    Going to 4.56 gears and 35s. How much lift would I need on an 82'? Want to use springs front and back, any suggestions as to brand? Thanks

    Four to six inches. With four you will have to trim the front finders and I'm not sure about the six. Also remember that lift springs make for a rough ride. Think about doing a 4" shackle flip and add a 2" block for the 6" lift. I think it is in the technical section, There is a page of what to do with what tires. If it's not there, look around. I know it's here.
