95 gmc2500

I just a bought a 95 gmc2500 on the weekend. it has a 4 inch lift in it now. I want to go bigger. how hard is it to jack up the suspension lift to get the extra 2 inches. I also want to do a body lift in it too. can I ask for some help to give me some ideas of how and how much this is going to cost me. I am doing to ball joints this weekend on it. if anyone isn't busy on Saturday, I don't mind a extra pair of hands helping out. I will buy the beer and the parts will be here too. just saying . thanks funibc this is a great site

why lift it more? my lifted 02 2500hd with a 6" went just as many places stock with cranked torsion bars and 32's. Honestly 4-6" is plenty with a 35s for the ifs. If you want to go bigger in would invest is a Solid axle conversion. Hope you enjoy your new wheels

to lift an ifs lift more youll need a completely new lift kit so think $2500-$4000 for the front. a body lift willl just destroy your truck

thanks for the info guys. I would like to put a set of 38s on it and I don't know if I will have the clearance. I think I will keep it the same. maybe do a body lift and see how that looks

you can crank the t bars but it really stresses the front end, body lift is cheap and easy, i had 37's on a 90 chevy with a 3 inch body lift and a little fender trimming, you can also put in some ford ifs t bar keys, look on fullsizechevy.com for a bunch of ways to lift up the ifs.

38s will tear your front end to pieces. Wouldn go any bigger than 35s unless its just a pavement princess
