Hi, I have a 1993 Chevy Silverado C1500 Extended cab, short bed... I am planning on incometax time throwing a lift onto it... I am thinking of the 2" Rough Country Spring kit(My factory springs are sagging),so thats 2" front springs,Ball-joint spacers,1" Rear blocks and shocks... I am also thinking of running a 3" Body Lift on top of that,for a total of 5" up front... if I do this, will I be able to run 33x12.50x15's on my stock wheels??? Or will I have to move up to 15x8's???
I am almost positive that I want the 2" RC lift... any pics of trucks with it???
but the body lift I am iffy on...
If I go No Body Lift, I will end up with 31" tires, which are what I am running right now with no lift...
please someone help me decide... pics would be great also...

i would not "piece" together a lift when there is lifts available... i did the Fabtech lift and its alright except the roads here are rough and i feel it!!!

With the rough Country lift and a body lift you'll clear 33x12.50s no problem. I cleared them on stock wheels with just a body lift and just had to trim some with the 15x10s. Id run that in a heart beat but I would try for 35s on stock wheels.

I ran 33x12.5x15s on stock steelies with no lift for awhile, no problems, no rubbing even after I put flares on
but I had to put a 3" BL on to run these 285s on 16x8s because the did rub so here it is with the homemade BL (same truck btw)

its not "piecing" a kit together... its a full kit with shocks and everything, then I am doing the body lift on top of that... I think I have decided on 285/75/16's on 16x8 wheels, then the RC 2" lift and 3" body lift... if yo
u have any questions on the lift, they have it at www.roughcountry.com, go to suspension lifts, then to 2wd chevy, and its the 2" kit... I think mine sags too much in the front for 33's with no lift... it almost scrubs with 31's... lol...

ok you know what you got planned, everybody does things different and nothing wrong with that. I personally would do a 4-6 or even a 7" suspension lift and leave the body lift out for now....
Good luck from another Steve:head:
