    Ok, just curious here, but what can I do to raise my DD, 2001 Chevy Regular Cab pickup 2wd a couple of inches? Just one or two, just enough to fit some 265/75 BFG AT's or bigger /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Right now it has some bald 235 stock tires.

    I know I can add a zero rate or a block to the rear end, but what about the coils up front? Do they make a spacer or something that doesn't cost a lot of money?

    i would just do a couple inches of body lift and gap guards myself. and get the gap guards of course. but if you dont want to take that route i would add a leaf and coil spacers /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I considered that, but I like doing suspension work, more than BLs because of the hassle of rasing the bumpers and changing the linkage on my 5-speed tranny
