I also found out the I have 3:42's in the front and 3:72's in the back:mad: but thats beside the point. how much lift do I have:confused: I have a 87 k5 with 35 inch tires and the fenders are uncut. from the ground to the top edge of the fender I have 44 1/2 inches. oh and I have a three inch body lift:o

    I have a total of 7in with 35 tires and I can go bigger but axels are the weak link. So my guess for you might be around 6ish

    i did some measurments for you. i have an 8" lift with stock 31's now. i got about 45 to the front fender. 45 - 8 = 37 take 37 + 3 (body lift) + 2 (tires) = 42" your shackle flip added 2.5" good guess chevy.
