Looking for a 3in lift kit.
« on: November 16, 2012, 05:33:06 pm »
Was wondering if yall can find a 3in suspension kit with full rear springs no blocks or aal. Gonna do a 2'' body and 3'' suspension to fit my 35s when the time comes.

    Superlift still offers their 3.5" and 5" kits with full springs.  My advice is ditch the body lift and run the superlift 5" all spring....

    Sorry about the question, but what undesirable effects have a block lifting suspension vs a leaf spring one. I ask because I'm planning on going 5" up, but all kits i have seen come with those plastic blocks. Also, is there a difference when you lift body instead of suspension?

    The plastic looking spacer block kits you are seeing are what it called a body lift.  Basically the spacers you see go between the body of the vehicle and the frame....essentially raising only the body of the vehicle up.   There is no ill effects on the ride of the vehicle by using a body lift.  However.... you will need to address things such as shift linkage and bumper gaps created by the body lift.  The biggest body lift legally made is a 3"

    The springs you see in kits are whats called a suspension lift.  They raise the vehicle by increasing the distance from the frame to the axles of the vehicle.  In the case of a 1st gen dodge this is done with taller leaf springs in the front and either springs or blocks in the rear. 

    This is just a very basic description.....  if you have more ?'s   Pm me!
