So myself and another forum member are planning on swapping lifts. His 8" for my 4"... problem is, He is about 8 hours from me and the both of us arent exactly "lift swappin pros". So I am here looking for some help.
What are we looking at trading for the swap? I mean I know we need to swap leaf springs, blocks, shocks, mounting hardware, nuts & bolts.
What I'm curious about is...
1) Will we have to trade brake lines to compensate for the 4" of difference?
2) Will the Drive Shafts need traded as well?
3) Anything I'm totally forgetting?
His truck has a "Custom 8" liftFab Tech on front and Pro Comp out back"
Mine... well I can tell u all I know except what kind it is.
Front: ubolts are 3 1/2" x 11, shocks are 23 1/2" on truck with 5 leaf springs
Back: ubolts are 4 1/4 x 15 1/2, shocks 27 1/2", 5 1/2" blocks and 7 leafs
Like I said, I'm no lift pro and we both bought our trucks with the lifts on them. Hopefully this will give us both some insight. BTW.... I THINK his truck is shortbed, mine is long. Thats the reason for the drive shaft question.
Thanks in advance!
