View Full Version : Body or Suspension????

06-16-2008, 01:02 AM
Ive got both now and was gonna put both in but...... Ive read posts about the cops pulling trucks over for being to high. I drive my truck every day and therefore feel that that itself would make me more suspect than the guy that has a second car and drives his truck for recreation only. I realy dont need the hassel and get a VI.
On the other hand the reason I got both were so I could get through more places and go venturing more than I do now. Last time I was out I ended up at the other end of Chiliwack lake. I ended up going as far as I could but eventualy turning around. So I went out bought a 3" body kit.. Hung around NSOR and found my used BDS 3" kit. And now Im reading all these ppl getting pulled over with the high trucks.
So my Q is....... Do I put both in?? or just one?? What do ya say

3" suspension, with a rear locker, throw out your body lift

So here is the scoop...the only way the cops are going to pull you over is if your doing something stupid.....So with that being said it all depends on what your needs are body lift for tire clearance and well suspension lift for ground clearance you should decidde wahts more important first.Then you also need to realize that you can hide your body lift with inner fenders and with the bumper horns...if you leave it and your truck is all rusty adn looks like a beater than ya your going to get pulled over............Just my 2 cents

Body lifts are an easy way to add an inch to clear a tire or create room for a tire.. but if you are BUILDING a truck you should be thinking about what tire you can run with the 3 inch suspension lift by itself..if you are aiming for a specific tire size you can always trim a bit.. or add a body spacer or something. Higher is tippier too.

your 'suppose to' get in inpection onver 10cm or something, i don't remember exactly. my truck passed with my lift and stock tires (11") ou won't get hassled with 3" lift. i wouldn't bother with a body lift in an exploder. wouldn't recommend running too big of tires on it and suspension lift is usually more stable and won't get hassled as soon
