    I just measured my front end after I put on a 4" Superlift Softride suspesion. With my 33's mounted on the truck I have 6" between the tire and back of fender, 5" between the tire and the front of fender and 12" between the tire and top of fender. Now I know this thing aint going to hit with 33's but just out of curiousity do you think 35's would hit during wheeling? I'm pretty sure they would have no problem clearing during daily driving.

    Oh yea... I forgot to mention. These are used springs so they have already settled.

    My springs are E-Z ride four inch and now that they've settled they DO rub in the front, with 33's and these are about 8,000 miles old, only in tough wheelin but they will rub so if you are going to use the 35's then I would suggest to cut a little off the front fenders at the bottom this will save some frustration!! Good luck

    Tuffcountry's ez ride is alot softer and moe flexy than the superlift. You probably will only have to trim a little off the back if any. I run the ez ride and 35s on the Jimmy and the rubbed like mad a first, but I just let the tires clearence themselves, and rounded the edges from there. As for the burb it has a racho kit on it and doesnt rub with the 35s on it. the suspension is a little too stiff for my liking, but about the same as suerlift ( didnt have a choice it was on there when I bought it). If you put a rough country lift on you can put 35s and not rub at all. My buddies Jimmy has yet to rub. The suspension is so stiff that the body flexes first, or it will pick a tire up before flexing.
