    Hey guys, i'm so confused right now... I want to lift my truck, which is a 1995 GMC Sierra 2wd 1500. I like the way 18x9 wheels look with 33x12.5 tires. Question is, how many inches of lift should I lift it? I would buy from Canuck Motorsports. I was thinking either a 4'' spindle with 2'' blocks, or should I go with 2'' coil spring, UCA's, and a 4'' spindle with 3'' blocks in the back? Also, what backpacing and offset would be good for this? Thank you in advance for your help... Pics are appreciated.

    If you stay close to a 3.75 backspacing you can run the 4 inch lift, That's what I would do any way. I fit some 33x1250s on 15x10s with a 3 inch BL. You just have to decide for yourself how much lift you want. I wanted my truck to stay stuffed a bit so that worked out great for me, I know a few ppl on here have the 4 inch spindles and 33s and it just looks a bit too small to me, but I vote spindles and AAL not blocks.

    Ok thanks... so the lower the backspacing, the less chance of rubbing and sticking out?

    Heres my '95 C1500 2wd. 4" RC spindles, 3" blocks. 285-75-16 (33x11.25) on procomp 16X8. I had to do a little trimming up front, but it all fits. The only issue I had with the procomp's is that the centercaps were too short for the front (I still need to order some longer ones...)

    Its funny you say that, I had the same issue with my Pro Comps on my 95C1500, had to get the longer ones.

    Sorry - havnt been on the forum in a while. Thanks for the comments. I need to regear it, but havnt done it yet. It currently has 3.73's. Acceleration is a bit slow. Probably at least going to go with 4.10's.
