Here is my 1997 ccsb. Knucklehead son at the wheel. It has a 2.5 inch Tuff Country lift with 285/75/16 B.F. Goodrich tires. The overall lift with larger tires put it at just under 3 inches but there has been some settleing of the springs.

Yes, if you lift/level you will need an alignment. I put a 2.5" leveling kit on my 97, made it look much better.

That's what mine looked like. Drive slow, bumps are scary with it out of alignment that bad!

It MAY be able to aligned. OR it may need the drop brackets. Only time will tell. Also, you will want to get it aligned AGAIN a month later to compensate for the add-a-leaf setting in
