buddies stock 4cy jeep wrangler turns 35s with no problems other than being really slow.

    It's more of a gearing issue. What gears are you running?
