    ?\'s about 1\" body lift

    What all do you get with the lift? I need the pucks and bolts and washers for my 86 K10. I bought new poly mount already.

    I just bought and installed this same body lift last month. You get everything you need (as mentioned in your post) plus some great instructions as well.

    If you live anywhere near where you can aquire rust those rear bolts that hold the back of the blazer down near the gas tank will be a real major pain in the A**. I used a air chisel to get my mine out. Just a little heads up!!

    Eric.

    I've got a 2" and have never been more happier with it. I debated going 1", glad i didn't.

    I never even wanted a body lift. So 1" is the max I will do if at all. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thats how I felt also, but I dont want to trim past the inner fenders and my 36's are still rubbing quite frequently. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Only actual mod i did (which it turned out i didn't really need to do) was extend the auto tranny shift linkage. Steering column i just unbolted before lift and bolted back up after, t-case linkage didn't have to do anything only mine (you might have to adjust the shifter lever to clear the hole, or trim the hole a little bigger, just depends on vehicle and t-case lever), wires, i just made sure they were all out of the way before lift, and reattached to clips after done. Fan shroud will have to be trimmed no matter how much lift you do. Fuel tank filler hose, nothing was done to it. Its when you get into the 3" or larger where you start getting into the mods.
