How much lift would an 81 K20 need to fit Rockwells under it? Thanks...
<font color="green"> When I looked into it a few years ago, I determined that you would need a minimum of about 10" lift springs to get the toploading 3rd member to clear the engine and crossmember in the front. You'd also need to lower the bumpstops a bit to avoid smashing the axle into the engine during suspension compression. </font>
I believe Steve Sharp (not a member of this site) runs his with only 4 or 5 inches of lift with very little uptravel due to lowered bumpstops. Someone who has seen his rig in person could elaborate more on this.
I did some figuring when I was planning on it, and figured that if I tucked the entire engine, tranny, tcase up into the body more, I could get away with about a 6" lift with plenty of clearance.
