    Hi, I was looking at getting the ORD 1" Body Lift for an 85 K5 that already has a 4" suspension lift. Will the stock steering shaft still work out ok? Is there anything else to consider besides this?

    Thanks

    No problems with the steering. Put the pucks in and rag on it!

    if its an auto you will need to adjust the shifter linkage. maybe also the t-case shifter linkage. might need to trim the fan shroud.

    Good point about the fan shroud. After I put in the ord kit, I noticed my fan was really close. A little more poking around found that my motor mounts were worn. Replaced those and it gave me enough clearance to run it.
