    I plan to put a 6 inch sus lift on my k5 here sometime soon i allready have a 3 inch body lift on it,so that will make 9 inch lift total and i plan on running 39.5 inch boggers i have a dana 60 and 14 bolt so i have no problems with the axle part and i have a 350 with a edelbrock intake and carb and a good cam and headers in it so its a good healthy motor in my truck know and i plan to put in 4:88 gears ,does this sound like a good setup or no, anybody have better ideas ?

    What tranny and t-case do you have? Personaly, I wouldn't leave the 3 inch body lift in. Take it out, or get a 1" or a 2" and trimm a bit more. The rest sounds good. Good luck and take pics.

    Dont worry abou the 3 inch body lift... Everyone said I'd hate it and I think it complilents the 4 inch susp just fine!!!
