Lift and tires?

I'm ready for a lift. Nothing too big so I was thinking 4" (because I still want to use my goose neck trailer). I have a few questions:

Can I run 36" tires with a 4" lift?

Does anyone make an all spring (leaf) 4" lift? (I don't want to do blocks)

What other components will I need? (Extended brake lines, carrier baring, tie rods, have drive shafts extended)

Any info and/or help would be greatly appreciated!

you can find all spring 4" lifts, brake lines would be recommended, due mainly to age.... a 36 will fit with correct sized wheels. you will need to address steering items, ( pitman arm ) and track bar, ( adjustable recommended, but a drop bracket for sure ) you must match your steering angles to your track bar angle.

Thanks Shawnb99!

Trevor, you out there? I am looking at going with a 4" lift (all spring) and need some pointers please. I will also be installing Spyntec hubs at the same time so I will stop eating up OEM hubbs!!!!

Has anyone installed Spyntec hubbs? Easy or Hard?

I have those hubs. They are easy to install and GREAT customer service.

I would go with an Icon lift kit from trucktoyzperformance.com

You truly get what you pay for when it comes to suspension systems....
