I did couple srearches on here and As always I can't find it my self as on other forum pages i can't and then get flamed for it .

SO anyway .

I would like to know How good is the 2" lift on ebay . those aluminum 2" lift blocks .

I have crap load of aluminum at work and Lathe with bridgeport available for my disposal .


If I'll find info on the dimentions of those bolt holes etc. I would not mind making a set for my self . Materials are for free and it's only my time .



But I want to know Pro's and Con's of this type of lift ?

Thanks . Art

Art,
If you have over 40,000 miles on your truck, your springs have already dropped and are not worth doing anything with.
What do you paln to do with your truck and to what extent if it is wheeling??
Overal I would suggest you replace your springs and shocks, you get get 2"to 3"s and gain a better ride as well as a more functional truck off the road.
Here is a picture of my 99 with a 33" lift running 265/75/16's.
Good luck,
Mike J.

Mike J,
Is that correct? I had to read that line a few times.
Are you saying that at 40K miles we ought to be looking to buy new springs because these are now useless? That is a pretty sad commentary if this is true.....
Would you be kind enough to elaborate on this please?

I think mike is just saying that after 40,000 miles the springs have settled and may sit a little lower than they started out. New springs will do this even after 500 miles even if they are OEM replacements. At this mileaage the springs still have a lot of ON highway use left in them, But they MAY have lost a little strength and new springs would give the improved ride and the lift desired.

So how many miles are on your truck?
If you are planning to do alot of off roading I would suggest springs also and well as the steering dampner.
Good luck,

Yes, you are right, I think I stretched the numbers a little, should be 3"s. When I measure the front and rear height of my truck from the ground to the top of the wheel well trim it is 37"s.
