    WOO HOO GOT MY 2\" BODY LIFT PUT IN!!! **with shifter mod pic* update again!

    /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif MAN WAS THAT FUN!!! adam (mudbogAD) and i got my 2" body lift installed today. we had a few minor disasters but it all ended well. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif performance accessories sent me some wrong stuff, the bolts and shifter extension were for a 3" lift /forums/images/icons/frown.gif so there are a lot of bolts i couldn't use so i bought some new ones that were right and we got it done. we went to the shop adam works at and extended the shift linkage. we lost one of the pucks and looked for it for about 5 minuites and then found it sitting between the hood and windshield. /forums/images/icons/blush.gif the gas tank filler neck was fine didn't have to loosten it even, and the steering shaft extended out just fine too. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif only problem i had was the linkage for the case. we gotta take one part out and drop it 2" in the middle like a crossover steering draglink. right now i can't get into 4-low but next weekend we'll fix that. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif went out driving and there is no difference in ride and handling. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif oh and to all the guys who have put body lifts on their trucks and said "getting the bolts loose was the hardest part", HA!! i got no rust at all and that was the easiest part of the whole thing. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Re: WOO HOO GOT MY 2\" BODY LIFT PUT IN!!!

    well good for you man...i dont think ill do a body lift becuase i would not know how to fab up a new shift linkag or whatever...im afraid i would get my self into more trouble than it would be worth...but i would like to see some pics i would like to do one while im replacing my body mounts and doing some body work like fixing my floors... but what exactly do you mean by taking part of the shift linkage out and droping 2" or whatever..could you explain that a little more it seems like a k5 and a burb would have the same problems with a body lift cause a burb is almost the same thing just a lot longer..but the shift linkage and all that would be basicly the same wouldnt it?

    yes, the shift linkage for the case would be the same (i would think).

    okay, have you seen a crossover steering system? the arm that goes from the pitman arm to the tie rod is the drag link. if you look at it most of them are not straight they bend in the middle. that's what i have to do with my linkage. i'll find a pic to show you.

    Good deal. I just got my 3" done. I took a torch to the 205 linkage and bent it back. Didnt have to touch the floor.

    **update** the suburban has once again changed her mind. last night it would not go into 4-low, now today in the parking lot of wendy's, it popped right in when i pulled on the shifter. so i guess i won't be having to modify the shifter. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
