    I hate to even ask this.

    I have like a 2.5-3" all spring Superlift kit on my K5 sitting outside that is currently not running. My K10 is stock. Instead of shelling out $500 on a new kit, I might just steal the lift off my K5.

    The lift on my blazer did NOT clear my 35's however. The only way I can solve this is to hack my [newly restored!!!:( ] K10, or go with a 2" body lift.

    Now my truck is a 4speed and all that jazz...how bad will the bodylift mess everything up with the shifter, tcase, fan shroud, bla bla.

    Would I just be better buying a 4" lift kit? [if anyone has 4" leaf springs for sale let me know] benbloom@hotmail.com

    I couldn't really go over a 2" body lift on my truck because the clutch would bind. This is with a mechanical linkage.

    I am running a 1" body lift and have no problems, but also have a hydro bellhousing.
