Last year I decided to put a 3" body lift on my 72 K5. When I finished I had a problem with the "3 on the tree" shift rods not long enough and also the Clutch rod. While I was dealing with this problem I decided to go ahead and start the cancer treatment proccess. One year later and new floors, rockers, door post, fenders, etc. it is finally about to be finished! But I still haven't solved the shift linkage problem. Has anybody ever put a 3" body lift on a 1st gen with a "3 on the tree"? What did you do to solve this problem?
