    hello ,is anyone here running 39.5s with a welded diff on the street in a suburban? I have a welded rear and 33s on my cj3a and it drives goog on road , but I dont know if the weight of the suburban and the 39.5s will make it bad.

    what axle? 10 bolt, not a chance. 14 bolt, it will last you as long as the welds are done right.

    The longer wheelbase will make it more streetable.

    welding a govlock isn't just, stab some stick in there. Search around its been done but not as easy as Open.
