The 63" rears will move your axle back about 5 " and you will have to relocate your hanger brackets... it makes the shocks straight up and down and can make them too long when compressed, you will also have to lengthen your drive shaft... I dont know about the front havent done that one not sure of the purpose of that?

I ve read some where and been told that the 53inch leafs will work for front lift to match the rear 63's.?. My oem front waggy leaf's are shot.... Tadsal what you did with your rear body work is what I was going to do but I ran into problems when I started to cut into mine so now its cut right up to the back of the front set..

I removed everything (I do mean everything).
It starts on about page 5 or so of that link in my sig (the "It's Time" one).
I have no rear seat, do not care, that's where I have my HiLift and tools bolted down.

Sorry for the quality, but it's the only direct profile shot I have. The tires are aired up to 20 psi (much greater than I normally run, so they look bigger than normal). 63" Chevy rears, moved the perches back a few inches for a total of 9" wheelbase stretch, stock Chevy shackles at a too flat possition (see: adjustments to come). The front is only SOA, but stock springs, not longer. Maybe it'll help you somehow.

Hate to Hijack, but does anyone run the 63, on a stock wheelbase PU.

Thinking of going SUF in the rear, to go with my SOA..... And since that requires remountint the spring hangers anyways.....

You get the idea. Anyone tried it, how much flex?
Thanks
Doug

That would be Cranky_Jeepman.
Inboarded under the frame, GM 63" springs, LB but still in the correct wheel well locations.
I'm not sure how he did it other than by trial and error.
