    I have some add a leafs right now, but I think they have sagged badly.
    I don't know anyone with a stock Sub either.
    Can anyone give me some height measurements so I can estimate how much actual lift I will get with a 4 inch all spring lift?
    Is there a spot we can measure from on the frame so tire size doesn't matter?

    Thanks
    Tim

    Top of the axle tube to frame should be a real number. Or, like mentioned, hub to wheel well top lip, but it has to be un-trimmed in that area.

    Is your concern that it will be too much lift? Your sig says you have 33's .. a 4" lift w/ 33's looks pretty sweet to me. :dunno:

    I will be going to 35s.
    The sub doesn't fit in the garage now but that is cause it is full of tools.
    I am just wondering since I have the add a leaf but I think the springs are still sagging badly.
    I thought a 4 inch would add about 2 inches height over how it sits today, but now I am wondering if it might actually be more than that.
    Is there anyone with a stock 1/2 4x4 sub that can measure the hub to wheel well?

    Thanks

    I would think it would only be about 2". It could be that your springs have sagged some.. but sometimes you just get used to the lift, and it appears to be lower than it is. I doubt you would see more than 2", and if you did, it would be very minor.

    Granted, I'm not saying it will fit in the garage.. I don't know, but I doubt it.

    your 4" springs will sag soon after if you're carrying tools or a heavy vehicle like a suburban, so I'd only bank on it lifting you about 2" over current height
