    Right Now I Have A 6" Suspension With A 3" Body On My 1990 Full Blazer With 38's How Much Higher Do I Have To Go Without Killin The Body With A Sawzall Possibly Thinking Of Adding Shackles For The Front And A Flip Kit For The Rear Or Just Add More Leaves
    Help Is Greatly Appreciated Thanks Brandon

    Since your body has already been killed by rust, don't be afraid of the sawzall :D

    It all depends on what you want to do with the truck. 6" susp. and 3" body is already a high cog imho. I would just cut it to fit them. If you are opposed to that idea and dont plan on doing any rock crawling with it, go up a few more inches. Do yourself a favor though and get rid of that 3" body lift. Body lifts are junk and do not belong on anyones vehicle imo. Take the 3" body off, add a flip in the rear, some 6" front springs with longer shackles, zero rates, and a little fender chop and you should be good to go. You will probably have to cut out the inner fenders though because mine rubs on 6" with 37's. But my setup is somewhat flexy. 10" wont be flexy at all.

    So are you saying you don't want to cut it at all or just a little or what?

    If you don't want to cut it then go ahead and order a 12" kit. To fit 44's without cutting is going to take all the lift you can buy and it still might rub the back of the front fenders while wheeling.
