Clearing 37"

I am looking to lift my truck. I was wondering how high of a lift I would need to clear 37". I think I need a 6"m but was wondering if I could possibly clear them on a 4"? And what lift is a good a one. I want to do a suspension lift.

Thanks for all the help

Alex

at full lock you will hit the spring unless u set the steering stops , i have a 6" with 37's and clear them fine and i even put 40's on sometimes and clears them , just hits the spring when turning , you should be able to squeeze them with a 4" but it will be tight

If you want a great ride quality that will flex then you need a RS kit and SD lift springs..7-8" min to clear 37" on 9-10 rims. You should plan on crossover steering kit.

We have everything needed PM me if I can help.
