any one have any good ideas for a rear lift for a 93 PU.. i have 2 inch add a leaf i havent put in yet but going even higher in the front than i am now. so i would like to get a set of lift springs anyone know of a good 4 to 5 inch lift spring? i would like to have a BOLT IN kit. i would rather not weld in new mounting points just trust the stock welds on the stock mounting points anyone with any info would be helpful thanks.

The Blazeland Long Arm design all ready incorporates a ball joint space in the UCA Extension Bracket, so stacking additional ball joint spacers in the geometry would be unwise. Doubling up will cause too much droop- the ball joints, tie rod ends, and CV axles will bind. The Blazeland ride height is set to be approx. 3" higher than stock because of component limitations. To get additional lift, you will need to utilize design methods similar to those used in "Drop Bracket" lift kits.

The add-a-leafs you spoke of will get you fairly close to match the front of a Blazeland LT. You might want to get the other 1" of lift in the rear with a longer shackle. FYI- the add-a-leafs are going to be firm. A deaver Mini-Pack is a better way to improve performance of a stock spring.

For a brand new 3-4" lift leaf springs try Northwest Offroad. Also look into Superlift, Pro-Comp, Trailmaster, etc.

Hope that answers some of your questions.

You can squeeze 33's without a lift on stock backspaced rims...All depends on how saggy your rear is.

I easily fit 32's on my stock suspension, and now I have loads of room with a 3" lift.

You can lose a lot of clearance if your rear end sags and your tbars are adjusted to keep it level....

You ARE kidding, right?

I couldn't fit any 31's on my stock yota pizza cutters without rubbing at 3/4 steering lock, 30" was within 1/4" of rub with the 3.75" backspaced aftermarkets I ended up settling with.
I can run 33's on my 92 pickup no lift and they don't rub. I ran 33's on my 95 runner and only the rear rubbed from the sag. I tossed LC coils on and I can run 35's all the way around with a slight pinch weld mod. I have yet to put BJ spacers in and the 35's fit in the front without lifting.

Stuffing 33's no lift. The rear drivers side was hit at one time so the bumper was a bit close to the tire, the pass side didn't get that close.

This is how it sat with 35's and LC coils with the front stock.

The only thing about the bigger tire u go is re gearing your truck. 33's r fine but alot a people re gear a 35's on a pu. i have 285/75/16/ on mine with just bj spacers and no rear lift as of right now, it just lugs a little more its a five speed. U could go 35's tho its just hard on the clutch/ trans on stock gears

hey all. thank god i dont have to resurrect this thread. its still pretty fresh!

i am at TOTAL newb status BUT im going to try my hardest to avoid making this a "what do i do?__what is best?__how should i?__etc" kind of post

i really feel like ive searched all the searches a searcher can search and i feel like i need some *clarification* if nothing else, just to be sure i have it all straight

this all pertains to my interest in my new 1986 PICK UP
so ive gathered that there are 2 options for an IFS lift
A. ball joint spacers as offered by wabfab
B. control arm mods as offered by blazeland
both types call for an add-a-leaf or block spacer to level the rear
new, beefed up aftermarket torsion bars are a good investment in lifting an IFS system
is this all correct and am i not missing anything?

question:
1. what advantage does one have over the other? better ride? performance? longevity?

2. from a lot of descriptions addaleaf or blocks are all that is needed to level out the rear
but trail gear offers this
http://www.trail-gear.com/rear-lift-kits
which has all sorts of fun looking junk in it but the description says "Our rear lift kits are designed to match our front IFS Eliminator kits and classic lift kits"
does that imply that this kit is not for a regular old IFS BJ spacer/control arm lift?

3. what advantages/disadvantages are there to choosing blocks vs. addaleaf? i have only come across a comment that for offroading blocks are not good. truth?
(ok i admit that is one question i have NOT re/searched before asking )


thank you so much for the time

ok, I'm going to ask here instead of starting a new thread...

Will a 33x10.50 tire fit on the factory spare tire carrier under the bed of a pickup? I want to know before I buy a new spare tire crank thing.

I've haven't seen any comments about that in other threads. I'm going to buy 5 tires since 33x10.50s are generally special order.

If I've missed this info somewhere, please rub my nose in it.
