    I was wondering if anyone has had any experiance installing a 2 or 3 inch body lift on a 96 or 97 1500 truck.
    The reason I ask is I see all kinds of warnings from the lift kit manufacture about not using with a suspension lift (I have one) and air bags (have one of thoes also).
    Is it a cover thier butts thing or is it really a problem?
    I installed 35 in tires and am tired of rubbing the bumper and fenders when the wheel is turned and the suspension compresses so I thought about a body lift.
    Thanks, Chuck

    Thanks. That's what I figured.
    How big of a pain in the butt are they to install? I look under the hood with all the anti-lock braking plumbing and cringe thinking about having to possibly mess with that or some other unknown surprise.
    I would like to not even mess with a body lift and go straight to a SFA set up but finances won't allow that right now.

    We put a body lift on my friend's 97 Tahoe and didn't need to extend anything except the t-case shifter. I'm not sure we even needed to do that either...we heard some interesting noises, but nothing broke or stretched too much
