    I have a 90 jimmy and was planning on putting an aal up front and 2 inch block in the back. Would i need to get new shocks? Also can you use a zero rate with a aal?

    Thanks

    Oh, No you will not need new shocks. They would help but it doesn't sound like you are trying to build a suspension for off roading. If you want to get some lift for cheap just buy a body lift ;)

    If you don't mind trimming the body, you could just borrow a sawsall if you don't have one and trim the fenders up a bit. This should fix any problems you have. I am running 35's with a 2" leaf lift and trimmed justy a little bit at first and had no rubbing issues.

    Normally you will only have to trim the front. This can be done with little noticeability to the untrained eye ;)

    Hey nice truck, looks just like mine did when I got it. I tried keeping mine in good shape, just because it was a decent truck.
