Theres no way you need that much lift for 33s, they fit stock on an 85....
You can always play around with your current leaf pack, thats way cheaper than buying something you may not need. Are you gonna move up to 35s?

I have allpro's 3" springs with a 7" eye to shackle in front, and chevies with the same shackle and clear 33's with no problem. I bet I would have little rubbing with 35's.

Where are you in Cali? I'm sure that someone is close to you that could help you put chevys or something in that would flex and ride alot better than the stock length springs. Offer em some beer.

Are you opposed to the idea of trimming your fenders?

That would be a great setup. Just make sure to get highsteer with it.

anything over 3 inch will require other mods as well like steering mods and drive shaft lengthening. so consider that in when figuring up your costs. I have downey 3 inch springs and clear 33's easily the only time I scrubbed was at full stuff with the wheels turned to the lock.

I had a body lift of 2.5 and stock suspension and cleared 33's on an 84
then got the 3 inch downeys and removed the bodylift. and cleared the 33's no problems. then after wheeling these springs sagged a full 1.5 inches after much wheeling and I had to add the body lift back in to clear. it had 35's with little scrubbing. and it was only about 4 inches of total lift body and suspension with no fender cutting.

now it has rears up front and 63 inch chevies for a total of about 4 inches of lift and 35's and the difference between the last two mentioned set ups is mad flex compared to no flex. a whole lot of this has to do with the hysteer set up and longer springs and removing the torque rod on the front axle. and it wasn't a real challange to do with all the info posted on this board.

and getting stuff welded isn't real outrageous in cost if you don't know someone who can do it just go to your local welding shop.

Thank you Pirates BB

and like mentioned above there is probably someone close to you on the board here, who could do the welding and help you fab it up for the cost of supplies and beverages.

63's are easy
