Has anyone lowered the radiator after installing a body lift? If so, how?
I am guessing it would involve a bit of fabricating as you would have to cut out the bottom of your core support, then make braces to reconnect it lower. Then you'd need to make some kind of brackets to hold the top of the radiator.
All i did when i did my body lift was cut the fan shroud in half, formed some thin gauge stainless steel to the shape of the shroud and screwed it back together.
I was thinking of doing something similar. Do you have any overheating problems? Isn't the fan 3" lower on the radiator than stock.
Well on mine its 2" lower (I only have a 2" body lift) no, i have no overheating problems what so ever. When the body lift is all said and done, if you look through the front under the bumper, you will also see a gap there, my intention is to fill that in also (just haven't had time yet) that way all air goes into the rad through the grill like normal. But for now, i haven't had any issues and i've had my body lift on for about a year now /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
